Careers at Atkins in the rail sector

Our people are connecting countries, cities and communities with our work on some of the world’s most complex and high profile rail projects. As more governments and private operators invest in integrated, fast and efficient networks as a way of boosting economic growth and encouraging modal shift, we’re providing unrivalled technical expertise to our clients in this strategically important sector.

A reliable and efficient transport network provides the backbone for society and the people in Atkins’ rail and mass transit teams know that what we do in a day can have benefits that last for generations. We offer specialist knowledge and advice on all of the core mass transit modes, including trams, light rail, metro systems, rapid light transit, airport people-movers, and monorail. And our people’s knowledge and experience covers intricate minor works through to full-scale remodelling.

The range, longevity and complexity of rail and transit assets is not often found in other sectors. As a result, our high-calibre teams can be defined by their innovative approach and commitment to excellence. Our multidisciplinary services are delivered from our offices in the USA, UK, Scandinavia, China, the Middle East, and India. And we provide the best technical solutions to our clients through sharing experience and knowledge on a worldwide scale.

We have great stories to tell about our achievements in this sector. We have helped change the way people travel with our work on Dubai’s metro and we have helped London Underground operators update ageing infrastructure. Our expertise lies in the planning, development, engineering, construction and oversight of rail and mass transit facilities. And we can support operators around the world as they look to invest in new, more efficient links.
