When it comes to safety, we insist on the highest standards – everywhere. Especially in our radiological projects at Devonport Royal Dockyard, Plymouth and Rosyth Royal Dockyard, Fife. Over the course of two years, you’ll move from team to team, learning how we protect our people and the environment while we work on epic projects.

WHERE YOU CAN JOIN US

See the list below to find out more about the areas of our business that are offering places on our Health Physics programme for autumn 2017. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.  

We are no longer accepting applications for our 2017 intake for this programme. Please take a look around the site to find out more about our graduate programmes and what it’s like to work at Babcock. If you are interested in joining our autumn 2017 intake, keep an eye out early September 2017 when our applications will re-open. 

MARINE AND TECHNOLOGY – PLYMOUTHLearn more and apply

We’re a strategic partner to the MOD and the Royal Navy, helping to improve efficiency at Devonport Royal Dockyard in Plymouth. Our unique facilities and infrastructure mean that we can undertake 100% of submarine refits, as well as around 75% of UK surface fleet refits and 50% of fleet maintenance work. Half of the Royal Navy surface fleet is base-ported in Devonport, including Type 23 frigates, the Amphibious Assault fleet, and their hydrographic vessels. That’s the kind of epic engineering projects we take care of. To get involved in them, you’ll need to have a technical grounding in your relevant field, along with the ability to think on your feet and challenge yourself. And because we love to help promote STEM subjects amongst kids, it would be great if you were up for getting involved with our work in local schools.  

 

OUR LOCATIONS

The majority of graduates are based in Devonport (Plymouth) with a small number based in our Bristol and Keynsham offices.

 

WE WORK ON A ROLLING APPLICATION BASIS AND THIS ROLE IS NOW CLOSED WHILST WE REASSESS DEMAND AND CURRENT APPLICATIONS. IF REQUIRED, WE WILL REOPEN, SO PLEASE CHECK BACK ON A REGULAR BASIS.

MARINE AND TECHNOLOGY - ROSYTHLearn more and apply

Rosyth might be the most unique of our sites within Marine and Technology. Nearly all our teams have a foothold here, so the range of work is huge. Right now, projects within the oil and gas, renewables and commercial marine sectors are making use of our unique mix of engineering, design and manufacturing skills. In the past year alone, we started work on the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm – a 400 Megawatt (MW) project being built by energy company E.ON, alongside partners in the UK Green Investment Bank plc. It will include 116 turbines, with the nearest located 13km from shore.   Alongside these commercial projects, we also take on some warship support work and took care of over 50% of the detailed design for the UK’s new aircraft carriers, the largest and most powerful ships ever built for the Royal Navy. It’s epic stuff. Which is why we look for real team players with the right attitude and technical skills to get involved in projects like these. In return, you’ll get experience in five incredible sectors (naval and commercial marine, renewables, oil and gas, liquid gas equipment, and civil nuclear) and enjoy the support of a dedicated graduate management team.

 

OUR LOCATIONS

Your home base will be Rosyth, but your placements may also be in Edinburgh, Tyneside, Bristol, HM Naval Base Clyde or Devonport (Plymouth).

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

Any kind of nuclear engineering is complex, but when you’re working on the newest class of submarines in the MOD’s fleet, you’re faced with new challenges every day. As part of a team of people with lots of different skills, you’ll make sure that the site’s safety arrangements are always up to scratch. 

WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT

We’ll match your passions to your skills to help you build a long-term career, starting with a competitive starting salary of £27,000 - £30,000 as you’re doing it. We’ll help you progress towards full membership of the Society for Radiological Protection and then chartered status as a Radiation Protection Professional (CRadP). And once you have that, a lot of doors will be open to you. 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

You’ll need a 2:2 BSc (Hons) degree in a science subject. Any kind of postgraduate qualification in this area, such as an MSc or PG(Dip) in Radiological Protection, would be very useful too. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
