bp logoBP has started its 2015 future leaders recruitment programme (FLP) to fast-track early career recruits to be the business leaders of the future.

This is a highly selective global recruitment and development programme, run by BP for candidates around the world to work in its refining and marketing businesses and its safety, operational risk and IT services functions.

This year’s programme aims to attract 30 individuals of the highest calibre to benefit from a bespoke global development programme that lasts a minimum of three years. Applications must be submitted by 31 October 2014.

Participants will benefit from significant mentoring and access to senior BP executives, combined with a real business role and an overseas placement.

As a minimum, applicants must have a postgraduate qualification, at least three years’ professional experience, a global outlook and the ambition and potential for senior leadership.

Last year, more than 4,000 individuals from around the world applied for the highly sought-after places. Previously, successful applicants from the programme, which started three years ago, have gone on to perform a multitude of diverse development roles, from being a petrochemical engineer in China to a fuel supply coordinator in Germany.

Rita Griffin, BP Group Marketing Officer, said: “We want to attract the very best individuals from around the world – the diverse leaders of tomorrow – who will play a key role in maintaining and enhancing BP’s excellence and innovation. With only 30 places available annually around the world, competition in the past has been intense.
