BP is recruiting IT professionals to train as future leaders of its company.
The oil company's Future Leaders Programme aims to find up to 40 candidates for its information technology & services (IT&S) and other departments.
BP said IT skills are central to its business. "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. 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 IT&S, 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," said BP.
"As an IT professional you could be working on projects in upstream, refining and marketing, trading or within a central function like finance or HR. IT&S forges strong partnerships across every part of BP and our team pioneers new ways to solve problems by finding and applying the best digital technologies," BP added.
The firm is looking for candidates with IT-related postgraduate qualifications with professional IT experience. Recruits will rotate across two different roles and receive technical and professional training at BP's IT&S Academy.
Applications are accepted until the end of November 2011. Successful applicants will start the Future Leaders Programme between February and July 2012.
Computer Weekly has launched an information resource called ITworks to empower the digital economy through IT skills and training (ie. help you get a job).
