Marci had already heard about bp even before the office in Szeged opened in 2017. However, he only started to pay closer attention to it, when one of his university classmates started working there and shared all his great experiences. After hearing details about the company, Marci applied and started his very first full-time job at bp in May of 2018. Understandably, he was a bit anxious on his first day, but when his team leader introduced him to his co-workers, all his nervousness quickly disappeared.
Marci’s first position was a junior supply analyst. His core activity was invoice matching for the Polish Business. It meant that he was responsible for the accounting of the invoices of products that bp bought for direct selling from 3rd party businesses in Poland. He cross-checked prices and volumes of these products with the supply team in Poland. Then, once the accounting was done by Marci and the team, the process was continued by a third-party organization, who managed the payments.
He claims that he had learned a lot during this period.
In September 2019 he was promoted and became a supply analyst, this time supporting the Spanish business. Although his main task remained invoice matching, the pace and the workload were quite different in this role. The Spanish business had stricter deadlines and a different kind of bureaucracy.
After spending more than a year in this position, Marci feels like he adjusted to the Spanish business.
However, Marci soon passes this well-built business surrounding to his successor, as he was offered a new opportunity. He is happy to take on a new journey as a Senior Supply analyst, this time supporting our North American Fuels Business.
Besides the career opportunities, Marci says that another reason he really likes working at bp is the inclusive mindset. According to him, this culture makes everybody feel like they belong: people are encouraged to speak up and managers actually listen to their problems.
Marci is also quite invested in bp’s new purpose – reimagine energy and becoming a net-zero company. He says that it is a direction for the company, that he can fully support and stand behind. He feels like his job is also connected to bp’s strategy – becoming an integrated energy company focused on delivering solutions for customers.
