Job Details

This Finance Apprenticeship sits within our Accounting, Reporting & Control (ARC) function, which is a major part of bp’s global Finance Organisation. ARC combines technical finance skills, business knowledge and a transformation mindset to create and protect value for bp, support delivery of our net zero ambition using skilled technical acumen and of course ensure we meet our regulatory reporting requirements. 

We lead the delivery of transparent, controlled and insightful financial reporting to bp’s businesses, leadership teams and external stakeholders. We provide meaningful assurance through design and operation of a robust control environment, the application of rigour and judgement and the effective operation of standard processes.  
In ARC, you’ll have the opportunity to be a part of it all, working with some of the most diverse and high performing teams around as you study toward a recognized Data Technician qualification. 

Study for an AAT Level 3 qualification 
This apprenticeship offers an excellent opportunity for you to study for the AAT Level 3 qualification. This level will encourage you to master complex accounting principles in both Bookkeeping and Management Accounting, and the on-the-job experience will help you gain valuable insight into many aspects of practical application – and ultimately support your learning. 
You will study 5 modules: 


  • Advanced Bookkeeping 
  • Final Accounts Preparation 
  • Management Accounting: Costing 
  • Indirect Tax (IDRX) 
  • Advanced Synoptic Assessment (this also forms part of your end point assessment) 

What to expect 
ARC has three main disciplines: control and assurance, technical accounting and external reporting. It also houses our Treasury Finance function. The role is hosted by our control organisation, but there will be opportunity and scope to work across all teams within ARC, gaining valuable work experience across a variety of key areas and discovering a range of opportunities – plus you’ll be working with many hugely experienced finance professionals. 
We will work with you and your qualification provider to ensure you have the right balance of course based learning and on-the-job experience. As an apprentice, you will have 20% of your time set aside for studies.  The rest of your time you will be working in a real job, benefiting from bp’s hybrid office / home policy.  This role will be based in our Sunbury office. 



BP is a global energy business, working towards producing cleaner energy, while lowering carbon in a safe, sustainable way – to help the world keep advancing. It is only by bringing together diverse people in one, world-class team that we’ll succeed. And when joining our Apprenticeship programmes, you’ll have a part to play too.

Our Apprenticeship programmes will give you a platform to become a business leader, leading scientist or ground-breaking engineer - offering you plenty of opportunities to make a real contribution, while helping you achieve your full potential. Our diverse and inclusive environment focuses on teamwork, respect and ambition, as much as on academic achievements. From day one, you’ll be offered a real chance to build a challenging, varied career and to contribute at any stage of the energy life cycle. At BP, you can achieve your goals, while making a meaningful impact for millions.
