Taking up roles across its Marine, Nuclear, Land and Aviation sectors, the new colleagues will be located in various operating locations including Rosyth Dockyard and Her Majesty’s Naval Base Clyde – both in Scotland – the Babcock Technology Centre in Bristol, RAF Leeming in North Yorkshire, and Devonport Royal Dockyard in Plymouth.
The apprentices and graduates will work across several specialized areas including technology and innovation, business management, project management, science, fabrication and engineering in its many traditional disciplines and some new ones too.
Becoming a qualified aircraft engineer
Having just left the Royal Air Force, Catherine Lollis, a working single mother, was at a crossroads in her life, until she made the leap and enrolled to study for an HNC in Aeronautical Engineering. From there she took the opportunity to join Babcock’s apprenticeship scheme at RAF Leeming.
Lollis said: “After almost two years on the Babcock scheme, I am on the verge of becoming a qualified aircraft engineer. The apprenticeship course has been ideal for me. I’ve progressed my aim of becoming an aircraft engineer with some fantastic support.”
