The team shared the company’s plans to contribute to the development of industry modules to meet the current and growing requirements of modern shipbuilding and to benefit programmes in the UK, Poland and beyond.

Babcock continues to grow its capability and presence in Poland, where its investing in customer relationships and future talent by supporting the development of a skilled, local workforce to deliver activity in Poland.

Initially, two Graduate Engineers will be recruited in Poland to start in September this year. Over two years, the graduates will complete four placements across a variety of roles within the Miecznik programme and other operations in Poland and the UK. The first cohort will also have the opportunity to work alongside UK graduates, whilst learning about the Polish business and growing the company's capabilities in country and supporting customers.

The graduate scheme follows the introduction of our new international apprentice exchange programme in Poland. Apprentices from Rosyth recently visited PGZ-SW shipyard in Gdynia to share their knowledge whilst experiencing new and different ways of working. Similarly, student workers from PGZ-SW visited Babcock’s Rosyth facility.

Paul Armstrong Chief Executive, Marine - Babcock said: “Building on Babcock’s Skills Academy, launched last year these initiatives form part of our wider workforce development plans, which includes working with local education establishments and training providers to recruit talented people to our business and give them varied and exciting careers.

“Babcock is pleased to bring its extensive experience of Graduate Schemes delivered over many years in the UK across a variety of disciplines and multiple domains to Poland. Our work in designing, building, integrating, and supporting ship programmes across the globe is delivering opportunities just like this to develop the next generation of skilled employees for our industry.”
