What will the apprentice be doing?
To excel as an HR professional, you need to understand business strategy, how the business works and how to get the best out of people to support business goals. That’s why, on our HR degree apprenticeship programme, you will study a business management degree. You’ll have the opportunity to take everything you learn from your studies and apply it directly to the business, which will help you develop your career as an HR professional in a world-leading multi-national organisation.
What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?
On our HR degree apprenticeship programme, you’ll enjoy plenty of on-the-job experience, with time dedicated to formal learning too. This will include core degree activity, as well as access to our own internal HR learning and development curriculum, to help you develop depth and breadth across a variety of technical, business and leadership capability areas.
On this four-year programme, you’ll split your time between a number of exciting areas; HR Services, HR Specialist and HR Partnering. Each role will give you a comprehensive introduction to bp, our businesses and our HR function. In these rotational roles, you’ll gain knowledge of the sub-disciplines within HR, and develop the technical, business and behavioural skills you’ll need to become a well-rounded HR professional.
What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?
You’ll have full support from your apprenticeship training provider and the bp HR early career programme team – as well as regular structured feedback on your development, progress to date, and next steps. In addition, you’ll be guided at every step by an experienced mentor and buddy.
Beyond formal early career programmes, bp employees tend to move roles every two to four years (subject to performance and experience).
We are committed to providing the guidance and tools to support your continued development and success.
Throughout your career at bp, there will be many options for further development. Whichever route you choose to take, we can offer you a very rewarding career.
