What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
I have had the opportunity to try 8 different job roles over a period of 2 years. Each one I have found rewarding, some more than others but all of them have helped build a picture of what is important to me and what I am good at. I have come out of the graduate scheme certain of what I want to do with a broad skill set demonstrated by my breadth of experience and success in the business.
The thing I dislike most about the job is a factor of me not understanding what Babcock Marine did well enough at the time when I applied. It is about the industry they are in and how closely what I am working for relates to what I believe is most important for society, rather than what I am doing day to day - which I really like. So I would encourage applicants to understand themselves and understand the company they are applying for, their clients and their client's purposes. If you are happy with that and happy with the job, a good career will likely follow.

What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Make sure that you understand what the company does, who they work with and if that interests you, which sector you want to work in.
Do you have any interview tips?
Bring an understanding of the experience you have from university or placements related to UK spec engineering competencies, this will help you answer any experience or technical question given.
Understand your strengths and your flaws, think of examples of successes and failures and more importantly how you have learned from both, prove that you have learned from both.
