Careers in Education

Are you looking for a job that makes a difference? 

With Atkins you’ll have the chance to work on education projects that will change the way future generations learn. You’ll work alongside some of the brightest brains in the business to pioneer standardised design and offsite construction for primary schools, create university landmarks that dominate city skylines, and design some of the world’s most prestigious campuses. As part of our team, you’ll share our passion for creating high quality learning environments and finding new, innovative approaches to design.

Whether you’re an architect, civil or structural engineer, building services engineer, quantity surveyor or landscape architect, you can help us make a real difference in education. Because we feel each of our roles should be every bit as engaging as the projects we work on, and that it’s never too late to learn, we’ll support you throughout your professional development and career progression.

The Innovation Centre and Campus Hub, 
Easter Bush Campus, University of Edinburgh 

Formed of two dramatic halves; one a fully glazed ellipse 
that appears to float over the ground, and the other for animal
sciences in the original birthplace of Dolly the sheep, clad in a 
‘living wall’ of plants. 


Lime Tree Primary Academy 

Much like Lime Tree’s teaching, our design blends indoors
with the great outdoors. Our design works with the landscape
to create a metaphysical forest, with columns clad in tree bark, green and sky blue cladding inspired by leaves in the sunlight, and classrooms full of natural light connected by ‘forest clearings’. Have a look at what the teachers and parents at Lime Tree had to say about their new school.
