What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
On the graduate programme, there is an immense amount of support given to start your career and to keep it on track for good progression and networking. Graduates are also held in high regard for their work as it is taken seriously and implemented, making an impact within the business and contracts. A project that I drafted, presented and implemented gave me a real sense of job satisfaction and the credibility that came with it is very uplifting.
The graduate cohort is still relatively small in numbers compared to the rest of the employee demographic. This is a pro in terms of dedicated support but as Babcock is spread over the whole of the UK, and also Europe for international business, a sense of camaraderie could be difficult to build as graduates are very dispersed, and offices tend not to have more than one or two graduates. This is however, decreasing as a con, as intake grows each year and there is a notable percentage of ex-graduates in Babcock's management roles.

What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Submit an application as early as possible and keep your CV brushed up, they are an important factor for selection through the stages. A strong CV would include relevant experience and skills that an Aviation business would want e.g. placements in industry, hobbies in Aviation, skills to demonstrate competence with keen interest and strong ability to learn.
Do you have any interview tips?
Research about the Aviation industry and the challenges that are current, the more aware you are at the time of the interview, the more you will be able to impress the interviewer. Also relax and be yourself; at the end of the day, the question the interviewer is trying to answer is "Can I envisage this applicant working with us?" and being able to show composure and confidence could be the difference.
