Type of opportunity:
The members of our teams often say that there is no typical day in the life of the Procurement and Supply Chain professional. We touch every kind of project and so the work is very varied. Whatever you find yourself doing, it will be challenging and will make a difference – supporting the business and servicing our customers. Whether designing, building, operating, managing, or maintaining vital assets, one thing is certain – procurement and supply chain management lies at the heart of our operations and plays a pivotal role in our business success. Working as an integral part of our business, to optimise our demand planning, sourcing, supplier relationships and effective inventory management is key to Babcock’s ability to deliver to our customers. We are also proud to have been externally recognised by Procurement Leaders for the ‘2017 Procurement Employer’ Award.
This placement will provide a great opportunity to join our Procurement and Supply Chain team and learn about the key functions of the Supply Chain process. You’ll work on projects across our organisation, developing a deep understanding of the diverse businesses whilst building a well-rounded skill-set for the years to come.
You’ll need to be studying for an undergraduate degree and have a demonstrable interest in procurement or supply chain. Naturally, you’ll be ambitious and a self-starter who enjoys the challenges of a fast-paced and complex environment. You’ll need good interpersonal skills, the ability to drive change and results, and a clear potential for inspiring others. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
