Human Resources is a big deal at Babcock. We have over 35,000 people with all types of expertise, working in every kind of environment, all around the world. That’s enough to fill a town. And like a town, it needs its own communications, infrastructure and support. That’s what Human Resources provide. And on this two-year programme, you’ll learn how they provide it.
Where you can join us
See the list below to find out more about the areas of our business that are offering places on our Human Resources programme for autumn 2016. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.
What you'll be doing
Human Resources is a big field. You’ll learn about everything from recruitment and selection, employment law and employee relations to bids, management information and project management. You’ll see how we work closely with the business to create the strategies that find and retain the best people and develop the skills our business needs. Project by project, your skills will develop and your understanding of how to support different disciplines in different parts of our business will grow. In the end, you’ll have a big picture understanding of one of the UK’s biggest businesses.
What you'll get out of it
Once you have sight of the big picture, you’ll have a much better idea of what you want to do with your career. We can help you figure that out and provide you with all the support you need to achieve professional status, such as with the CIPD. And while you work towards that, you’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary of £27,000 - £30,000.
What you'll need
You’ll need a 2:2 (Hons) degree in Business Management, Law or another relevant subject. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment) and have a full, clean UK driving licence.
Applications for this programme are currently open. To avoid disappointment we recommend that you apply sooner rather than later as we work on a rolling basis and where we experience large volumes of applications, we will close the role early.
