Full Time

Atkins is shaping the future of transportation and were looking for talented people to join us in developing and expanding our Transport Asset Management practice. Youll join at an exciting time with asset management being a key growth theme across both our Transportation and wider businesses.

As the digital world collides with our physical environment, we're facing a wave of opportunity to use our skills in new ways. Our team is seizing this opportunity to grow and shape the industry. We are team of asset management professionals with rich and diverse professional and personal backgrounds, and we cover all parts of asset management, including, strategic, tactical, analytics, and resilience advice. The projects we work on are varied, dynamic and stimulating, providing plenty of opportunity for new challenges and personal growth.

Asset management is one of Atkins priorities for growth, and Group Engineers are required to support our existing portfolio of projects and provide capacity to grow the business and support future opportunities. The people were seeking to employ will enjoy contributing across a portfolio of consultancy projects and will thrive in a busy, innovative and challenging environment. Youll be technically excellent, whatever your level of experience and will be equally happy presenting to a client or developing technical details back at the office.

These roles will involve working closely with our road clients in a range of projects related to asset management: from assisting in the development of the pavement works programme, providing strategic direction to clients in defining and implementing their asset management policies, to using data and analysis tools to develop other works programmes at the tactical level. Our markets are national road, local authorities, and PPP organisations in the UK and overseas. The focus will be in project management and project delivery, with some support activities including project bidding and business development.

We are looking to grow our teams in Birmingham and Glasgow, but as a flexible employer with offices across the UK we will always consider the right candidates for other locations.
