We redefine epic every day at Babcock. Epic is the scope and scale; the nuts and bolts; and the bread and butter of our business. We’re the UK’s leading engineering support services organisation – a FTSE 100 company with revenue of circa £4.8bn in 2016 and an order book and pipeline of over £30bn. We work on projects that intrigue, engage and inspire our people, day in, day out. Epic is in everything we do – from nuclear, defence, energy, oil and gas, and education to rail, mining, construction, marine, technology and air travel. Basically, we work on all the complex, critical cool 'stuff'.

We help build aircraft carriers with 60-Wimbledon-tennis-court-size flight decks. We maintain vehicle fleets that make the equivalent of over 130 journeys to the moon and back every year. We provide technical training to all three Armed Forces. We decommission major nuclear licensed sites. We ensure the availability of defence and civil fleets of all kinds. Our reputation for exceeding expectations has seen our service offering expand across five continents and we’re still growing. Whatever the project, our business is based on trust and proven by delivery.


Delivering these epic projects takes a cast of thousands; 35,000 dedicated professionals bringing a staggering depth and breadth of expertise. Our global team is circa 35,000-strong, offering clients a depth and breadth of expertise that makes us unique in our industry. We design, we build, we manage, we operate, we train, we maintain and we decommission. And because we do, some of the world’s biggest companies and governments are able to continue providing vital services the world relies on every day.

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.


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 are corporate members of WISE (Women into Science and Engineering) and OUTstanding (a not-for-profit professional network for LGBT executives and their allies).

Our recruitment process is designed to ensure that everyone is selected on their merits and nothing else.
