About us

Babcock is a global engineering services organisation with 35,000 people behind us. As the biggest company of our kind in the UK, Babcock is trusted to deliver support across the Marine, Land, Aviation and Nuclear sectors. And with £30bn of business in the pipelines, we’re set to stay busy.

Our work is incredibly diverse. Police forces turn to us to convert commercial vehicles into high-performance response cars and vans. We helped design the UK’s biggest aircraft carriers. And you can find us in Dounreay, where we oversee Europe’s largest nuclear site clean-up and closure project. At the heart of everything we do are our values: trust, respect, safety, simplifying the complex and challenging ourselves to do better.

These projects take all different kinds of professionals, from chartered engineers and project managers, to naval architects, data analysts and everything in between. To bring through the next generation of engineering and business experts, we offer apprenticeships and roles for students, graduates and fully-qualified professionals.

There’s never been a better time to join us. Whether you’re looking for a new business management project or engineering role, join Babcock and grow with us.

Miserable place to work

Rated 1 out of 5

This place has destroyed my mental health, it’s very much if your face fits – but if you play golf you’ll go far!

It’s not the workplace it was when the mod had the yard..Babcock have ruined it.

Slow paced workshop

Rated 3 out of 5

Very slow paced work. Management/work planning need improvement. Work/home life balance couldn’t be any better. Just need to take life a bit slower when you arrive for work.

I would work there again

Nice team

Rated 4 out of 5

Good place to work. I worked within the commercial team. However , coming from a finance background, I don’t think the job was for me. It suited someone that had a legal background particularly for the contract management side of the job.

A fine company with great benefits

Rated 4 out of 5

A major, industry leader with great benefits and job security. Advancement is certainly possible and the technology and training on site is always improving.

Poor company, low salaries, bad organisational culture

Rated 1 out of 5

Unsupportive and unfair management. Your face has to fit in to be treated fairly. No training whatsoever unless you “know” or are related to some important managers in the company, so favouritism is the answer.

No provision if you have a long term condition , total disregard for pregnancy and maternity rights. No gender equity, this is a “men’s world”.


Job stability if you do not care for pay increase or career progression


Low salary, toxic environment, unsupportive management
