First Job

This has been a great first job, I have learnt new skills, learnt how to put my knowledge gained at university into practise as well as other transferable skills. Working in a busy multi disciplinary office there is always a friendly, hard-working atmosphere. The thing I enjoy most about this job is the variety and friendly colleagues, who are always offering help and guidance.


Long commute

A top class ecology team with great work ethic.

The Atkins ecology team comprises approximately 60 ecologists with excellent technical ability. A technical excellence programme and an innovation programme are in place which promote the professional development of staff and innovation. There is a strong emphasis on staff well-being and maintaining a good work/life balance and the team is led by a very capable management team. The workload is extremely varied with the team working on a range of interesting schemes, many of which are nationally important infrastructure schemes.


Excellent management team, employee well-being a priority, varied and interesting work.

unsupportive management

Naive management, basically criticized and got rid of me due to health problems. A more experienced manager would've handled things a lot better


good team to woro for
