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 Software Engineering programme for Autumn 2020. 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.
MARINE – BRISTOL OR LEICESTERLearn more and apply
Our Defence Systems Technology (DST) business, based out of Bristol, forms a critical part of Babcock’s Marine organisation. Working across a range of exciting design, manufacture and support projects, our 1,500 strong team operate from a number of sites across the UK and internationally ensuring our global customer portfolio is always supported.
To make the most of the opportunities Marine 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 their knowledge from either their engineering or business degrees to help us deliver our world-class programmes, develop new technologies and offer end-to-end solutions for our vast range of 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 knowledge-share your experiences through our modular two-year Marine sector graduate development programme. Through these experiences you will come to understand the pivotal role you will play in our future success, how we function as an organisation, our internal culture, the importance of our customers and the wider business environment.
Your home base will be Bristol or Leicester, but 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
As part of a multidisciplinary team, you’ll need to look at the big picture and understand how the software interacts with the system and its interfaces. You could be working on a huge variety of different projects. You could focus on something as small as an audio console for a communications project. Or you could work on something as large as a handling system on a world-class ship. Whatever you work on, you’ll be closely involved in the design, specification and testing of software and associated systems.
WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT
The range of work you’ll cover will help you figure out where you excel. And once you know that, we’ll help you go as far as you can. We’ll support you as you work to become an Incorporated or Chartered Engineer and give you a competitive starting salary of £29k - £31k.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
This programme is accredited by the IET and IMechE, so you’ll need a 2:1 BEng (Hons) degree – and an accredited degree by one of those institutions is desirable. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
