As a global energy business, we lead the world in powering a cleaner, more sustainable future. And as our business is so diverse, so are the types of people we employ: from engineers and geologists out in the field, to IT professionals, research scientists, financial traders, and retail workers.
Because of this, our teams come from all kinds of different cultures and backgrounds – so a career in Human Resources as a People & Culture Advisor is always going to be exciting, challenging and full of incredible opportunities.
About People & Culture (P&C)
At bp, our People & Culture professionals support the business to recruit, retain, and reward people who can keep us ahead of the global energy challenge. They also help build our internal capability by anticipating the demand for new skills. So of course, it is a business area that’s integral to our continued growth and development.
We’re committed to doing the right thing, working as one team, supporting our people’s development and creating a great place to work. And that’s in large part thanks to our P&C professionals. They act as critical thinkers and strategic business partners – drawing on their unique knowledge sets to offer advice, guidance and challenge to managers and employees on P&C strategy and every aspect of the employee lifecycle.
Our P&C Foundation Apprenticeship includes a Level 3 Digital Business accelerator apprenticeship qualification. You’ll have the opportunity to take everything you learn from your studies and apply it directly to the business, which will help you develop your career as a P&C professional in a world-leading multi-national organisation.
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 Foundation Apprenticeship programme, we welcome applicants from a range of academic subject backgrounds.
