I am an Army Reservist Royal Logistics Corps (RLC) Driver (Private)

My role means I am trained to drive several different types of equipment from Land Rovers to tanks – and I can get a formal qualification for it. As well as driving them, I also get to learn how to service and maintain them. Babcock has given me paid leave to conduct my Army Reserve training. They have also been flexible with when I take my time off as the army courses are usually only confirmed at short notice.

My day job is...
Design Engineer. Typically, I spend most of my day at my work station, however, the level and variety of work ensures I am kept busy and interested. Babcock is also a fun working environment! I am currently producing 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) models and 2D manufacturing drawings. Each day for me is different depending on the design, calculations and documentation of the task I’m
working on. My favourite part of the job is being able to take a design concept through to a set of manufacturing drawings and supporting documentation. Seeing the task through the full lifecycle is really rewarding.
