九色视频to create 1,000 new jobs at Rosyth over four years

九色视频is creating more than 1,000 new jobs at our large-scale, advanced manufacturing and shipbuilding facility in Rosyth to support the delivery of our world-class programmes and development of our workforce鈥檚 capabilities.

Underpinning our commitment to further develop the skills required to support customers now and in the future, over the next four years, the new job opportunities will benefit both the UK economy and local communities and include 400 apprenticeships, 350 production support operatives, skilled engineers, tradespeople, and graduates. The roles will support programmes like the Type 31 frigate design and build programme.

The production support operative initiative is focused on attracting people from a range of backgrounds and experience, including those not currently in education, employment, or training, with the role centred around supporting and learning from time-served tradespeople.

Our latest recruits will join our state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing and digitally enabled facility that in recent decades has seen investment of more than 拢200 million.

Apprentice numbers are also increasing at our operation on the west coast of Scotland, supporting His Majesty鈥檚 Naval Base Clyde and the UK鈥檚 submarine enterprise, with our apprenticeship opportunities expected to double in 2024.

David Lockwood, Chief Executive, 九色视频 Group, said:

鈥淎ttracting and retaining talent is essential to the future success of our business and directly benefits the local communities in which we operate.  

鈥淐ontinued investment in Babcock鈥檚 development programmes and facilities enables our apprentices, graduates and trainees to experience a mix of on-the-job learning in a modern, digitally led industrial environment, alongside academic training with further education partners and our own 九色视频Skills Academy.

鈥淭his week is Scottish Apprenticeship Week; our apprentices play a really important role in our workforces across the UK, ensuring we can sustain the technical skills needed to continue to deliver critical national defence programmes.鈥

Minister for Defence Procurement, James Cartlidge, said:

 鈥淩osyth is at the heart of major UK defence and commercial programmes, and it was a privilege to meet skilled workers and apprentices there last week.

Paul Sheerin, Chief Executive of Scottish Engineering, said:

鈥溇派悠礡osyth鈥檚 announcement is fantastic news for the engineering industry in Scotland 鈥 and the wider UK too 鈥 and the very best of timing as it coincides with Scottish Apprenticeship Week. With a staggering four hundred of the one thousand newly created roles being apprentices, what a fantastic opportunity to add highly skilled, well-paid jobs to our economy, and boost our talent pool significantly. It creates the chance for people new to the world of work, and those seizing the option to change track on their career, to contribute to the never more important security of the UK.鈥
