Our career paths
At Atkins we recognise that you are unique and that the journey you take during your career with us will be personal to you. We have four overarching career paths that describe the options available: technical, project management, business management and business development. As your career develops you may work across one or more of these, or perhaps a blend of each. We actively encourage our people to work across different sectors (e.g. roads, rail, utilities, defence, aerospace, the built environment) or in different locations in order to broaden their skills, expertise and insight.
