OUR COMPANY

Think about it. Heat. Light. Power. Mobility. Chemicals and materials to make the products that define modern life. All are made possible by oil and gas. As demand for them continues to grow, delivering that oil and gas sustainably and at a reasonable cost, remains one of the biggest challenges in the world today.

In our efforts to meet this challenge, which impacts every single person on the planet, we make some huge scientific breakthroughs and accomplish some genuinely astonishing engineering achievements. But for all of us, the most exciting things about working with BP is discovering what we, as individuals, are capable of what we can achieve together. It's an incredible business to be part of and an amazing time to be part of it.

Our role is to find, develop and produce essential sources of energy. We turn these sources into products that people need everywhere. The world needs energy and this need is growing. This energy will be in many forms. It is, and will always be, vital for people and progress everywhere. We expect to be held to high standards in what we do. We strive to be a safety leader in our industry, a world-class operator, a good corporate citizen and a great employer.

In Australia we are engaged in: the exploration for and production of oil, natural gas and liquefied natural gas; and the refining, transporting and marketing of petroleum and lubricant products. Via our refinery and a national network of terminals, depots and truck stops, we are one of the largest suppliers of fuel to Australia's industrial sector. We also have a network of some 1300 retail service stations.

  • Flexibility and work-life balance Support, you feel like a member of the team Variety in work content and the opportunity to develop and be challenged.
  • Exciting industry to be in.
  • Culture - everyone is very friendly and supportive (personally and professionally).
  • Some nice people here.
  • Flexibility, very friendly atmosphere.
  • Some cultural aspects, such as safety attitudes.
  • Minimal transparency on opportunities being available.
  • Depending on what team you are in you may be required to do a significant amount of work that does not utilise your tertiary level of education (typical of teams that do not have well established roles for graduates). I do understand though that someone has to do this work and a graduate is the most likely candidate...but it should not dominate in terms of time.
  • Graduate work is quite unfulfilling; lack of openness to fresh ideas.
  • Slightly bureaucratic.
