About Babcock

Babcock is a leading engineering services organisation. Operating in the UK and internationally, we are trusted to deliver vital services to the defence, emergency services and civil nuclear sectors.

For more than a century, we have been committed to world class engineering. It’s the essence of our company, and we have an enviable reputation for supporting our customers in complex, critical and highly regulated environments. To do what we do takes the talents of thousands: over 35,000 professionals from every kind of discipline imaginable. Expert engineers, skilled scientists, bright business minds and everyone in between.

Together, we help defence forces protect countries and communities, we help emergency services providers save lives and we help the power industry keep the lights on. We are the biggest company of our kind in the UK with around £31bn of business in the order book and pipeline.

So whether you want to be an engineer, a commercial manager or a safety specialist, we’ve got a world-class graduate programme for you.

We have opportunities for graduates from nearly every degree subject. For most programmes we look for a 2:2 degree in a relevant subject. This will form the basis of your ongoing professional development. For engineers, this results in an Incorporated or Chartered status, and relevant qualifications for our Business Management programmes.

Babcock has over 279 sites in the UK. Where you’re based depends on which team you join, but we ask that all our graduates are flexible and willing to move during their programme. In return, you can look forward to a competitive starting salary of between £28k and £30k and the kind of proper, real-world experience that careers are built on.

Your career journey with us starts here. Just select the sector that excites you most and find the programme that’s right for you.
