Hydrogen is the element that’s going to get the world to net zero faster – not just when it’s integrated with renewables like solar and wind, but also when it’s combined with bp’s values and the best talent out there.

bp is determined to achieve net zero by 2050 or sooner – Hydrogen and Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) are a key part of this plan. Using the elements of success, we’re on a mission to decarbonise the world and create a better future for us all.

This role is an opportunity to join bp’s Global team of civil engineers supporting bp’s growing agenda in low carbon energy and resilient hydrocarbons. The focus of the role will be on the design, construction and integrity management of onshore civil engineering infrastructure in support of bp’s Hydrogen and CCS projects and operations.

We are getting ready to start a variety of exciting projects in USA, Middle East and Asia Pacific, which are all working towards net zero by 2050 or sooner. Therefore, whilst this is an opportunity to work on a range of global tasks, the role will be initially located in our office in Houston (USA) or Chicago (USA). Subsequent project roles may include secondments into the offices of the primary project contractors. bp operates a 60/40 office:home flexible working policy.

bp is a global company that offers a world of opportunities. Expect world-class training and the flexibility to realise your full potential, all while leaving a legacy to be proud of.

Apply now for life-changing roles with far-reaching impacts.
