Our people make the difference for women at Atkins.

This year's application process was the most competitive in five years. And we could not have done this without our people. Thank you, and congratulations to the employees, at all levels of our organization, who tirelessly press for gender equality.

Together, we deliver what's right for our people and communities.

"This recognition is incredibly important to us, not only as a major employer in the UK, but as a design, engineering, and project management consultancy which fully understands the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion. While there is some way go to reach gender equality across our industry, I'm proud of the progress we're making and the decisions we've made as a forward-looking, socially conscious organization."
– Richard Robinson
Atkins UK and Europe CEO

We only thrive because we work together.

Our organization was assessed in many areas, from our recruitment approach to family-friendly policies and how we've championed gender equality during the pandemic. We stood out for our diverse processes, data monitoring and transparency, support for career progression and our overall strategy to improve our diversity and gender equality.

Recognizing everyone for their contributions equally

"COVID-19 has shone a light on how far we have to go on gender equality. By having to pick up things like the bulk of extra caring responsibilities, women have been disproportionately affected by lockdown... Employers like Atkins haven't forgotten women at work and are committed to making gender inequality a thing of the past."
– Charlotte Woodworth
Gender Equality Director at “Business in the Community,” which runs the listing.
