About the role:

For penultimate year students, our paid 12-week internship program will run from late November 2020 to February 2021. Whichever route you choose, you’ll get a role which will add value to our business – with your own responsibilities and an opportunity to shine. Our internships give you an insight into the real world of business. You’ll do real work and projects that that impact BP, our stakeholders and our customers. In some instances, you might also be able to take on casual work after you’ve completed your internship with us.

You’ll benefit from a structured programme of work with real responsibility. You’ll experience on-the- job learning, along with development training to suit your role. Working across teams and functions, you’ll enjoy access to some of the most talented people in their fields. We’ll provide you with on-going support and we’ll reward you for the great work you do.

We have two (2) available positions for Chemical Engineering Interns within our 2020/2021 programme. As a Chemical Engineering Intern with bp Kwinana, you can expect to apply your university learning to solve real life problems while learning some of the fundamentals of working as an engineer in the energy industry. You will be based onsite at our Kwinana Refinery* and assigned projects and a supervisor and be expected to use your initiative as well as draw on the experience of our site personnel to achieve your objectives. At the end of the period, you will get the opportunity to present your results, and may even see your work make a positive difference to the way the refinery runs!
