The future depends on what we do today
Our commitment as corporate citizens is to work towards a sustainable future in our normal course of business. So, when you join SNC-Lavalin in the UK and Europe, you’ll be helping to make a powerful, positive impact on the world.
We’re in a privileged position to initiate change through our project planning, design, operations, and related services. And through our leadership position we’re continuing to improve our business’s environmental performance and enable others to do the same. Here are the ways you’ll be joining us to make a difference:
Inspiring the next generation of engineers
Our teams in the UK are tackling our industry’s skills shortage by getting children and young adults excited about STEM careers. Our initiatives have included hosting events at community centers, primary schools and high schools – to creating dedicated, interactive destinations such as our STEM Lab and Puzzle Rooms and creating 'Engine Ears', our STEM engagement film (below). Our teams have also created special activity kits to empower teachers, and sponsored key events, including the Royal Academy of Engineering awards in London.
In Scandinavia our Denmark office sponsors Engineer the Future – a technological alliance between companies, educational institutions, and organizations. Its vision is to raise awareness of the value engineering and tech companies represent now and into the future. By engaging the public, young people, and politicians, Engineer the Future aims to create more exciting jobs, growth, and development in Denmark.
Sustainability knowledge and skills
Join us and we’ll equip you with everything you need to deliver innovative and sustainable solutions. You’ll learn from our Atkins Fellows, inspiring individuals who are building up our next generation of leaders. Opportunities include their regular webinars, where you can absorb their deep technical expertise, ideas and insights. If you join as one of our designers, you’ll participate in our Design for Life training, which will help you to master good practice and hone your knowledge and capabilities.
Investing in our communities
You’ll be exposed to new and meaningful opportunities to work with communities, uplifting their social, environmental and economic health. In the UK we have a formal volunteer programme where volunteers can use their skills to work with relief organizations such as Engineers Without Borders and RedR. Through RedR, colleagues have been seconded to disaster areas, providing technical support to restore anything from schools to water supplies.
Healthy, safe and secure workplaces
When you work for SNC-Lavalin in the UK and Europe, we want you to thrive physically, mentally and socially. As part of our leadership approach to industry safety, we’re involved in Consultants’ Health and Safety Forums. We’re proud of our UK business for being awarded the RoSPA Gold Medal (7 consecutive Golds) for Health and Safety.
Join an employer of choice
As part of our team, you’ll be valued and welcomed to get involved. It doesn’t matter who you are and what your background is, we’ll provide you with equal opportunities at every stage from recruitment, to development, recognition and reward. We are always proud to make a difference to our employees – from supporting National Women in Engineering Day, to being one of The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers, to improving mental health awareness, and championing training and employment of apprentices.
