We’re based at over 300 sites across the UK – and many more around the world. That’s a lot of technology and information. Our size and diversity means that you’ll get a look into every nook and cranny of IT over the two years of the programme. Which we reckon makes this one of the best starts anyone could get to their IT career.
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 IT/IM 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.
INFORMATION SERVICESLearn more and apply
When you’re working on an epic scale, everything gets big. Especially IT. Our platform is used by more than 17,000 employees in offices around the world, so Information Services is one of the most important business areas within Babcock. We provide the IT support all our teams need – wherever they are and in whatever part of our business they work. All with a level of security that comes with working with clients like the MOD. That’s why we’re so big on training. We train our graduates up on everything from Information Technology Infrastructure Libraries (ITILs) to the proper way to handle purchasing and supply chains, so that we can continue to supply world-class technology to the business. And right now we’re implementing a global ERP platform and integrating several new international offices, so we have lots and lots of exciting work for enthusiastic, tech-savvy graduates to get stuck into.
Our Information Services graduates are currently based in Botley, Southampton but will relocate to Lakeside near Portsmouth by December 2016. However, as you’ll also have to travel to any one of over 300 UK Babcock sites, you need to be ready and willing to move throughout your programme.
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.
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
We’ve got a few new sizeable projects brewing at the moment, so it’s a particularly good time to join us. You’ll get a taste of all our core activities, including service delivery, project management, IT procurement, security, strategic development, ERP systems, and software and asset management. Along the way, you’ll partner up with a lot of different teams within Babcock and learn from them as you go.
WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT
IT is a big one for us. So a senior manager will take you under their wing and help you navigate challenges and develop professional skills. Along the way, you’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary of £27,000 - £30,000 and on-the-job training you just can’t beat.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
We’re looking for a 2:2 (Hons) degree in Information Technology and Business with IT. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
