Trading graduate programmes 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. Success here relies on astute insight from analytics experts, spot-on strategy and market tracking from commercial teams and decisive, informed action taken by traders. It’s more than a complex, fast-paced and demanding place to work. It’s a place where talent, teamwork and a supportive environment come together to make it an exceptional area in which to build your career.

Within our trading division, we offer opportunities in analytics, commercial, finance and risk, technology and trading itself. And whichever area of our trading business you join, you’ll broaden your horizons and expand your knowledge on a journey that will see you work with inspirational people and develop with comprehensive training. 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.
