Role Type: Full time / Permanent
Role ID: SF50399

At Babcock we're working to create a safe and secure world, together, and if you join us, you can play your part as an Engineering Technician at our Devonport Royal Dockyard site.

The role
As a Engineering Technician, you'll have a role that's out of the ordinary. The development of the Babcock T23 Refit Support Group (RSG) team is an exciting opportunity for engineering technicians to maintain and repair a wide range of equipment and systems in a dynamic and varied environment.

Day to day, you'll work on vessels, maintaining electrical and mechanical systems, so they're fit for service. It involves regenerating systems and equipment to full operational condition so they're ready for tests and trials. It's a great opportunity to develop new skills while working with stakeholders and keeping them up to speed.

This role is full-time, 36 hours per week and based onsite at Devonport Royal Dockyard.

Essential experience of the Engineering Technician:

  • Ability to write clear defect reports and keep maintenance management systems up to date.
  • Good engineering and professional standards.
  • Agile and adaptable, with a proactive attitude.
  • Experience as an RN engineering technician or seaman would be an advantage. However, this is not essential, as long as you have a background in electrical, mechanical or seamanship equipment and system maintenance and repair.

Qualifications for the Engineering Technician:

  • Qualified electrical or mechanical technician.
  • City and Guilds level 3 in a relevant discipline or equivalent experience.

The successful candidate must be able to achieve SC security clearance level for this role.

Our Benefits

  • Generous holiday allowance
  • Matched contribution pension scheme up to 8% of salary, with life assurance
  • Employee share scheme
  • Employee shopping savings portal
  • Payment of Professional Fees
  • Reservists in the armed forces receive 10-days special paid leave
  • Holiday Trading is a benefit that allows the majority of employees to buy additional leave or to sell up to one working week of annual leave from their annual entitlement
  • 'Be Kind Day' enables employees to take one working day's paid leave a year (or equivalent hours) to undertake volunteering work with their chosen organisation or registered charity
