Information Services Graduate
About the programme
Our Information Services graduates are based in Lakeside near Portsmouth. However, as you may need to travel to any one of our UK Babcock sites, you need to be ready and willing to move throughout your programme.
On this two-year programme, you’ll gain insight into all our core activities, including IT platform, Portfolio and Project management, Security, Core application, Architecture, Design & BE, Information eXploitation and Innovation, Business and Engineering Solution, and Development services.
Whatever you want to specialise in, we can tailor your placements to maximise the time you spend with the relevant team. You’ll also work with a range of teams throughout IT and get opportunities to rotate around our teams. This means that you’ll be able to take what you’ve learnt in your degree and put it into action.
