WHERE YOU CAN JOIN US
MARINE – PLYMOUTHLearn more and apply
Babcock is a leading provider of critical, complex engineering services across defence, emergency services and civil nuclear markets in the UK and more widely across the globe.
Our business in Plymouth is a key strategic partner to our customers; the MOD and the Royal Navy. We ensure that the UK Royal Navy goes to sea safely by supporting them in Devonport and around the world, delivering complex ship and submarine sustainment programmes and applying our core strengths of technology and expertise to sustain critical and complex assets to help maintain national security.
To make the most of the opportunities Babcock has to offer, you’ll need to have great technical skills, along with the drive and aspiration to develop your career. Our graduates will have the opportunity to use and apply their knowledge and skills, gained from either engineering or business degrees, to help us deliver our world-class programmes, develop new technologies and offer innovative solutions for our customers.
Your development programme will have a strong focus on undertaking a number of different placements which will be agreed in line with evolving business requirements and provide you with a high level of on-the-job training. You will also be given the fantastic opportunity to network and share your experiences through our modular two-year graduate development programme. Through these experiences you will understand the pivotal role you will play in our future success, how we function as an organisation, the importance of our customers and the wider business environment in which we operate.
Depending on your programme your home base could be Devonport Royal Dockyard, Plymouth. However, some of your placements may be at other Marine sector locations. As many of our programmes are available at more than one location you will have the opportunity, at the end of the online application form, to select a second and/or third choice location that you would want your application to be considered for.
UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THIS ROLE BUT IF WE DO NOT MEET OUR REQUIRED QUOTA WE WILL REOPEN THE ROLE SO PLEASE CHECK BACK ON A REGULAR BASIS.
WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING
The business is very diverse and therefore requires analytical services and scientific knowledge covering a greater scope than that of many potential employers.
You will become part of an enthusiastic and diverse team, building relationships with and supporting our civilian and naval customers at all levels.
WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT
Over the course of two years you will gain experience in a large number of classic and instrumental techniques in our UKAS accredited Chemistry and Radio Chemistry laboratories, on board vessels and at customers’ premises.
We’ll develop your scientific and people skills to help you build a long-term career, starting with a competitive salary of £29k - £31k. You will find that no two days will be the same on this varied programme.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
You’ll need a 2:2 BSc (Hons) degree in a science subject and a passion to support the customer and your peers. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
