    Hi KTS89

    We look at Geology/Geoenvironmental in both Ground Engineering and Environment and Urban Design. So it's worth reading the descriptions checking that the roles you are interested in are still open, as we do have some earlier closing dates.

    The next choice will be which to apply for; If it helps Ground Engineering design, build and repair all kinds of infrastructure from dams and mass transit systems to transport and utility infrastructure.

    With Environment and Urban Design looking at EIA, Flood & Coastal Risk Management, Water Resources and Contaminated Land.
    So there are some subtle differences to think about.

    I hope this helps.

    I have applied for a role in the Graduate Scheme, but after just entering my details and degree subject (without uploading any CV or CL) I received a messagae that I would be sent a Situational Judgment Test, which I haven't for a couple of weeks now. What does that mean?

    Hi KTS89

    We are reviewing lots of applications at the moment and it may be that we have some of these roles 'on hold' or 'closed to new applications' at this stage so we can spend the time reviewing everyone in the process. As we do spend time looking at each application as it comes through.

    However we usually have a message that would inform you if this was the case on the job description on the website, or via an email.

    If you drop us a direct message I will have at look at your status application status and give you a full update.

    Hi Jessica

    You can only apply to one graduate scheme with us in each yearly intake. As we like to try and make sure we find out what you are most interested in.

    The good thing is that the early careers team work very closely together so if you do have more than one area of interest in your original application, we do look at that as well and if we think you would so suit another role, we do get in touch.

    I hope this helps answer the question

    Hi Petro_99

    We don't have any specific roles in materials science this year, however we do find material scientists do fit into some other areas of our business so we do consider these applications.

    As you mention technology a good option would be to look at the Aerospace,Defence, Security & Technology (ADST) division.
    If you have any questions let us know.

    Thanks

    Hi AIBO1

    We do have some things that you might find interesting. Our aerospace, defence, security and technology (ADST) team are looking for some systems and software placement students to work with them in Aldershot in 2016 and all you have to do is apply online through our website.

    We also have a few areas like transportation, where we are working on the 'future' of transport networks through projects like 'smart motorways' and 'autonomous vehicles' where we look for people with interests in systems and software.

    Do you have any particular projects that would interest you?

    Is your middle east graduate scheme restricted to Civil engineers or are there opportunities for Mechanical? Also are the other international schemes restricted. I.e applying to applying for NA graduate scheme positions as a UK student. Thanks.

    Would it be preferred to have an internship with Atkins even if it's less related to the graduate scheme or taking up an internship at a different company and then applying to the graduate schemes. I.e Geotechnical summer internship vs mechanical elsewhere.

    Hi Sae.HH

    I work in the UK team so I will help as much as I can here. The scheme in the middle east is a little smaller than our UK scheme with the majority of the roles having a civil engineering focus. I recommend having a read through the roles that interest you and checking if you meet the application criteria.

    You are welcome to apply to each international scheme, however please only make one application per scheme.

    Any internship experience is always useful, although it is not essential when applying to our schemes. The key thing is to make the most of any placements you have so i would recommend focusing on your area of interest.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Atkins!

    Is it possible to know when decisions about telephone interviews might start being made? My application for Water, Ground and Environment has been on hold since November 5th.

    Thanks,
