About bp

We’re reimagining energy for people and our planet. Working across almost every part of the energy system, we’re leading the way in reducing carbon emissions and developing more sustainable methods for solving the energy challenge. 

We’re a diverse team determined to find answers to problems that must be solved. But we know we can’t do it alone.  We are looking for people who share our passion to bring a fresh perspective and challenge our thinking in our ambition to achieve net zero.

About Trading & Shipping

T&S keeps the planet’s energy moving. With expertise in physical supply and trading, this part of bp enables over 12,000 customers to make the most of their assets – while offering an excellent place to begin a rewarding career.  

Alongside a unique opportunity to act as a key integrator of multi-energy solutions across bp, T&S supports the company’s journey to net zero. We're constantly pursuing commercial opportunities, optimising our core businesses, looking for new revenue streams, and striving for more innovative digital and cultural solutions. 

Alongside the on-the-job experience, you have the opportunity to study for a Level 3/4 apprenticeship standard, in either a Business or Data Science discipline with full support from an external training provider.  In addition, you’ll be guided by an experienced mentor from the T&S business.

Who are we looking for?

We believe in hiring people with the right core competencies and interest, rather than specific technical experience. That’s why, when it comes to our apprenticeship programmes, we welcome applicants from a range of academic subject backgrounds.  

Most importantly, we’re looking for people who have a real passion to work in a global business. 

You will need the ability to work on your own initiative but also to work co-operatively as part of a team. You’ll have a keen eye for detail, excellent written, verbal communication and numeracy skills, and the ability to prioritise your workload.
