Managing Consultant - Business Transformation

Atkins’ UK Transportation business brings together the capabilities of our Rail, Highway and Local Transport teams, into a single business of 3,000 talented engineering professionals transport planners and consultants. The unique breadth of services in Transportation, combined with our scale, makes Atkins the leading UK transportation infrastructure consultancy. We create a culture and environment to inspire our people, ensure collaboration with our clients and continue to shape the future of mobility.

The UK transport sector is experiencing unprecedented levels of investment and SNC Lavalin/Atkins is playing a lead role in helping our clients develop, plan and deliver projects as part of long-term infrastructure programmes.

The sector has seen significant growth driven by long-term funding commitments from Government in recognition of the critical role that strategic connectivity plays in supporting economic growth. Our clients face key challenges in defining and delivering their long-term programmes, maximising the value of assets and embracing new technologies so that they can deliver the best outcomes for users and for the economy. 
These challenges are driving the need for change in the way our clients do business enabling them to deliver their investments and deliver against their strategic priorities. Our Transport Business Consulting and Advisory Practice sits within our Transportation Consultancy business and helps our clients to solve some of their most critical business challenges.

Our Business Transformation team, in Transport Business Consulting and Advisory Practice is a relatively new team set up in the last quarter of 2017 to enable us to move outside Atkins traditional core services for Transportation clients, including working with new clients, to create a differentiator through solving domain specific strategic business challenges.

Role:

  • We are looking to recruit talented people with a track record of delivery, ideally in the transportation and infrastructure sectors. We pride ourselves in taking a hands-on role with our clients to understand their business challenges and work with them to achieve their ambition.
  • The roles we are seeking to fill sit within our Business Transformation team and will enable us to build our capability and capacity to span the full range of business consulting expertise: strategy setting; implementing and managing change, including cultural and behavioural leadership; business performance improvement; benefits realisation; research and stakeholder engagement.
  • The successful candidates will have responsibility for client-facing work from the outset. All our consultants are expected to have regular interactions with clients, to lead work-streams or projects, and to support senior colleagues in delivering specific project outputs
  • Successful candidates will be expected to support achievement of challenging operational and revenue targets for consultancy revenue secured from target client organisations and the development and delivery of our wider transportation strategy for these clients.
  • The roles can be based in either our London, Epsom, Birmingham, Warrington, Manchester or Cardiff offices. Travel to attend client sites across the UK and potentially overseas, as required, is key.

About you:

  • You will need a blend of excellent client-facing project delivery expertise, coupled with strong technical skills with the ability to demonstrate high levels of problem-solving ability in relation to technically complex or conceptually abstract ideas. You must be able to deal with competing tasks and operate successfully even when under pressure.
  • You have at least a degree or equivalent qualification and may hold, or be working towards, a professional qualification.
  • You will have a variety of consulting capabilities and techniques to suit different situations. These might include strategy development – both business and delivery, research, analysis, organisational development, cultural and behavioural change, business process analysis and improvement, change impact assessment, coaching and/or mentoring; training development and delivery.
  • We require highly collaborative individuals who can deliver great results and operate to high behavioural standards and business ethics and who are capable of maximising the value of networks within and outside Atkins, including with our market facing teams.
    You should have well developed emotional intelligence and the ability to flex your style to suit different stakeholders and the ability to build trusted and lasting relationships with clients at all levels in a business environment.
  • You will have excellent written communication skills and the ability to present and deliver outcomes which are compelling, accurate, and engaging both to clients and in support of our business development and work winning activities.

Working for Atkins:

  • With Atkins you will be in a trusted, supported position, where you are able to apply both existing skills and develop new skills in complex and challenging situations. You will be able to share your knowledge and experience and learn from others within the team and you will have opportunities to further develop your own expertise as a multi-skilled consultant.
