Tunnels and underground structures form an increasingly critical part of modern-day infrastructure.

This infrastructure provides economic, societal and environmental benefits through the facilitation of efficient and rapid movement of people below-ground. This may be in mass transit systems, high-speed rail lines or in highway tunnels.

We are expanding our team to meet growing demands from our extensive Client base, particularly in the infrastructure and energy sectors. Current areas of demand include nuclear new build, carbon capture & storage, renewable energy (hydropower), and other low carbon engineering.

AtkinsRéalis business is one of the world’s most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies, with over 20,000 employees worldwide. At AtkinsRéalis, we offer more than just a job. We offer an opportunity to make a difference and shape the world to benefit future generations and the natural environment.  As one of the UK’s leading Tunnelling consultancies AtkinsRéalis offers a comprehensive service in underground technology. With a network of UK based and international tunnelling professionals, AtkinsRéalis’ tunnelling reputation is built on the skills, excellence and commitment of our people in all aspects of tunnelling engineering. The tunnelling team is part of the Ground Engineering and Tunnelling (GE&T) Practice.
