Read more about how you can thrive with us.

The Role

We are currently seeking two Assistant/Graduate Engineers to join our Bridges and Civils team within our Transportation Practice, based in Birmingham. The successful candidates will support our team in Midlands working on a number of exciting, high-profile projects and frameworks. This includes East West Rail Phase 2, HS2, Highways England East Region DSC and the Central Rail Systems Alliance. The team supports wider projects throughout the UK, as well as a range of local market projects.  

Using your technical and delivery skills, you will be responsible for delivering a variety of civil and structural design packages for new build highways and rail schemes, renewals schemes, assessment works and asset management schemes. Your duties will include the production of design packages, to budget, to programme, and in accordance with Atkins’ quality assurance systems.

You will have a background in civil engineering design, and an interest in the delivery of multi-disciplinary projects within highway or rail environments. You will ideally be familiar with working on projects at varying stages of development from feasibility to detailed design.

Qualifications

  • BEng / MEng or MSc degree in civil engineering or equivalent.
  • Graduate membership of the ICE or IStructE, working towards Chartership, or a desire to become a member.

Expected Criteria

The role will be varied, requiring a balance of relevant industry experience, technical ability, communication and stakeholder management skills. Expected criteria are:

  • Experience of working with key clients such as Local Authorities, Highways England, Network Rail, Developers and/or major Contractors
  • Good awareness of relevant design standards (e.g. Eurocodes, DMRB, MCHW and those of Highways England and Network Rail) 
  • Ability to work to agreed scopes and budgets, to deliver design packages within set time frames
  • Ability to prepare reports and collate specifications – for projects and tenders
  • Sound knowledge of Microsoft Office programmes, particularly Word and Excel.
  • Sound interpersonal skills and ability to converse with a wide range of colleagues across a number of engineering disciplines

We recognise that, particularly early in your career, your experience might not fit these criteria exactly but if you have a desire to develop, we’re still keen to hear from you.
