We redefine epic every day at Babcock. Epic is the scope and scale; the nuts and bolts; and the bread and butter of our business. We’re the UK’s leading engineering support services organisation – a FTSE 100 company with revenue of circa £4.8bn in 2016 and an order book and pipeline of over £30bn. We work on projects that intrigue, engage and inspire our people, day in, day out. Epic is in everything we do – from nuclear, defence, energy, oil and gas, and education to rail, mining, construction, marine, technology and air travel. Basically, we work on all the complex, critical, cool ‘stuff’.

We play a significant role in building aircraft carriers with 60-Wimbledon-tennis-court-size flight decks. We maintain vehicle fleets that make the equivalent of over 130 journeys to the moon and back every year. We provide technical training to all three Armed Forces. We decommission major nuclear licensed sites. We ensure the availability of defence and civil fleets of all kinds. Our reputation for exceeding expectations has seen our service offering expand across five continents and we’re still growing. Whatever the project, our business is based on trust and proven by delivery.

Delivering these epic projects takes a cast of thousands. Our global team is circa 35,000-strong, offering clients a depth and breadth of expertise that makes us unique in our industry. We design, we build, we manage, we operate, we train, we maintain and we decommission. And because we do, some of the world’s biggest companies and governments are able to continue providing vital services that the world relies on every day.


Whether you want to be an engineer, a project manager, or a physicist, we’ve got a world-class graduate programme for you. Tackling some of the most exciting projects out there, our engineering and science graduates work in everything from electrical and electronic engineering to naval architecture.

We’re passionate about learning. And we encourage our people to pursue accreditation with professional bodies – especially our engineers. Depending on the programme, we’ll support you to achieve Incorporated or Chartered Engineer status. We’ll also give you a competitive starting salary of £27,000 - £30,000.


For the majority of our engineering and science programmes, you’ll need a 2:2 degree in a related subject. As most of our programmes are accredited by institutions such as IMechE, IET, RINA, IChemE, IMarEST and ICE, your degree will also need to be accredited in order for you to be eligible for the programme. You’ll also need to satisfy the Ministry of Defence’s (MOD’s) security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).

Applications for this programme are currently open.  To avoid disappointment we recommend that you apply sooner rather than later as we work on a rolling basis and where we experience large volumes of applications, we will close the role early.
