Do you have a desire to make a difference in the world?

Are you ready to be part of a world-leading, inspiring and ambitious team? We’re making some exciting changes to our company brands and uniting SNC-Lavalin, AtkinsRéalis, and Faithful+Gould to become AtkinsRéalis. Aligned to this we’re introducing a brand new look.

This is a journey, and it will take time to evolve, so for early careers you will still see us as AtkinsRéalis for the time being. Please be reassured that this doesn’t impact any of the roles you apply for – we’re still us, just better.

AtkinsRéalis, operating under AtkinsRéalis is a leading global consultancy with over 80 years of design, engineering and project management expertise. With us, you’ll join a team that asks questions and dares to see things differently while engineering a better future for our planet and its people.

Join our Apprenticeship Programme to be a part of the future of design and engineering.

While you develop in your apprenticeship, we also encourage you to maintain a positive work-life balance. So, during our recruitment process, tell us what matters to you. Speak to us about how we support wellbeing in and out of the office – including different ways to be flexible around work. We’re not all the same, and that’s our greatest strength. Reaching your full potential means being able to bring your whole self to work and being respected for the different opinions, strengths and experience you bring. Find out more about why we believe ‘Different, makes a difference’.
