At BP, we recruit ambitious graduates like you at every stage of the energy life cycle - from geoscientists sending shock waves through the earth to find new oil and gas reserves and engineers building platforms in the ocean to extract them, to traders anticipating and reacting to changes in the markets around them.

Whether you want to be a future business leader, a world-class scientist or ground-breaking engineer, our three-year 'Challenge' and Integrated Supply & Trading (IST) Programmes are designed to help you develop the skills and experience you need. And at the same time, you'll get a unique insight into our work and discover how incredible an organisation this is to be part of.

To say these programmes are an inspiring way to launch your career would be an understatement. But exhilarating though they are, they're really just a starting point for even more amazing discoveries to come.

Who we look for

Because we offer such a breadth of opportunity in engineering, science and business, you could come to us with a good degree in practically any discipline. Wherever your talents and aspirations lie, we do expect a high level of academic achievement. But every bit as important will be the individual attributes and personal qualities you bring.

Together, we're determined to make a positive difference through our work; to create an enduring legacy that benefits the world for generations to come. Our whole approach is built on teamwork and respect, being consistent and having the courage to do the right thing. All of which is underpinned by a commitment to safety and excellence in what we do. It's essential, therefore, that you as an individual share those values too.

Where to go from here

Hopefully, by now, you'll have a better understanding of who we are and what we do. But there's more to our work and a career with BP than you could possibly imagine. So the next thing to do is get online and start making a few discoveries of your own. Find us on Facebook on
