BP relies on information. It’s what tells us how deep to drill our wells and where the best path for our pipelines should be. The Information Technology & Services function provides world class IT and telecommunication services and systems to support BP’s businesses and functions. Our systems are some of the most advanced in the world - enabling us to take on projects that are as complex as they are geographically distant. In Information Technology & Services, we work across every part of a global business making a difference to the way people communicate, share knowledge, use data and take advantage of innovation. These include bespoke trading systems, high performance computing and visualisation tools to support exploration and production, and retail transaction and distribution systems. We also host crisis and business continuity planning for BP.
IT underpins everything BP does and Information Technology & Services is one of the largest functions in BP. With hubs in Chicago, Houston, London, Singapore and Bochum, Information Technology & Services has a presence in over 53 countries globally.
Key accountabilities will be determined when you are assigned your first role on the programme. All Information Technology & Services roles are aligned to a profession and on FLP we currently offer opportunities in the following professions:
Architecture & Design
Architecture and Design (A&D) is a critical profession that bridges business needs and technology. A&D starts with a deep understanding of BP’s business needs. It then involves the definitions of models to enable the construction of IT solutions to address those business needs, while aligning to the organisation’s strategic architecture and design principles.
The profession spans the whole of Information Technology & Services and uses a tailored version of the TOGAF architecture delivery method as the basis for its Architecture Common Process (ACP). The ACP used within A&D describes how project/programme managers and the architecture teams work together to design and build IT solutions, the minimum steps that must be followed and the deliverables that need to be produced.
Business Analysis & Consulting
Business Analysis & Consulting (BA&C) is the primary interface between Information Technology & Services and the business. The profession identifies and meets the needs of the business based on an understanding of the organisation’s purpose, operations, goals and industry context - by matching technology needs, driving standardisation, eliciting and defining requirements, and leading sustainable Information Technology & Services-enabled transformation.
Project, Programme & Portfolio Management
Each year BP makes a major investment in IT to provide the information technology solutions required to support the business. People within the PP&PM profession manage these projects as well as optimising the project portfolio. This involves the successful leadership and coordination of different functional workstreams, managing diverse stakeholder groups, providing realistic project estimates and plans and managing the risks and issues that threaten project success.
Service Delivery is concerned with the provision of infrastructure, application and data services to BP’s businesses. The profession spans the whole of Information Technology & Services and uses ITIL-based processes to manage the delivery of services from service providers, contractors and employees in order to provide the required business services to our clients. People in the profession have knowledge and experience of service management practices, management of external providers, business continuity and the legal and security context.

With a workforce of 80,000 employees, BP operates with business activities and customers in more than 80 countries across six continents. Every day, we serve millions of customers around the world. We are continually looking for talented, committed and ambitious people to help us shape the face of energy for the future.
Demand for energy is growing - rapidly and relentlessly. Estimates suggest it will increase by 45% over the next twenty years. BP has proven reserves of 18.3 billion barrels of oil and operations on six continents. And, for the past 17 years we’ve maintained more than 100% replacement rates. But numbers and statistics don’t complete the story - people do. Now we’re looking for individuals whose talents and abilities will ensure we maximise the value of our resources and leverage our investment in technology. We believe that strong, knowledgeable leaders are essential to our progress and to creating an organisation that’s fully united in its outlook and approach. BP is one firm, and we’re committed to building a workforce with shared goals and a culture of teamwork.
