Working as a controller in the city of Szeged in 2017, Balázs heard in the local news that bp was to open a center in town. Since he was already looking for career growth and he also found himself captured by the renown of the company, he decided to give it a try and apply for a position. The memories of his first experiences at bp are still vividly living in his mind.
Balázs currently works as a supply analyst, supporting our aviation business, Air bp. His job includes the quantitative accounting of the kerosene sold by bp, that is being transported by tanker trucks from fuel terminals to airports and to other buyers. To be able to precisely close the period at the end of each month, he needs to have a great understanding of the whole business, as well as to know who to turn to in case any issues come up. In order to do a thorough job, he cooperates with both external parties and internal bp teams. The terminals, the freight companies, and the airports report their stocks to be accounted for to Balázs. Internally, he is in close contact with the invoicing teams based in England and in Hungary, as well as with the invoice matching team to help him handling invoice related or customer complaints and potential discrepancies in quantities.
He has been in this position for 2 years now. He imagines his career to continue at bp in the field of finance, but within that, he is interested in the work of many other departments.
Due to that, Balázs always tries to educate himself and get some insights on projects that differ a bit from his daily job.
When asked about why he imagines his future at bp, Balázs gave us many answers.
Being the father of a small child, a great work-life balance is also very important for him.
He also highlighted the trainings that are available for bp colleagues. According to Balázs, by investing in people, bp develops its own infrastructure.
