Summer internships and graduate roles within the Trading function of BP.

Every year, BP invests billions of dollars searching for all forms of energy and supplying our customers with fuels they need. As a commercial intern or graduate you’ll help to ensure they make the best use of their investment.

Integrated Supply & Trading (IST) is one of the world’s largest and most successful energy trading organisations. BP engages in controlled trading around asset and supply position and the commodities traded go way beyond crude oil and natural gas.

Within IST, you could be involved in anything from analysing data, organising shipping operations and reporting daily profit and loss, to directly supporting the traders whilst always looking to optimise BP’s performance and ensuring our global customers receive a safe controlled supply of energy products.

 

Trading

As a trading intern or graduate you might spend some time in analytics, studying information about supply and demand in the energy markets and putting it into formats which will be useful to the traders as they make their trading decisions. You might also spend some time in a control role, looking at the risk exposure and the profit and loss of a trading book on a daily basis, which will help them to understand how traders put together and manage a portfolio of positions. A third typical role would be in operations, which involves looking after the movement of our products around the world – for example, making sure that ships arrive to collect cargo on time, that the correct cargo is loaded onto the ship, that the captain knows where the ship is going and how to get there on time, and that the cargo is correctly discharged at the other end.

  • On track for a minimum 2:1 degree or equivalent in any discipline
  • The energy sector is broad and more exposed to risk than many other industries, so you must be able to blend technical depth with shrewd business understanding.
  • A strong interest in building your financial skills, as well as a passion to excel and deliver results.
  • 320 UCAS points (or equivalent).
  • Good analytical, negotiation and people skills.
  • A real interest in trading and some entrepreneurial flair – can be demonstrated through involvement in student societies, or set up of own businesses, or involvement in other relevant activities.
