Electrical and electronic engineering is everywhere. From fitting out advanced warship systems to designing cutting-edge augmented reality products, we provide our customers with better capability, reliability and availability of their critical assets. You’ll spend between two to four years getting involved in anything from defence engineering to complex nuclear projects.
Cavendish Nuclear is the UK’s leading nuclear services company, with ambitious plans for growth at home and abroad. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Babcock International Group, delivering complex projects across the nuclear lifecycle. Our work includes supporting delivery of new build nuclear power plants, extending the working-life of existing nuclear plants and safely decommissioning legacy sites. Whether on our own, or with one of our partners, we apply our proven experience and trusted expertise to deliver complex nuclear programmes safer, faster, at lower cost. We’re looking for graduates with a wide range of qualities, including high technical skills, good interpersonal skills and a willingness to learn and adapt to new circumstances.
You could be based in a number of locations, so you will need to be ready and willing to move throughout your programme. You’ll probably call Warrington, Bristol, Leicester or Newbury home, but you could also work from client sites (including nuclear power stations, or Sellafield in Cumbria and Dounreay in Scotland).
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
Working in a discipline of such fundamental importance means that you could work on anything. You could be on the team designing submarines, refitting warships, or helping to build the UK’s next generation of nuclear power plants. The possibilities are endless.
Day-to-day, you could find yourself working on electrical power distribution or electrical control and instrumentation, involving both analogue and digital systems. Our graduates get involved in everything from concept design and AutoCAD layouts to testing, installation, commissioning and handover to clients. You’ll be working within multidisciplinary teams, investigating solutions to engineering problems. You may also find yourself managing projects and leading your own team.
WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT
This is a great programme to give you a full overview of what we’re about. You’ll see how important the projects we work on are and how important electrical and electronic engineers like you are to our projects. You’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary of £29k - £31k and we’ll be completely behind you as you work towards Incorporated or Chartered Engineer status.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
A 2:2 BEng (Hons) degree in a related subject area (e.g. Electrical and Electronic Engineering) that is accredited by IET is desirable. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment). For our Marine – Plymouth and Bristol programmes we also accept relevant degrees in Systems, Computing or IT disciplines.
Babcock International Group is a global engineering services organisation with a proven track record of excellence. Operating in the UK and overseas, we are trusted to deliver complex support to the defence, energy, emergency services, transport and education sectors.
