About the programme

When it comes to safety, we insist on the highest standards – everywhere. Especially in our radiological projects at Devonport Royal Dockyard, Plymouth. Over the course of two years, you’ll move from team to team, learning how we protect our people and the environment while we work on critical challenges.

Health Physics at Babcock

Any kind of nuclear engineering is complex, but when you’re working on the newest class of submarines in the MoD’s fleet, you’re faced with new challenges every day. As part of a team of people with lots of different skills, you’ll make sure that the site’s safety arrangements are always up to scratch.

What you'll need

  • 2:2 BSc (Hons) degree in a Science subject
  • Any kind of postgraduate qualification in this area, such as an MSc or PG (Dip) in Radiological Protection, would be very useful
  • To be able to satisfy the MoD’s security requirements (you may need to complete a medical assessment)

What you'll get

When you’re part of the team at Babcock, we think it’s only right that you’re properly rewarded for the contribution you make and the hard work you put in. That’s why, in addition to a highly competitive salary, you can look forward to generous pension and employee share schemes, and a whole host of other flexible benefits. These include things like access to our healthcare cash plan, Wellbeing Centre and discounts on everything from gym membership and travel to retail, dining and entertainment. 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.

Your career development

We are now partnering with an award-winning training and development provider to deliver a cutting-edge, technology-focused graduate development programme that can be tailored to your individual needs and career aspirations.

Here, that means matching your passions to your skills and supporting you as you progress towards full membership of the Society for Radiological Protection and then Chartered status as a Radiation Protection Professional (CRadP).

Next year, we are also looking to introduce a fast-track graduate programme for outstanding performers and those with the potential to become future leaders within the business.
