About the programme

Many of the systems that we create are driven by our own high-performance software. From harsh environments to complex architectures and strict information assurance, our software needs to be proven, reliable and fully integrated. This programme will teach you how to achieve this for everything from a desktop application to a measurement system on a nuclear power plant.

Software Engineering at Babcock

As part of a multi-disciplinary team, you’ll need to look at the big picture and understand how the software interacts with the system and its interfaces. You could be working on a huge variety of different projects. You could focus on something as small as an audio console for a communications project. Or you could work on something as large as a handling system on a world-class ship. Whatever you work on, you may  be closely involved in the design, specification, implantation  and testing of software and associated systems.

What you'll need

  • A BEng/BSc (Hons) degree, ideally accredited by the IET and IMechE
  • To be able to satisfy our customer’s security requirements (you may need to complete a medical assessment).

In addition:

  • Minimum 25 days holiday entitlements + bank holidays + agile working* subject to conversation with your Manager
  • Generous pension and employee share schemes

Where you'll be based

See below to find out more about the areas of our business that are offering places on our Software Engineering programme for Autumn 2023. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.

Our Marine – Defence business, based in Bristol, forms a critical part of Babcock’s Marine organisation. Working across a range of exciting design, manufacture and support projects, our 1,500 strong team operate from a number of sites across the UK and internationally ensuring our global customer portfolio is always supported.

Your home base will be Bristol, but some of your placements may be at other Marine sector locations.

You’ll be based in our radiometric instrument laboratories at Sellafield in Cumbria for the four years of your programme. In that time, you’ll design, implement, test, and maintain instrumentation software and supporting applications that measures all types of radiation for our clients’ sites around the world. This will provide experience of the full development lifecycle within a small team and develop an understanding of how this part of our business contributes to our success.
