What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
With the placements, you effectively get a new job every 3-6 months.
Variety of work you can get involved in - there is no hard cut off point when leaving the scheme so you can do as little or as many placements as you want (within reason).
Job security - you are guaranteed a job at the end of the scheme.
Training offered - both job related (e.g. professional qualifications) to soft skills focusing on personal development (I have found this very useful and I am very happy that it is part of the scheme).
The placements mean that sometimes you will find an area of the business that you enjoy but have to leave to go on another placement (you can always go back to your favourite place after the scheme in you full-time, non- graduate, job).
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £27,000 - £29,000
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?
Research the company and more importantly research the business unit you are applying to. The "Babcockgraduates.com" webpage will list the site that you are applying for - make sure you research that site and not just the company in general as we are so varied that it will be hard to retain all the information. Research any qualifications that the job ad says you will gain as part of the graduate scheme. If possible, you could also reach out to people via LinkedIn - it shows initiative and enthusiasm for the role!
Do you have any interview tips?
The interview will likely be in a similar format to speed dating - around 8 "mini interviews" 5-10 minutes long each time. The topics will vary from your background and experience to why you want to the role and what industry knowledge you have (you can prepare with this by keeping an eye on the news/MoD webpages).
