Through a combination of on-the-job experience and continual development, we offer a unique learning ground for graduates to help us bring our projects to life.

Quantity Surveying at Babcock

Delivering projects of the scale we work on, against strict requirements, is an exact science. You’ll experience this first-hand. You’ll help to develop plans for key valuation activities, preparing costing and valuation proposals, reviewing technical specifications, and responding to tenders and quotations. All the time making sure that we comply with industry regulations and statutory health, safety and environmental requirements.

What you'll need

  • 2:2 degree in Quantity Surveying or Construction Management. A RICS-accredited degree is desirable
  • You’ll need to be highly motivated, with good communication and time management skills
  • To be able to satisfy the MoD’s security requirements (you may need to complete a medical assessment)

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.
