Shaping the future
Atkins is one of the world’s most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies. Collaborating with clients, we’re driven to make our world a better place. We also strive to make a difference in the way we work, from supporting the STEM skills agenda to setting standards as an employer of choice.
Our work enriches people’s lives and the places they live – whether developing smart cities, accelerating connectivity for communities, or transforming design with technology. Opportunities include planning, designing and enabling complex projects and major programs across transportation, energy and infrastructure.
Atkins was founded in 1938. Over the decades we have become one of the UK’s most respected consultancies, quickly cementing a strong international presence.

We continue to operate as Atkins to advance our various capabilities across the globe.
From hopeful beginnings in civil and structural engineering, to innovating in nuclear, to pushing into the future of rail and intelligent cities – our people have delivered on some of the world’s most complex projects, such as:
- European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS): signalling and telecommunications work, Denmark
