Australia graduate program

As part of the AtkinsRéalis Australia graduate program, our aim is to support graduates to accomplish their dreams and to also help them find their passion. Akshay Doosa, a graduate of Queensland University started his journey with us in 2021. He says, “I was fascinated with trains as a young kid. I loved traveling in them, playing with train sets, and when they inevitably broke down, I would take them apart to try to fix them.

AtkinsRéalis being the leader in Brisbane Rail Consulting with projects such as the Cross River Rail, Inland Rail, and Queensland Train Manufacturing Program (formerly called The Rollingstock Expansion Program) attracted me to want to join the organization. I have constantly been surprised by the time and energy that my seniors at AtkinsRéalis are willing to invest in me, which I will forever be grateful for. The best part about my job is the fun I have in seeing myself grow professionally as well as personally.” Through our culture and projects, we hope to offer a career journey that people cherish.

What opportunities are available in Australia?

Opportunities at AtkinsRéalis are endless irrespective of the individual’s role, location or experience. We aspire to make work exciting, fun and full of learning. Henry Bange, a graduate from Queensland University of Technology who joined us in 2020 says, "AtkinsRéalis has provided me with opportunities to work on some major projects and with some of the most exciting people in the industry. It's been extremely rewarding to play a minor role in some major infrastructure projects (such as QTMP) while also being the lead engineer and project manager on the smaller TETRA radio project at such early stages of my career. Every day brings new challenges, and no two days feel the same at AtkinsRéalis ."

We understand that the future is uncertain, but everything we do is to engineer a better future for our planet and its people. Learning and growing never stops at AtkinsRéalis.

At AtkinsRéalis, we take pride in creating exciting experiences for our graduates. Aishwarya Manibala Jha, a graduate of the University of New South Wales says, "For the SCT Signalling Compatibility Testing project, I have been on-site in Adelaide twice to conduct a series of close-up effect test runs on two locomotive variants to demonstrate compliance with TfNSW AMB requirements. The best part was that I got to ride in the driver's cab of the locomotive, learn about the driver's cab controls, and visit the maintenance facility."
