BP Australia – Intern Takeover 2017
BP Australia - Grads and Interns at BP – Our Perspective
1. BP is an integrated energy company
Being fully integrated means we engage in all aspects of the oil and gas supply chain, from exploring, producing, refining and trading through to distribution, marketing and sales.
2. Our career opportunities are broader than you may realise
A career at BP could see you working anywhere from sales, marketing or retail to finance or engineering. You can enter our business at any stage of your career – from intern or graduate level, right up to a senior level leader. There are plenty of opportunities to grow and develop a career at BP.
3. Connected to a global market
At BP, 75,000 team members in more than 70 countries around the globe
work together to supply the energy that keeps our world moving. In Australia, we employ more than 5,700 employees, with operations in every state and territory and main offices in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.
4. We developed Australia’s first-ever fuel payment app
BPme enables BP customers to pay
for their fuel from the comfort of their vehicle. By offering our customers a faster and easier way to fill up, we’re using technology to revolutionise the way our customers refuel.
5. We’re on our way to becoming Australia’s leading fuels retailer
The BP brand shines brightly at roughly 1,400 service stations around the country. We’ve been operating in Australia for almost 100 years and we’re proud of it! Our customers are at the heart of who we are and the decisions we make.
We are proud to employ more than 3,500 retail staff at our company-owned stores who deliver outstanding customer service to around 60 million customers every single year.
6. We operate the country’s largest oil refinery
Located in Perth, BP’s Kwinana Refinery has provided quality and reliable fuels to Western Australia and beyond for more than 60 years. Kwinana is the largest
and most modern Australian refinery. Operating a refinery of this scale and with such a high level of economic importance to the country has its challenges. This is why, at every step of what we do across BP, safety is our number one priority. Our guiding principles are designed to ensure that everyone who comes to work for BP returns home safely.
7. We’re passionate about gender equality and diversity
We remain as committed as ever
to building diversity of experience, perspective and gender in our business. Within Australia, approximately 42% of our employees are women, and more than 2.5% of our employees are Indigenous. BP is an inclusive place to work and diversity in all of its forms is both embraced and encouraged.
8. We care about our communities
BP strives to be a world-class operator, a responsible corporate citizen and a great employer. We believe we have a positive role to play in meeting growing energy demand around the world and we are committed to the communities in which we operate.
Every year, BP donates hundreds
of thousands of dollars in funding
and fuel to community organisations across Australia. Our employees also volunteer hundreds of hours of their
time to our partner organisations. We take our partnerships seriously and we are committed to long-term, enduring relationships that have measurable community benefits. Our community initiatives range from reducing food waste at our retail stores through OzHarvest, creating opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples via AIME and the University of Melbourne Business School, to funding breast cancer services in partnership with the McGrath Foundation and protecting Western Australia’s coastal biodiversity and wildlife through Coastcare and Native ARC. BP also has a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) which supports
the Indigenous community through employment opportunities, educational partnerships, skills development and a commitment to buying products and services from Indigenous businesses.
9. Our company values are at the heart of everything we do
We care deeply about how we deliver energy to the world. A set of guiding principles influence everything we do and are designed to make us a safer, stronger and better company. These five shared values – safety, excellence, respect, courage and one team – convey what we believe, how we aim to behave and what we aspire to be as an organisation.
We’re serious about our commitment to ensuring that our people are always safe, respected and cared for at work. We’re also dedicated to working together, as one team, to make a real difference in providing the energy that the world needs today and in the future.
