Process Engineer (Aberdeen Process & Facilities)

Are you looking for your next opportunity in process engineering?

Would you like to be involved in a variety of feasibility, troubleshooting and optimisation studies for on and off-shore oil & gas processing facilities? If so, we'd love you to apply for this role.

About Us

This is an exciting time for Atkins, our recent acquisition by SNC-Lavalin means that we are diversifying our portfolio to become a more global organisation. This promises to offer unprecedented career opportunities to our staff whilst we continue to grow our existing business units. For both Atkins and SNC-Lavalin, we continue to invest in people. Without the technical excellence of some 50,000 staff we would not be one of the world’s leading engineering and design consultancies. Our philosophy is to help our people navigate a career path which enables them to achieve their ambitions. We offer flexible, rewarding work packages tailored towards career progression, which are founded on the principles of growth, ambition and excellence.

Our Engineering and Consultancy business is delivering engineering, design and consultancy solutions to the oil and gas and Offshore Wind sectors all over the world. Merging original thinking with our experience from 60 years in the energy industry, we help transform the potential of existing infrastructure as well as new resources and technology. We listen and lead across boundaries, bringing lessons learned from one industry or discipline to another to help realise our client’s vision. We deliver what we say we will, building relationships based on trust and integrity: there when we’re needed, fast; committed for the long term; adapting to changes and leaning into challenges.

People join us because they share a desire to be at the forefront of the energy sector and deliver outstanding projects. We empower our people to be the professional individuals they want to be, working on projects they feel proud of, making a different to the world they live in and the legacy they leave behind.
