Babcock Mentoring Scheme
Babcock and the careers service are entering their 3rd year of collaboration with the Babcock mentoring programme. There are 40 places available for students undertaking courses within the Plymouth Business School, the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics, the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the School of Psychology.
Babcock is a leading provider of critical complex engineering services across four key sectors: marine, nuclear, land and aviation. Participants will benefit from one-to-one mentoring sessions, peer support drop-ins, a Babcock led insight day and a mock assessment centre.
Have you thought of working with Babcock and wondered how to gain those skills? Perhaps you are considering a career change? Maybe you want to find out more – this programme is for you! Gain an insight into Babcock, see how they run, learn from your mentor and see where your degree can take you – you will be surprised!

Find out more at our information sessions

You can find out more at our drop-in sessions every Monday 2–4pm (excluding bank holidays) in The Hub, located just inside the Library.

Mentoring: helping to launch careers

"Mentoring is a great opportunity to engage with employees and hear their experiences and advice for employment in the engineering sector. Thanks to my mentor's help with my CV and interview skills, this summer I have managed to get some work experience with an engineering firm."
