Application process

So what’s the process for getting a job in a BP store? Well, first there needs to be a vacancy. To find all of our current vacancies, visit the Search and apply page on this site. Unfortunately, we can’t accept speculative applications or CVs – even if we do admire your initiative!


For customer service assistant roles, you’ll simply need to follow our application process online which includes answering a few multiple choice questions (legal stuff, nothing to worry about) and some questions about customer service and why you want to come and work for BP. There are no tests as we want to recruit you based on who you are rather than on what you have done previously or understand about retail - we can teach you that! For management roles, you'll need to submit your CV to us.


Once we’ve received your application, we’ll review and score this carefully.

If it’s a ‘no’ at this stage…

If we decide not to progress your application for the role you’re interested in, we’re more than happy for you to apply for another. So if you find something you like, go for it! Just remember that you’ll need to wait six months, as that’s how long it takes before our super recruitment robot can process your records again.

If it’s a ‘yes’ at this stage…

If you've applied for a customer service assistant role and we think you’d be a good fit, we’ll give you a call to arrange a telephone interview to help us find out what makes you tick. If you're successful at the telephone interview stage, then we'll follow this up with a face-to-face interview, so we can both learn more about each other.

If you’re applying for a management role, your interview will take place in two stages - which is usually two face-to-face interviews including a store visit so you can see first-hand how our stores operate.

Good luck – hopefully we'll be welcoming you to the team soon!
