Where you'll be based

Our Information Services graduates are based in Lakeside near Portsmouth. However, as you may need to travel to any one of over 249 UK Babcock sites, you need to be ready and willing to move throughout your programme.

Whatever you want to specialise in, from machine learning to software development, we can tailor your placements to maximise the time you spend with the relevant team in our Portsmouth office.

You’ll also work with a range of teams throughout IT, including opportunities to rotate through our Sector teams in other offices. This means that you’ll be able to take what you’ve learnt in your degree and put it into action.
