On the 25th April, SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins business is hosting a Military Insight day at the Marriot Hotel in York. This event will bring to life the many exciting and vibrant roles that Atkins offers for those looking to transition from the military into professional service. These roles span the aerospace, defence, national security, cities & development, aviation, water, energy, highways and rail sectors.

Atkins is one of the world’s most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies. As a holder of the Gold Award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme and full supporter of the Armed Forces Covenant, Atkins is continually committed to providing the best possible support and experience for individuals with an Armed Forces background. Atkins offers a wide variety of roles where ex-military personnel can learn to utilise and implement their existing skills to have outstanding careers in the fields of engineering, project management and many more! Your readily transferable skills and qualities that have been established throughout your military career, will be nurtured and developed in a safe and inclusive environment with a positive culture, allowing you to excel in your new career.

The day will be focused on exploring the recruitment process and business and commercial acumen that it is often cited that ex-military lack. Atkins veterans will give their experiences of transitioning from military life into thriving careers with us. Furthermore, guest speakers of varying levels from SLC Rail, Arriva Northern Rail and TSP Projects will share their knowledge and experience of entering into their respective market areas as veterans. A presentation and support from our HR team will provide guidance with the technical processes required to provide you with the best opportunity to find the right role for you.

Atkins veterans and reservists will be around during the networking session at lunchtime and the end of the day. They will be happy to answer your questions and share their experiences with you.
