Job description

When you join Atkins in the UK you’ll become part of a team of people who are creating a better future for us all. Our design, project management and engineering specialists are involved in some of the UK’s most transformational projects, from helping clients switch to more sustainable energy sources through to assessing and mitigating the risk of flooding to protect our communities.

Our people are experts in a wide range of sectors including aerospace, defence, education, energy, environment, information communications, transportation and water. We have a proud history in these sectors and an outstanding track record of success. But it’s the future we’re really excited about.

We’re facing some unprecedented challenges in our work and we’re drawing on the talents of our worldwide team of experts to provide innovative solutions for our clients in the public, private and regulated sectors. We’re always on the lookout for people who share our passion for problem solving. We offer competitive salaries and flexible benefits as well as professional development and training opportunities.

You don’t have to go far to find the perfect role. Our people are hard at work in over 40 offices across the UK. Search our current vacancies to find out where a career with us could take you.

If you're currently at university, spending time on a placement or internship with us will help you get a better understanding of the areas that inspire you the most. You’ll be able to develop your technical skills and gain valuable experience to add to your CV. You’ll also be making important contacts in the industry and if you do well and like what we do, you’ll be able to fast track through part of the graduate recruitment process later on. In fact, this would be the ideal starting point for a graduate career with us.

Our paid undergraduate opportunities include:

  • Summer placements – for students who are currently studying at university. Internships are available for all degree years, but please check job descriptions for individual business requirements. Our summer internships generally last 8-12 weeks.
  • Industrial tear placements – these are longer placements for students and count towards your university degree. They are typically between 8 and 12 months long.

Join us for an opportunity to work alongside our technical, innovative, industry experts.
