Company Profile - Babcock International Group Plc


From Scotland to south-west England, we have graduate opportunities right across the UK.

How to define what we do? In short, we’re a leading engineering support services company, providing vital behind-the-scenes support for many major governmental and nationally regulated activities. But that hardly hints at the sheer scale of it.

Operating across the
UK and around the world, we keep jets in the air and ships and submarines seaworthy. We keep the country’s rail network on-track, help to deliver the power to your doorstep, keep your mobile phone connected and when you fly, help ensure your baggage flies with you.

In fact, there’s hardly a part of everyday life in which we’re not involved. So wherever your technical or business talents lie, we can offer you the breadth of opportunity, professional training and practical experience to make the most of them.

There are some 17,000 of us, working across the seven divisions of the company. Together we offer an environment for career development and specialisation in which talented people need never stop learning and growing. Every year, each division recruits a select number of graduates who will become our next generation of technical and business professionals.
