What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
Real responsibility given in the first few months to make a real impact on the business. I find this to be a very satisfying aspect of work and the knowledge that my chartered engineer status is progressing and that mentorship is provided to nurture the process.
Babcock is a well established company, many things have been in place for a very long time and since Babcock is so large, some sectors and business units are in need of a little updating and modernisation. Some of these include hardware, software, infrastructure and processes but since Babcock is broken down into sectors and further into business units, they all operate independently, and don't necessarily show and standardisation across the group.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £27,000 - £29,000
Current salary: £27,000 - £29,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Competition is very high, applications need to have strong academics and show that you are a well rounded individual who is capable of adapting to multiple situations. A strong CV. Processing time is long, and application spaces fill up very quickly. The first stage after sending the application is a phone interview and the next is an assessment centre.
Do you have any interview tips?
Have good examples of how you dealt with certain situations from your experiences so far, these should showcase abilities such as leadership, adaptability etc.
You will also be asked to prepare a short presentation and you should rehearse this thoroughly.
Expand upon the questions that have been asked; the interview process isn't strict, it's freeform with a few guideline prompt questions, so you can steer it to your favour.
The guideline prompt sheet follows like any other competency based questionnaire, where the interviewee gives examples and recalls situations that display desirable skills.
