The Apprenticeship Programme at SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins business is a close-knit, supportive community, with over 80 talented individuals joining up each year. Outside of work we prioritise great times together, getting involved in sports, charitable and social events. Check out what the Apprentices have been getting up to over the last year:

Atkins Apprentice Induction

We welcome new Apprentices into the business annually. The two-day induction takes place in your first year of apprenticeship, and you’ll meet the other Apprentices from across the UK business. Watch the video welcoming last year's cohort:


Sports & Social Clubs

SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins business values work/life balance. We encourage our staff and Apprentices to stay mentally and physically fit and healthy. Each office has social coordinators who organise activities including meals out, karting and ice-skating.



“Being an apprentice with Atkins enables me to get hands-on experience and work with people who have been in the industry for years, as well as studying a higher qualification part-time. I’ve recently been put on a job to inspect pipe bridges for Severn Trent Water. This means I get to go on site every few weeks to inspect the pipes, then write the reports back at the office. Being on site is a great opportunity to learn as you have a real-life situation to apply knowledge to, and writing reports has helped me improve my engineering vocabulary.”

“So far in my time at Atkins I’ve been working on many different types of projects, ranging from structural detailing through to flood defences; I learn something new every day! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my first six months at Atkins. I’ve met some amazing people, gained a vast amount of knowledge and have clear visibility of my future within the industry.” 
Harry Molyneaux


“I really enjoy being an apprentice in the engineering industry. I get a lot of support from very experienced colleagues at Atkins and have obtained a lot of knowledge that I feel I would struggle to gain elsewhere, alongside having the opportunity to study and attain formal qualifications. I am always provided with challenging work which helps me to progress my knowledge and ability quickly whilst gaining confidence in myself. I would advise other young people, particularly females, to undertake an apprenticeship due to the growing reputation of apprentices in the workplace. The industry is definitely becoming more receptive to young individuals with a desire to learn and apprenticeships foster this by presenting opportunities to study at degree level upon entry. Experience is a key factor in employability and nothing can prepare you more at a young age than experience gained in the workplace which is why apprenticeships are so valuable.”
