Atkins Graduate Scheme
« on: January 13, 2013, 05:37:12 PM »

Atkins is one of the world’s leading engineering and design consultancies providing unique and rewarding career opportunities for talented candidates.

The majority of Atkins graduate programmes commence in September and are advertised from January so that suitable candidates are recruited well in advance. Graduate programmes on offer include:

- Architects
- Structural Engineers
- Manufacturing Engineers
- Mechanical Engineers
- Electrical Engineers
- Civil Engineers

These could be offered within the UK, or there are International Graduate Programmes and Summer Placements, although you do not need to be bilingual.

Atkins also offer invaluable work experience for graduates during the summer holidays in the form of Summer Placements in a range of Engineering and Technological fields such as: Oil & Gas; Nuclear Industry; Defence; Aerospace; Design and Engineering.

What is the Recruitment Process?

If you are a graduate in a suitable discipline, then visit the Atkins Graduate Careers website which has a comprehensive list of currently advertised courses http://www.atkinsglobal.co.uk/en/careers/graduates. Search for a suitable course, and you can apply directly online via their website application process.

In order to apply you will be asked to register an account, which you can also use to set up job alerts. Once registered you can complete the online application for a specific role and attach your current CV.

If you are considered eligible for the role, you will be redirected to complete online psychometric tests which will take 15-25 minutes to complete.

Once successfully completed your application will be considered, and if you are a suitable candidate you will be contacted to arrange a telephone interview. This will probably last about 30 minutes and will be your opportunity to demonstrate your passion for the role, and for the employer to better understand your history.

If you are selected for the last stage you will be asked to attend a Graduate Assessment Centre which is a one-day event when you will be expected to complete individual and group tasks whilst under observation. You will also be asked to attend a one-to-one interview during the day.

You will be advised within 28 days whether you have been selected to commence the course.

What do I need to Apply?

Applicants will need to have, or expect to receive a 2:1 degree in a suitable subject, generally construction or engineering related disciplines. It will also be a considerable advantage in most circumstances if you have a good knowledge and understanding of computers and the main Microsoft Office packages, or specific programmes.
It is not usually necessary to be bilingual.

Oh this is great! My son is just choosing his A Level options and Electronics and Engineering are in his choices.  This would be fantastic as I can show him that if he does well in those and then goes on and takes either/or at degree level he has a scheme open to him with electronics or engineering options - fantastic

I've never heard of this company, but judging from what I've just read about needing a 2:1 degree, I imagine they do require quite a high level of intelligence from the graduates they take on.


They might also want people who have at least a little bit of work experience in this field, so if you're planning ahead, you might want to consider that too.
