About the programme

Getting things to happen how they should, when they should, and within budget is both a science and an art. On this programme you’ll learn exactly how it’s done. The programme lasts two to four years (depending on local business needs) and will empower you to meet the Association for Project Management (APM) framework and work towards project management chartership. Over the course of the programme you will be developed through placements on real projects, assignments, formal qualifications, and you will receive mentoring from some of the top project professionals in the engineering sector.

Project Management at Babcock

Expect to work on every kind of project across our organisation – from design and manufacture, to in-service support and capability enhancement projects. Whatever the task at hand, risks need to be identified and managed, stakeholder requirements satisfied, and the whole thing delivered on time and to budget. Along the way, you’ll develop strong relationships with colleagues in commercial, financial and procurement functions. That’s because watching our finances is as important as watching the clock when delivering a project. With that professional network behind you, you’ll have everything you need to tackle anything that comes your way.

What you'll need

  • 2:1 Bachelor’s or Master’s degree
  • 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 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 training based on the Association for Project Management’s (APM) development framework. Combine this with the experience you’ll gain working alongside the best project managers in the industry and you’ll be ready for your Project Management Qualification (PMQ).

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.
