Commercial Graduate Programme

Job description

From the latest submarines and supercarriers, to the UK’s first new nuclear power plant in over 20 years, we’ve secured some of the most extraordinary engineering projects. On this exciting programme you’ll continue that trend and you could be providing commercial support to elements of multimillion-pound bids or existing contracts, or working with our business development teams to identify new opportunities within Babcock.

Where you can join us

Places on our Commercial graduate programme for Autumn 2019 are available within our Aviation and Land sectors. 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.

What you'll be doing

Your placements could take you to any part of our business. You might be managing elements of multimillion-pound bids, supporting commercial contracts, or spotting new opportunities in our Aviation and Land sectors. And once you have a handle on what we’re about and how we do things, you’ll specialise in an area that suits your strengths and ambitions.

What you'll get out of it

It’s a really exciting time to do business in the UK. So many markets are seeing really interesting and profitable work being done. And on this programme, you’ll get a chance to experience some of them. Along the way, you’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary of £28k - £30k and our full support in getting accredited with a professional body.

*Depending on location, role and qualifications.

What we are looking for

  • You’ll need to satisfy the Ministry of Defence’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).

In addition to the requirements, in our Aviation sector the graduate programme spans across a number of UK and International contracts, therefore, multi-language skills and International experience are hugely valuable to us. Alongside our UK based graduates, we are actively looking for candidates that are flexible and willing to undertake international placements and use their existing language skills to add value to our sector. Being able to work with and amongst different cultures and backgrounds is vitally important within our organisation, so please ensure that any language or International experience is highlighted within your CV and application form.


You’ll need a 2:2 (Hons) degree in business, economics, law or another relevant subject.
