Graduate Programme - Site and Facilities

Job description

As a Site and Facilities Project Management graduate, you will be part of the team responsible for the delivery of all projects within the Site and Facilities portfolio. Site and Facilities covers a variety of areas including buildings and services, nuclear boundary maintenance and energy management. These projects vary in size and complexity and this will aid your development by allowing you to build up your skills and experience gradually throughout the lifecycle of the projects. These projects are critical to not only keeping the site to an acceptable maintained level, but also supporting product build and delivery.

You will take responsibility for ensuring that we deliver on our customer commitments at the right time, at the right cost and to the best possible quality. Your work will give you the breadth of experience to succeed and tasks could include controlling budgets and expenditure, covering the governance of change within projects, resourcing, fulfilling contractual requirements or interfacing with our customers. You’ll also review performance, analyse risks and take decisions to optimise project success.

What you will be doing: (Role duties and responsibilities)

  • Support and coordination of Site and Facilities projects aligning to Site and Facilities preferred methodology
  • Take responsibility for key work streams on a variety of different projects
  • Engage with stakeholders within the wider BAE Systems Submarines business, as well as externally with consultants/contractors
  • Development of project definitions and support the development of project plans
  • Gather data, update project plans and generate project progress reports to support review meetings
  • Undertake financial reporting and financial controls in line with current business requirements
  • Identify, expedite and support the resolution of problems to respond to risks, issues and deviations on the project

Overview of business unit
All roles within Maritime - Submarines are restricted to British citizens who do not hold dual nationality.

Unfortunately, if you do not meet these criteria it will not be possible to take your application any further. This does not, however, exclude you from working for other parts of the BAE Systems organisation and further information regarding potential roles can be found here.

Our Submarines business has been safely delivering world class submarines to the UK Royal Navy for more than a century.

Today we are the prime contractor in the Astute programme and the UK’s only designer and builder of nuclear powered submarines – one of the world’s most complex engineering challenges.

We are also the industrial lead for the Dreadnought programme, the Royal Navy’s next generation of nuclear deterrent submarines. Construction of the first of four submarines, named Dreadnought, began last year.

Our Submarines business employs approximately 8,700 people and in 2017 we spent around £700m with over 700 suppliers.

The graduate starting date for this location is January 2020.
