About the programme

We have over 35,000 people working for Babcock International Group. That’s enough to fill a town. And like a town, we need our own communications, infrastructure and support. That’s where Human Resources comes in. On this two-year programme, you’ll learn how we support and make the most of our most important asset.

Human Resources at Babcock

This is a wide-ranging programme. You’ll learn about everything from resourcing and talent management, organisation development, employment law and employee relations, to bid and contract support, and project management. You’ll see how we work closely with the business to create the strategies that find and retain the best people and develop the skills our business needs. Project by project, you’ll learn how to support different disciplines in different parts of our business.

What you'll need

  • 2:2 (Hons) degree in Business Management, Law, Psychology or another relevant subject
  • To be able to satisfy the MoD’s security requirements (you may need to complete a medical assessment)
  • Our work spans across a number of UK and international contracts, so multilingual skills and a willingness to undertake international placements are hugely valuable to us – please highlight these within your CV and application form

Your career development
