About the programme

We ensure our clients’ systems remain reliable, work well when their partner systems change and run effectively without any problems. Over two to four years, you could get involved in everything from decommissioning and waste management through to plant operations, safeguards and land characterisation.

Systems Engineering at Babcock

When you’re anticipating what might happen as a system develops, you need to look at the big picture and zoom in on the tiny details. And when you’re dealing with complex systems such as submarines or nuclear instrumentation, that’s quite an undertaking. You’ll work alongside experienced design, software, mechanical and electrical engineering teams as well as with physicists and managers, applying your systems thinking and understanding of the interaction and interfaces between electrical, mechanical, nuclear processes and structural engineering systems. You’ll develop critical instruments from initial requirements through to design, testing and commissioning. Along the way, you may help specify the test and commissioning processes for new and modified designs to support the Navy’s most critical ships and submarines.

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).

What you'll get

We will provide you with a supportive and engaging environment where you can grow your career.

In addition:

  • Minimum 25 days holiday entitlements + bank holidays + agile working* subject to conversation with your Manager
  • Generous pension and employee share schemes
  • Flexible benefits, including cycle to work scheme, discounts
  • Employee assistance programme supporting physical, mental and financial wellbeing
  • You’ll also have the chance to get involved in our STEM outreach and volunteering activities, which our graduates find incredibly rewarding in all sorts of other ways.

Where you'll be based

See the list below to find out more about the areas of our business that are offering places on our Systems 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.

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.

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.

Our business in Plymouth supports the UK Royal Navy in Devonport and around the world, delivering complex ship and submarine sustainment programmes and sustaining critical and complex assets to help maintain national security.

Depending on your programme, your home base could be Devonport Royal Dockyard, Plymouth. However, some of your placements may be at other Nuclear sector locations.
