What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Know which sector of Babcock you want to apply to - changing is possible but it can be difficult depending on your circumstances.
Do you have any interview tips?
The assessment centre for Cavendish Nuclear is two days long so do not try to put on an act or front as you will not be able to maintain it.
Engineering interviews are competency based, and tend to focus on discussions around past projects and learning experiences.
