A record 69 graduates begin at Babcock

Babcock Australasia has welcomed a record 69 graduates this year as the company continues to expand in the region and support young people to enter the nation’s critical Defence industry.

Commencing this month, the new cohort will have the opportunity to work on Babcock contracts including supporting Collins Class submarines, High Frequency Communications and sustainment of the Royal Australian Navy’s fleet.

The 69 graduates, based in Adelaide (34), Perth (11), Sydney (3), Melbourne (1) and New Zealand (20), will gain first-hand experience across several areas including engineering, project management, environment, procurement and supply chain.

Babcock Australasia Executive Director People & Safety Sue Whitford said: “Babcock is proud to support our young people entering the nation’s Defence industry.

“This year’s record graduate cohort reiterates Babcock is a growing Defence company in the region and we remain committed to supporting the next generation gain opportunities in industry.

“Babcock’s Graduate Program supports our best and brightest young people develop technical and leadership skills while allowing them to gain fantastic career opportunities through personal development and networking opportunities.

“I encourage anyone considering a career in Defence to get in touch – the sky is the limit with fantastic job opportunities at Babcock Australasia. In turn, you’ll be supporting us with our mission of creating a safe and secure world, together.”

Project Management Graduate Jasmine Parkin-Eadie, 24, started at Babcock in February.

“I was attracted to working at Babcock because the company has multiple departments and projects, so I knew the work would be interesting and ever-changing,” she said.

“Babcock’s great culture, values and flexibility highlighted to me that the company really cares about their employees and gives me confidence that a job here can be a long-term career.”

Graduate Mechanical Engineer Samuel Rowe, 23, said he was attracted to work at Babcock due to the company’s focus on early careers.

“Babcock showed a genuine interest in my career goals and interests. With a large array of ongoing projects, the door is always open for growth and learning opportunities,” he said.

Babcock’s Graduate Program forms part of the company’s Early Careers offering, which includes annual opportunities for apprentices, trainees and interns.
