Emerge - new graduate experience

We’re AtkinsRéalis, a world-leading design, engineering and project management organization. What makes us different is the way we work, and the way we think. We know that as an industry leader, our continued growth and prominence begins with investing in the next generation of talent. It’s this understanding that underpins the design of Emerge and the new graduate experience for our entry-level USA employees. 

About Emerge

Emerge is an 18-month program designed to integrate new graduates into our organization in the US, and provide mentoring, formal training, on the job experience, career development opportunities, and sense of community through networking with other early career professionals. Whether you have a degree in Civil Engineering, are interested in our Nuclear business, or graduated with a Finance and Accounting degree, Emerge is for you. This experience is not limited to our technical professionals and is open to STEM and business graduates alike.

World-class learning practices suggest that employee development is best obtained through the application of the 70-20-10 model: employees obtain 70% of their learning from experiences and challenging assignments, 20% from interaction with others, and 10% from formal training.

Emerge has been designed to include all three components of this development model, with the majority of development of our new graduates coming from practical and meaningful on-the-job experience.

Emerge is designed to give you the support you need to begin to thrive in the professional world and with AtkinsRéalis USA.
