Our Aspirations Are Our Possibilities

 

At Babcock, we’re creating a safe and secure world, together – and you can play your part. 

 

The Future Maritime Support Programme (FMSP) is the UK MoD’s new contracting framework designed to replace the Maritime Support Delivery Framework (MSDF) and Submarine Deep Maintenance Period (DMP) contracts.  It will sustain over 9,400 jobs in the UK ensuring ongoing industrial support of the Royal Navy’s capabilities, including new aircraft carriers, surface combatants and submarines as well as the infrastructure at the Naval Bases at Devonport and on the Clyde.  

 

It is an ambitious programme designed to improve vessel availability, increase resilience of the maritime defence supply chain and ensure certainty of delivery, while also seeking substantial reductions in total support costs.  Babcock must achieve all of these outcomes against a backdrop of increasingly complex commercial and regulatory requirements.  

For Procurement and Supply Chain (P&SC), these increased complexities have created challenges in ensuring the function can deliver an effective and efficient value-adding service to the wider Babcock organisation and ultimately the UK MoD that remains compliant with all necessary requirements.  

 

As a result, the supply chain function has embarked on an exciting, customer backed transformation programme which is designed to modernise our function and deliver the required transformation and associated benefits committed to our customer under FMSP.

 

We are looking for candidates who believe they could make a difference and are keen to shape the future. The roles will require the candidates to manage stakeholders, analyse data to provide actionable insights and have skills in both project management and change management.

 

These roles will help safeguard Babcock’s commercial interests, manage critical supply chain risks and support enhancements in functional competency and capability.  In doing so, the individual will support effective assurance, control and governance of FMSP delivery and promote continuous improvement in the value offering of P&SC to Babcock and the end customer.
