Careers in defence engineering & design

Helping you achieve your potential - that’s our mission


Protecting the security of our home and of our citizens abroad is one of government’s highest priorities. Atkins supports government defence departments and the wider defence industry through the provision of engineering, technical and project management advice. Our role as a trusted advisor allows us to offer rewarding careers to people who want to enhance their skills and build on their experience in this dynamic sector.

There is a wide range of expertise within our team. From systems engineering to mechanical design and analysis, and from control and instrumentation, to complex infrastructure design and project management. The diversity of opportunities available is matched by the scope and complexity of the projects we’re tasked with. We are the largest consultant engineer to the defence market in the UK and our multidiscipline approach means there are also opportunities to work in the Middle East, within the sector or on other large scale infrastructure projects.

We can’t always shout about the work we’re involved in. Instead, we are quietly doing brilliant things for our clients. We are expected to draw on the latest technology and advanced engineering methods so investing in our people’s skills and professional development means we all stay ahead of the competition. We encourage career progression through technical or management routes. Search our current vacancies to see where a career in Atkins’ defence team may take you.
