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 business. 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.
As a summer intern, you’ll have the opportunity to directly experience the role of technology within supply and trading and its importance to our bottom line. It’s an opportunity to gain an understanding of our business and the opportunities available within a global organisation that’s truly committed to your development and success. During the summer internship programme you will be assigned to one team but will have the exposure to the business, senior leaders and current graduates needed to make a decision about your future.
If you excel during your internship, there is also an opportunity to be assessed to join our graduate programme where you could continue to hone your expertise, share your opinions and shape the energy industry as a vital and valued member of the team. If you’re interested in excelling with BP, apply now.
