Our Retail business provides advantaged fuel, convenience and loyalty programmes to customers at over 17,000 service stations worldwide. Our market-leading lubricants business delivers Castrol and a range of high-quality BP branded products to over 100 countries – products that help cars, ships, aeroplanes, industrial plants, wind turbines and even computers run more efficiently. 

For penultimate year students, our virtual paid 8-week internship program will commence 11th January 2021. As a bp Customer & Products Commercial Intern, you'll gain insight into the real world of business. You'll execute and deliver a multi-discipline project within a team environment which will ultimately contribute the achievement of bp's reimagined strategy. Through this project you'll benefit from a structured programme of work with real responsibility. You'll experience on-the- job learning, along with development training to suit your role. Working across teams and functions, you'll enjoy access to some of the most talented people in their fields. 

No matter where you work at BP, you'll be valued, included and respected. We'll provide you with on-going support and we'll reward you for the great work you do.

About You

You'll have strong organisational skills, and the ability to deliver results in a collaborative environment. Your agility to learn and adapt will be key, along the energy and ownership to make the most of this fantastic opportunity.  

Specifically, within our Customer & Products Commercial Internship space we're looking for Interns with foundational knowledge in business analysis, modelling and strategy. As a Commercial Intern you will have an interest and/or skill in delivering economic value back to a business, identifying solutions and strategies resulting in cost savings and a natural negotiation style. 

You must be comfortable making courageous and bold decision, digital fluency, a keen eye for analytics and the insights they provide. You'll have career aspirations within a customer-centric and innovative convenience & retail business within a leading Integrated Energy Company.
