Geomatics & Geospatial Graduate Scheme 2019 - Aerospace, Defence, Security & Technology

Joining SNC- Lavalin Atkins on our Aerospace, Defence, Security and Technology (ADS&T) Division will mean you that you are able to work with teams across mission critical industries, to contribute to the security and resilience of the nation, or to exploit advanced technology to help clients to not only meet, but embrace these exciting times. They work with leading names to transform the future of aerospace engineering and create lighter, quieter and more fuel-efficient aircrafts. The security team is trusted by organisations to help them understand the threats they are facing and develop the strategies to counter them.

At SNC- Lavalin Atkins we offer a world of opportunities from the projects you’ll work on to the directions you can take your career. Whilst our continuous mentoring, on the job learning and training will help you achieve professional registration and develop industry skills that are highly sought after.

What you’ll be doing

The Atkins Geospatial team provide a range of services covering the full lifecycle of location based information from data acquisition, processing and spatial analysis to information and data management. Our drive is to deliver innovative, quality solutions to our clients which enables them to use data to make well informed decisions in a user friendly and intuitive environment. Our success lies in our integration across the Atkins businesses, and our hunger to push geospatial solutions ever forward.

The role of a GIS Graduate is an exciting and rewarding opportunity to gain experience in implementing GI solutions across multiple disciplines and throughout all parts of a project’s life cycle. You could be involved in:

  • Projects where we are advising and guiding internal and external clients on the best approach to take for a wide range of GI aspects from basic constraints mapping for our environment team.
  • 3D visualisation of a new pipeline route and creating view shed maps for planning applications on small projects to large infrastructure projects.
  • Supporting other Atkins work on large multi-disciplinary projects.

We believe in getting our graduates working on projects from the moment they join (but after they have attended ESRI and FME training) so expect to be busy. Equal to our desire for excellent geospatial solutions is the aim for all employees to have the right work-life balance, you will work hard whilst in the office and leave on time - when away from client deadlines.

What you’ll be doing

The role of a Geomatics Graduate is an exciting and rewarding opportunity to gain experience in implementing survey solutions across disciplines. You will be involved in:

  • Projects where we are advising internal and external clients on the best approach to take.
  • Delivering surveys for a wide range of data capture requirements.
  • Large aerial surveys of existing or for new infrastructure, UAV surveys, smaller as-built surveys for BIM modelling.
  • Tasks could include: measuring photo control, laser scanning, post processing of aerial, UAV and laser scanning datasets, production and QA of deliverables including basic CAD outputs, orthophoto, ground models, 3D meshes, BIM models and visualisations.
  • Data creation, collection and validation.
  • Information management.
  • Spatial analyses.
  • GIS web map creation and management.
  • Map production.

There is an increasing overlap between Geomatics and the wider Geospatial team of which we are part, meaning there will be opportunities to work in a GIS environment and software. Collaboration is the key in Atkins and this means that you might be required to visit our Bangalore GIS team, spend time in the Middle East or work with our new Atkins North America business in the United States.

In order to be exposed to wider opportunities and gain a broader outlook of our work, you will be positively encouraged to work on a range of projects and in a variety of roles over the first three-year period.
