I like that Doosan Babcock's Graduate Training Programme offers me the chance to see various aspects of the business, provides a structured development plan tailored to my personal goals, develops brilliant future career prospects, and gives me the chance to go on site visits and possibly overseas placements.
During my time on the graduate programme, I have gained a wide range of skills and experiences and a greater understanding of the company's business units.
I have been involved in developing an offshore wind turbine, non-destructive life extension services of nuclear power plants, destructive testing of subsea and oil and gas and aeronautical components.
Along with the variety of hands-on experience, I also attend formal and informal training.
ECITB's Supervisory Management Training and Development (SMTD) course: a recognised management qualification.
Strathclyde University’s Power Plant Engineering course: a six-module course resulting in a postgraduate certificate.
Doosan Babcock supports me when I want to attend any courses, seminars or conferences - both internally and externally - to be more aware of current issues and new technologies.
I'm working towards obtaining chartership status with the IMechE, and these experiences are vital to my professional development and progression.
My time at Doosan Babcock has been highly enjoyable and challenging, I have been given plenty of opportunities to further my own development and contribute to the company.
I would highly recommend Doosan Babcock‘s graduate training programme to graduates who would like to pursue a career in the power generation sector.
