As a first step, nothing prepares you better for a career with us than an internship. Our internship program provides hands-on, career-specific experience working full-time, usually during summer breaks. You’ll work on real projects that deliver tangible benefits and measurable results. At the same time, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about and help to solve some of the most important issues we face. You will experience genuine teamwork, and work alongside highly qualified and experienced colleagues, while you work on live projects and operations, using the latest equipment and technology. Every year, we take hundreds of interns studying a range of disciplines into our internship program, many of whom go on to join us full-time when they graduate. Opportunities exist in all major areas of BP to explore your career aspirations and develop the technical and professional skills you will need for a successful career, while earning a competitive salary and learning about the world of business.
At the beginning of your internship, we discuss with you the skills we hope you will develop and encourage you to keep a record of your progress. All interns are supported by a line supervisor who sets your objectives with you and ensures you have the training and equipment to succeed. A detailed and focused appraisal process is essential to ensure that you get the most from your experience. Your line supervisor will monitor your progress and discuss it with you throughout the internship, and specifically during a mid-internship appraisal. This helps you to see where you are succeeding and what else is needed before the end of the internship. Additionally, you will also be assigned a buddy who helps network you across BP as well as address any questions you have. Depending on your performance, you could be offered a full-time job following the end of your internship.
