Employee Profiles

Babcock Australasia


Caleb Spray, Commercial Graduate:

Meet Caleb Spray, Commercial Graduate at Babcock Australasia.

As a Commercial Graduate, Caleb works on a range of tasks that assist Babcock’s Aviation and Critical Services team. From contract management, to client reporting and communications, to business development and bid research, Caleb is constantly learning and kept on his toes.

“No two days are identical and I love the diversity among the projects I’ve been involved with. I’ve been very fortunate to work in a team with people who are always willing to share their knowledge, and who I now consider to be good friends, as well as colleagues,” Caleb says.

“At Babcock I have also been provided with opportunities for professional development through completing industry-specific courses for capture management and proposal writing.”

Caleb studied a Bachelor of Business (Advanced Leadership and Marketing) at Flinders University in South Australia, and upon graduating was passionate about pursuing a career within aviation.

“Coming out of university I endeavoured to find a role within an industry that was of interest to me. When I heard about the Commercial Graduate role offered by Babcock, I became excited about the prospect of working with an organisation that provides aviation services,” Caleb says.

“Aviation has long been an area of great curiosity to me, so the decision to apply for the role was easy. Coupled with the fact Babcock facilitates a service which is of critical importance to communities across Australia, I’ve found a role that I am passionate about and take great pride in.”

Babcock’s work within Aviation and Critical Services involves emergency medical services (EMS), search and rescue (SAR) operations, and airborne surveillance. Assisting with aviation activities, Caleb finds this work motivating and rewarding.

“Babcock’s work contributes to a service that provides critical assistance, lifesaving operations, and emergency services to communities across the nation,” Caleb says.

“Babcock’s work within Aviation and Critical Services, the global footprint of the company, and its contribution to the aviation, marine and land sectors means that career diversification and development opportunities are in abundance.”

“There is no other company quite like Babcock in Australia and New Zealand, that operates across all of the same specialised industries as we do.”

Looking ahead, Caleb is excited for his career at Babcock growing into a role where he can pass on his commercial knowledge to others.

“Coming into an organisation that operates in a complex space, there were always going to be certain gaps in my industry specific knowledge. However, those with greater experience are always willing to aid my professional development through teaching me. I hope that one day I can pass on the knowledge to others,” Caleb says.

“Chasing your dream job is a daunting task. My advice to anyone is to focus on your skill set, study hard and find something you are passionate about.”

“I would recommend a career with Babcock to anyone; it’s an exciting, innovative and agile organisation doing great things across Australia and New Zealand.”


Jayden Grigg, Graduate Engineer:

Nothing stands in the way of success for Jayden Grigg – Graduate Engineer at Babcock Australasia. With a longstanding passion for working within the defence industry, and years of hard work under his belt, Jayden is thriving within his dream career.

As a Graduate Engineer, Jayden has surveyed assets to assist with product design and created fabrication drawings for products. He has also listed accompanying materials needed for fabrication and provided assistance to other engineering team members when electrical or electronic expertise is required.

“No two days are the same in my role – one day I am writing reports and formatting documentation for the Australian Defence Force (ADF), and the next day I am testing the compliance of a device or determining how hot a radiator pipe will get,” Jayden describes.

“Engineering involves a high level of reading comprehension, detail discrimination, mathematics and focus, all in that order. A critical part of my role involves understanding the standards and then showing mathematically that we meet those standards, as well as managing stakeholders, including the ADF and manufacturing industry.”

“Project management skills are also required to ensure outcomes are validated, verified and delivered on-time.”

Jayden has always had strong family ties to the defence industry, with his parents having served within the ADF. Combining this passion with his love for mathematics, problem-solving, and making a difference, Jayden pursued a career in engineering at university.

“I was set on joining the Defence Force, specifically the Navy as it was where I saw that I could provide the greatest value. Because of this I studied the various ranks, assets and locations of the ADF. This general knowledge of Defence serves me well in my current role at Babcock,” Jayden says.

“Additionally, I completed a Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics) (Honours) at Flinders University and finished at the end of 2019.”

Whilst completing his final year of university, Jayden undertook a six month exchange with multidisciplinary engineering school and research centre, ENSTA Bretagne, in Brest, France. That same year in France, Jayden completed an internship with Thales, where he worked on the Autonomous Surface Vessel program, among various other projects.

“My project at Thales was specifically to create a small drone that would be able to operate in the open ocean autonomously for one year. This drone would operate through the use of a basic Artificial Intelligence (AI) that controlled the various systems of the drone,” Jayden explains.

“By using basic AI, we were able to specify the direction of the drone via the navigation subsystem and using the sensors and propellers on-board. My role was mainly firmware, but I was also involved in the creation of the AI and the mission management tool.”

Jayden is proud of his achievements, and says the investment Babcock puts into its staff will allow his success to continue.

“Here at Babcock I love the camaraderie and personal investment. Babcock is big on the development of engineering skills, even after education. I am encouraged to continue my engineering development, to the point where Babcock is willing to provide me with training external to the company,” Jayden says.

“I am being provided opportunities, both in and out of projects, to take the raw skills that I learned in university and to forge them into accurate and precise tools that make me an engineering force to be reckoned with.”

“The challenges I have seen my manager face and the engineering prowess I have seen him demonstrate leaves me excited about building my engineering career with Babcock.”

Jayden’s advice for budding engineers and those chasing a career dream within the defence industry revolves around tackling your fears and stepping outside of your comfort zone.

“The problems and challenges in the Defence Industry are similar to those you will face in other industries, but the difference is that every system is absolutely mission critical every time,” Jayden says.

“This gives me a love for my job, where I can impose the beauty of mathematics on a difficult problem and see my solution become reality.”

A Day in the Life

Babcock Australasia


Imogen

Imogen Larcombe, Graduate Engineer

“I’ve always been a practical person and enjoy problem-solving, so I loved maths and physics at school. I had an inspiring teacher at high school, who encouraged me in specialist maths – I was one of only two girls who studied it.

“My degree is in Mechatronics and Computer Science. That’s come in very useful in my work here at Babcock, especially in a project we’re working on for our Defence customer.

“I’ve been with Babcock Australasia since the start of 2021 and in that time I’ve enjoyed learning about the industry and customer requirements.

“It’s been good to gain the end-user perspective, and see how my work can be applied in real-life situations.

“I recently took on the challenge of creating a data analytics tool that integrates multiple data points to produce an easy to use dashboard.

“From my own experience, it can be daunting to be in a course with mostly male students, but it helps that the female students support each other. Having a mentor is a great advantage, as they can boost your confidence and be a sounding board for ideas.

“My engineering hero is Michelle Simmons, who is a leader in the field of quantum physics and renowned internationally as a pioneer in atomic electronics. Her work inspires me to keep learning as much as I can, and be part of building the future.”

Environment, Social and Governance (ESG)

Babcock Australasia


Sustainability is at the heart of our business, and is a key part of our planning, our operational delivery and our approach to through-life support.

We are committed to minimising the impact of our operations on the environment, focusing on the safety of our people and ensuring a positive impact in the communities in which we operate. Our approach to Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) is how we aim to deliver sustainably.

Environment

Incorporating sustainability into our everyday operations is key to ensure successful, long-term delivery outcomes and we have a responsibility to leave a positive impact on our environment.

We use innovative solutions to reduce our energy needs, while focusing on cleaner energy and other natural resources. We recognise that working sustainably makes strategic business sense. Group-wide activities support increasing local focus on managing clean inputs and also drive this agenda through activities that directly support our customers’ needs.

We take our responsibility for managing the impact of our operations and those of our supply chain on the environment seriously. We integrate environmental sustainability into our programme design, optimise use of resources and minimise waste through re-use and recycling.

Social

We rely on the support and collaboration of local communities, small businesses and our people where we live and work to continue delivering critical support to customers for whom failure is not an option.

Our partnership with the communities in which we operate is at the core of Babcock’s business. We play an active part in our local communities to enhance development and inspire the next generation.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees is of paramount importance, as is the need to continually invest in them to ensure that we have the right people in place now and in years to come. We are also committed to providing a fair, equal and inclusive environment for all of our people.

At Babcock we believe diversity is about embracing the advantages people with different experiences, skills and outlooks can bring to our teams. We encourage a diverse and inclusive employee base where each person feels respected and able to fill their potential.

Governance

Babcock has always been and will always be committed to doing business honestly and openly. We hold our leaders to account for ensuring their businesses operate according to the standards we expect.

Our Code of Business Conduct lays out our policy of strict ethical conduct, highlighting the fundamental importance of conducting all business activities to the highest standards of honesty and integrity.

We believe that ethical behaviour underpins our sustainability activities. We establish robust processes and controls to identify opportunities and manage corporate risks. We understand that our reputation and good name are amongst our greatest assets, which could easily be lost by actual or suspected unethical behaviour.

We partner with our supply chains to identify innovative solutions and ensure timely delivery of quality products and services. External expenditure via third party suppliers, including Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), accounts for approximately 50% of our turnover and our approach and ability to manage these relationships impacts our ability to deliver performance and margin.
