May 2019: External Event – BP’s Military Placement Programme – London

BP’s Supply and trading business offers a fantastic structured placement programme giving top military leavers the opportunity to gain commercial experience at BP. If successful in gaining a place on the programme, you’ll complete a 12 month paid placement in which you’ll receive all the training and development you’ll need to deliver great things. With the support of a dedicated mentor, you’ll gain a good understanding of the wider supply and trading business as you develop your skills and knowledge to go on to apply for a permanent position.

Applications open from 4 February 2019.

Placements will be in our London, Chicago and Houston offices. Each role on the military placement programme offers a different experience. Review the role descriptions here and choose the one which most appeals to you. You can apply to one position only and must have the right to work in the country to which you apply. You must be available for full-time employment for 12 months from May 2019.

Service leavers can offer unrivalled experience, outstanding personal qualities and a wealth of transferable skills that will be of considerable benefit to our Supply and trading business.

By definition, military personnel are courageous, self-disciplined, highly motivated and results-driven. You’ll have been tested in highly demanding and pressurised situations. Quick to learn, you pick up new skills and adapt to new circumstances easily. You take responsibility for your actions and get things done, first time, whatever it takes.

These skills and attributes are hugely attractive to BP. Combine this with excellent analytical skills, effective networking, excellent communication skills, the desire to learn, ability to deliver commercially and a genuine interest in the oil and gas commodity business, and you could be the ideal candidate for our programme.
