Future Black Leaders (With Tim Campbell) Discovery Week UK

Rolling deadline
Engineering, Energy & Infrastructure

Join us and the brilliant entrepreneur Tim Campbell on our paid discovery week to give you a genuine insight into our business and to show you where you could fit in.

You will have the opportunity to network with the Positively Ethnic Network (PEN), attend professional skills workshops and seminars, meet other students and have the opportunity to shadow a Graduate within an area of the business that you are most interested in (subject to availability). As well as that you will meet recent graduates and hear from industry leaders, building both skills and knowledge.

By the end, you’ll have a sense of how we work and the global challenges we’re finding answers to. Our programmes support the recruitment and development of students from ethnically diverse backgrounds.

The  programme will take place during the university spring holidays. You will spend time in our Sunbury-on-Thames office and may travel to other locations for your shadow experience. As well as being a paid programme, travel to and from the placement will be reimbursed and accommodation will be provided.


To be eligible for this programme, applicants must be in their pre-penultimate year of study. For example you may be a first year student on a 3 year course or second year student on a 4 year course and graduating in 2023. Academically we look for you to be on track to achieve a 2:1 (or above) in your final year of study.

Remember, you can only apply for ONE opportunity. If you are not sure that this is the opportunity for you, please review our Insights Opportunities to check the best match for you.

Please be aware that should bp or government health and safety guidelines dictate that it is not suitable to deliver this programme in person, we would aim to run this virtually. While we hope that the on-site programme will take place, our contingency virtual offering will still provide exposure, education and insight into bp.
