Diversity & Inclusion

We believe that making the most of our differences is key to the success of our business. And strive to treat everyone at Babcock equally, both during the recruitment process and throughout their working life. We assess candidates purely on merit, regardless of their age, gender, race, religious beliefs or background. And promote an environment that fosters dignity and respect for all.

Women in Engineering

At Babcock, we’re committed to closing the gender gap across our organisation. And that’s not just about ensuring equal work is rewarded with equal pay, or recruiting more women into STEM roles. It’s about creating an environment, with facilities and role models that inspire and support women; offering access to a wider range of flexible working options; and empowering every individual to flourish and shape their own future as a leader or technical specialist within the business.

Social mobility

A core part of our drive towards greater inclusivity is focused on attracting candidates from different socioeconomic backgrounds. We want to support those who are less socially mobile to get in and get on at Babcock.

We adopt open recruitment practices which promote a level playing field for people from all backgrounds and circumstance. It is no coincidence that we actively recruit from universities with the highest representation of those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.

Driven by


From advanced data analytics and asset digitisation to cutting-edge engineering and manufacturing techniques, technology and innovation has a crucial role to play in every aspect of our work. So wherever you join us and in whatever role, you’ll be working with that technology, developing the skills you need to take our clients, our business and your own career forward.

Commited to


Sustainability is at the heart of our business. We are committed to minimising the impact of our operations on the environment, focusing on the safety of our people and making a positive difference to the communities in which we operate. That commitment extends to being a member of the Sustainability Alliance, a collaborative group of key organisations that work with Defra to promote, share and implement sustainability best practice.

Our new Group-wide Environment, Social and Governance strategy has a profound influence on everything we do. As we work to reduce the impact of our recruitment marketing and selection processes, this is something you’ll experience as a graduate before you even join us! And when you do, you’ll have a part to play in it too. You could help to reduce our own energy consumption, engage with suppliers with commercial integrity or build closer relationships with the community.
