  3. Testing: If you’re shortlisted, you’ll be asked to complete a range of ability tests.
  4. Interview: We’ll invite you for an interview if you pass the tests successfully.
  5. Teamwork assessment: Teamwork is crucial at Babcock, so you’ll have a team-based assessment to see how you get on with your peers.
