About the programme

Over the course of this two year programme, you will learn that sustainability management is a wide and varied topic that covers People, Community, Supply Chain, Waste and Energy (to touch on a few examples).

Babcock has structured its working groups, into three categories, Environmental, Social and Governance. This graduate programme focuses on the Environmental side, looking at Biodiversity, Energy, Waste and Water. Your work here will have a real impact on shaping and delivering the sustainability strategy for Babcock.

Sustainability at Babcock

Sustainability is an integral part of our business. We think and act for the long-term, and we are a trusted partner to our customers.

The possibilities on this programme are many and varied. You might be helping to look at new technologies that deliver modern and innovative facilities and infrastructure, reviewing how we can improve the quality life for our employees through ecosystem development, or developing through life sustainability models.

We do a lot of work for the Ministry of Defence (MOD), which alone offers a range of opportunities. You might even work with the Royal Navy to adapt the UK’s dockyard service offering to meet the demands of a modern naval fleet.

Whatever you work on, you can be sure you will be making a real difference to everyday life in the UK.
