Project Management programme
We need bright minds to nurture our people, look after our technology,
secure new business and so much more. On each of these programmes,
you’ll tackle the same range of amazing projects as our engineering and
science graduates – but you’ll focus on our crucial operational challenges.
Our programmes include:
We have all sorts of projects underway at any one time, from design
and manufacture, to in-service support and capability enhancement.
Join us in Project Management, and you’ll identify and manage risk,
meet stakeholder requirements and ensure everything is delivered
on time, and on budget. It’s an opportunity to stretch your skills on
varied work that will give you fantastic exposure to our business.

Docking is a major milestone for any warship that is undergoing
maintenance and in 2020, as part of its regeneration, HMS
Bulwark successfully docked down at our Devonport site.
Having completed phase one of its Optimised Support Period, docking
the 176m, 19,560 ton amphibious assault ship marked the beginning
of phase two, which will see Babcock undertake some substantial
engineering works including the complete overhaul of approximately
7,500 cubic tonnes of water ballast tanks, which are used to ballast the
ship down for amphibious operations, and the introduction of further
capability upgrades ahead of delivering the vessel back to the Royal Navy.
The project, which includes approximately 100 engineers and 300 highly
skilled technicians from Babcock, is different to a usual overhaul with
the team pioneering an alternative approach to HMS Bulwark’s planned
upkeep period by adopting a collaborative enterprise, alongside with
Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) and the Royal Navy, to further
enhance the material state of the vessel.
