Our project managers transform potential into reality. They manage every stage of the project lifecycle from bid to delivery to help our customers deliver controlled change, enrich lives and transform their businesses.
Join us as a project manager and you’ll look after every aspect of world-class, multidisciplinary projects. You’ll build strong customer relationships. You’ll maintain high safety standards. You’ll control costs, manage risks and provide regular updates. And you’ll lead high performing design and delivery teams to always deliver on time, to budget and beyond expectations.
At Atkins, we drive projects of all shapes and sizes across a variety of sectors from transport and energy to defence and the environment. We create plans for and deliver some of the most complex building and infrastructure projects of our time, using tools like Prince2 to make sure everything runs smoothly. The pace is fast. Change is a constant. But you’ll take great pride in your work and the legacy you leave behind. And with our flexible working arrangements, we’ll help you balance the challenges of delivering a quality client service whilst recognising your need to make the most of life outside the office. You’ll be at the heart of a diverse team, sharing knowledge and becoming a trusted advisor. Are you ready to take on your biggest project yet?
We’re looking for project managers who can work in partnership with our customers and deliver a variety of different projects that will transform their world. Helping to deliver small steps and giant leaps, you’ll be someone who enjoys taking on new challenges and broadening your experience. Not afraid to innovate, think differently or challenge the status quo to improve performance, you must also be able to inspire and deliver results through others.
Join our team and you’ll be able to enjoy different roles and opportunities. You’ll experience lots of variety both in terms of the nature of our projects and the customers you’ll work with. As we’re passionate about developing our people, you’ll constantly grow your skills through training courses and on-the-job experience. You’ll develop your knowledge of different project management systems, techniques and methodologies.
We also offer support in many other ways too. Career progression. Rewards to reflect your contribution. And flexible working to help you strike the right work/life balance.
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.
