About Us

BP brings together the luxury of M&S Simply Food, the convenience of BP Connect and the delicious treats of Wild Bean Café. The notion of forecourt shopping has completely changed!  The business is going from strength to strength and it's a perfect time to be part of something fantastic!

At BP sites you can purchase everything from a delicious croissant, a fresh cup of ground coffee, a fresh sandwich, a tin of Heinz Baked Beans, to a car wash. They are delivering more and more to truly create complete convenience retailing for all their customers.

The convenience, quality, and superb service they offer is really appreciated by the millions of customers who use their stores every day. It’s the 4,500 people who work throughout the retail division who make sure these customers have this enjoyable shopping experience and BP believe these people deserve a lot in return. They provide their team with an upbeat atmosphere to work in, superb training and a generous BP benefits package which include great holidays, incredible pensions and a bonus which is focused on an individual’s behaviour and performance, making it very achievable. They also give them the opportunity to progress in an international company that views the voice of every employee as important.

Following a successful rollout of their Marks & Spencer Simply Food concept stores, BP continues to move forward and is looking to expand this ever growing business even further. This will involve further developments of store formats, and a major focus on customer service to ensure every customer journey is a great one and repeat business builds further success for this iconic retailer.

A fresh and modern ‘one-stop-shop’, BP Retail stores have been developed with the busy consumer in mind. They offer real choice and quality to everyone. They have stores throughout the South, the Midlands, the North West, Yorkshire and Scotland and despite this very wide presence, they are still growing rapidly. Whether you’re leading a team or joining one, you’ll play an essential part in one of their innovative retail businesses. BP is proud of its expansion program, their commitment to convenience retailing in its truest form and also that their high standards have been recognised within the industry.
