Babcock is the home of epic engineering. We’re a FTSE 100 company and the UK's leading engineering support services organisation, with revenue of circa £3.5bn in 2014. We take care of all kinds of massive, complex projects. Projects that enable the world’s biggest companies and governments to provide the important services we all rely on in our day-to-day lives. From maintaining schools and railway lines to training firefighters and fighter pilots; from keeping the BBC World Service on the air to keeping the Royal Navy’s fleet in the ocean; from rescuing survivors to transporting workers, our business is based on delivering what we say we’ll deliver. Our reputation for exceeding expectations has seen our order book grow to £13.5bn and our service offering expand into the US, the Middle East, Australia, South Africa and Brazil, to name only a few.
Epic projects need a lot of people. We’re 28,000-strong, and can offer clients a depth and breadth of expertise that’s hard to equal anywhere in the world. Together we deliver complex, critical support, ensuring vital assets are always working as they should. We build, we manage, we operate, we train and we maintain. And because we do, people around the world are safer, warmer, better connected, and better served.
The 5% Club
The 5% Club supports hiring more apprentices and graduates into the UK workforce. It’s made up of public and private sector organisations who want to make the UK more competitive globally and to give young people the best opportunities. And we’re proud to call ourselves a member.
Armed Forces Commitment
Babcock is committed to honouring the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant and supporting the Armed Forces community. Whether it’s serving personnel (regular or reservists), veterans or military families, we want to recognise the contribution they make to our business and country. That’s why we’re an armed-forces friendly employer and always proud to show our support.
We take diversity seriously. We firmly believe that a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture is an essential part of a healthy and progressive business, and so is something we actively encourage. We’re corporate members of WISE (Women into Science and Engineering) and have fine-tuned our recruitment process so that everyone is judged on their merits and nothing else
We’ve got a world-class graduate programme and have over 120 vacancies on our Engineering and Science programmes and over 40 on our Business Management programmes.
Tackling some of the most exciting projects out there, our Engineering and Science graduates work in everything from electrical and electronic engineering to naval architecture. The graduates on our Business Management programmes tackle the same incredible range of epic projects as our Engineering and Science graduates, providing operational management or core services ranging from accountancy to bid management to IT.
For most programmes we look for a 2:2 accredited degree in a relevant subject. This will form the basis of your ongoing professional development, often resulting in Incorporated or Chartered status.
We’re based at over 200 sites all over the UK. Where you’ll be based depends on which part of the business you join us in, but we ask that all our graduates be flexible and willing to move during their programme. In return, you can look forward to a minimum starting salary of £25,000 and the kind of proper, real-world experience that careers are built on.
