Find your future at BP

At BP we’re striving to meet growing global demand for safe, sustainable and affordable energy. Our industry is changing faster than at any time in our lifetime, driven in part by innovative technological advances. As one of the earliest major energy companies to move to the Cloud, we have the largest uses of public cloud in the industry and our use grows every day. We operate one of the largest private supercomputers in the country and are investing heavily in the next generation of networks, computing platforms, data analytics tools to unlock insights and new ways of working. As one of our summer interns, you’ll have the opportunity to experience directly the role of technology.

You will also be assessed for your suitability onto the Technology graduate scheme. The scheme roles include Developer, Business Analyst, Security Incident Analyst, Risk and Compliance Analyst and Data Specialist.

Beyond this, you’ll need to be a highly collaborative person who wants to work with others to tackle complex problems and drive real change. As a company that never compromises on values, ethics and safety, you’ll also need to be someone who’s committed to doing the right thing.

Support and guidance will be on hand throughout the summer. Your learning is paramount, we’ll support your professional and technical development every step of the way. You’ll also be able to take part in other activities such as local community initiatives - we’ll give you both the encouragement and the time to join in.
