South East + 8

AECOM is built to deliver a better world. We design, build, finance and operate infrastructure assets for governments, businesses and organizations in more than 150 countries. As a fully integrated firm, we connect knowledge and experience across our global network of experts to help clients solve their most complex challenges. From high-performance buildings and infrastructure, to resilient communities and environments, to stable and secure nations, our work is transformative, differentiated and vital.

We have a number of exciting opportunities across the UK and Ireland (UK&I) for graduates to work within our Traffic Engineering & Consulting Teams. This team, one of the largest dedicated Traffic Engineering Teams in the UK&I, is focused on developing engineering measures to achieve a safe and efficient movement and interaction of pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles on our roads. We focus mainly on developing and appraising practical solutions which require consideration of traffic flows, road geometry, cycle facilities, traffic signs, pavement engineering, traffic signals and intelligent transport systems. We strive to achieve the optimum use of the available space which is often constrained, especially in urban areas. Our main aim is to create Streets that are more pleasant and safe to use by our local communities.

Our Traffic Engineering Teams work throughout the UK&I and are involved in a wide range of projects from concept and preliminary design, traffic modelling, through to detailed design and implementation, with graduates gaining experience in all stages of a project lifecycle. We often work alongside other construction professionals, such as urban designers, in multi-disciplinary teams to create great urban spaces. Overall we deliver sustainable cost effective solutions to our clients, whether they are local or national authorities. Work is often fast paced and requires creativity, tenacity and excellent communication to achieve the right result for our clients whilst respecting the requirements of wider stakeholders and maintaining the highest industry standards.

Recent projects include the award winning Cycle Superhighways in London, design of a new Manchester Metrolink extension to Trafford Park, the design of the Oxford Street Pedestrianisation, the design of the Melton Mowbray Bypass, the creation of innovative multimodal corridors in Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Dublin to name but a few.

When a graduate starts with us we pair them with an experienced engineer who will guide and mentor them through their initial period working on live projects. Training is arranged on our software engineering tools such as Autocad/Civils3D and when, where required, traffic modelling software including LINSIG, TRANSYT and VISSIM to ensure all our engineers have a full set of design skills.

Early work with us will typically be assisting in developing our designs through the different stages, attending meetings and workshops with our clients and other design professionals. As a graduate develops they are expected to take on more responsibility in managing our projects from inception through to completion.

Candidates will use industry leading computer software and BIM modelling programmes while working on a variety of different projects including:

  • Road & Street design
  • Cycle lane design
  • Bus Priority and BRT Design
  • Streetscape improvement projects
  • Traffic management planning and design
  • Traffic signal design
  • Traffic signage design
  • Traffic modelling (micro-simulation)

Our Traffic Engineering graduates will also have opportunities to work on major highways projects as both Traffic Engineering and Highway Graduates work together and will rotate between projects so as a broad range of training will be provided to all our Roads Graduates.
