Atkins are one of the largest multidisciplinary, multi sector engineering design consultancies in the world and have been voted as a Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies to Work for 2015.
Our Water, Ground and Environment business have been successful in securing a number of multi million pound design frameworks within the UK Water Industry between 2015 and 2020.
We are looking for engineers to join our Bristol office who are able to innovate and challenge standard practices. We want great communicators who can integrate well and who see beyond the standard approach to design delivery.
Within our Engineering Design practice, we have an opportunity for Mechanical Engineers based in Bristol.
You will join an established team of around 60 civil, mechanical, electrical and process engineers working from our office in Bristol. You will be expected to be a team player, and work collaboratively with design and construction colleagues to input into multidisciplinary schemes for major clients.
We will be delivering outline and detailed design work across several multimillion pound design frameworks. We will also be providing engineering expertise to a wide range of UK and international clients in water and environmental related projects - but outside of the regulated UK Water Industry.
