IT/IM Graduate Programme

Job description

We’re based at over 279 sites across the UK – and many more around the world. That means we have a major infrastructure to maintain and keep secure. On this two-year programme, based on both business needs and your individual interests, you’ll gain insight into all our Security, Cyber Defence and Information Assurance teams in addition to our core activities including service delivery, project management, IT procurement, strategic development, technical applications (including SharePoint), ERP systems, and software and asset management.

Where you can join us

Places on our IT/IM graduate programme for Autumn 2019 are available within our central Information Services function. 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

We’ve got sizeable projects brewing at the moment, so it’s a 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 on the scale we do it is no easy task. So a senior manager will take you under their wing and help you navigate the challenges and develop your professional skills. You’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary of £28k - £30k* – plus on-the-job training that’s hard to beat.

*Depending on location, role and qualifications.

What we are looking for
