What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The scope of work available within Babcock and the ability to work on some of the largest, most complex engineering projects in the UK. The scope of the company and the available roles allows for everyone to find their niche during the course of the graduate scheme.
Additionally, there is an excellent starting salary and scope for progression and a variety of working locations across the UK.
The necessary downside of the graduate scheme and 3-4 month placements results in an inability to feel settled within a team.
Not as many perks as other companies (health care, discounts etc).
Relatively limited scope for international travel (only Oman currently offered).
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £29,000 - £31,000
Current salary: £29,000 - £31,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Really highlight previous engineering experience if available and apply to the competency questions you may be asked in the application. STEM activities are also looked upon highly, as is involvement with engineering professional bodies (IMechE, IET etc.)
Do you have any interview tips?
Typically a 2 day assessment centre, with the first day consisting of a company tour of HMNB Devonport and the work currently on-going, before an assessment day consisting of an interview, presentation and team activities.
