Supply and Trading Division - Technology Opportunities
at BP

The supply and trading business is the commercial face of our organisation – it’s where we buy and sell energy and transport resources to customers. And as one of the leading traders of oil and gas in the world, it’s an impressive operation. The rapid flow of information is crucial to the success of BP’s supply and trading sector. And it’s the work of a global, dedicated, information technology and services (IT&S) division that makes a difference. Delivering innovative IT to the business, IT&S enhance supply and commodity trading across supply and trading’s global gas and oil strategic performance units.

Our graduate programme

Join us and you’ll be part of a rapidly changing business that will constantly test your technical and personal skills. As a graduate on the supply and trading technology programme, you’ll play a pivotal role in helping the business with new systems, working in partnership with traders to develop new ways of working for the future. Our carefully thought-out approach will provide opportunities to increase your technical knowledge and personal capabilities through practical experience and formal training that’s tailored to your needs.

The programme offers some of the best training and development the industry has to offer. Typically lasting two years, you’ll have the opportunity to work in two very different teams — giving you experience of a delivery role and a supporting function. During the programme, you will:

  • Push the boundaries of our current thinking and bring your fresh focus and energy to help us innovate and challenge the way we make the most of technology in a dynamic business
  • Learn how to implement change, innovate and help us be part of the technology of tomorrow within our trading business.
  • Be supported by your mentor and training team every step of the way.

We believe that this combination of learning, development and breadth of exposure will give you the best possible start to a career within IT&S, IST. By the end of your rotational programme, you’ll be amazed by how far you’ve come. And as exhilarating as all this may seem, it will just be the start of your BP experience.

Who we look for

Because we offer such a breadth of opportunity, you could come to us with a good degree in a range of subjects. What’s most important is that you have development skills in one or more of the following: C++, Java, .NET, scripting languages or XLM, and at least one object operational database. We’ll also expect you to have demonstrable experience of delivery using a broad set of technologies in an academic or business situation and experience of working with real time or large complex data sets.

Find your future at BP

We’re powered by different perspectives. Together, we’re combining our knowledge, skills and ideas to create a brighter future for energy. Whatever your background – chemist or engineer, technologist or trader – you’ll find a future here at BP.

We find, develop and produce energy resources, every day – energy that’s behind the products that keep us all moving. That’s a challenge we rise to as a team. From creating industry-leading infrastructure to developing new, sustainable technologies, it takes all sorts of people to make our work possible. You could be one of them.
