Recruitment Open Event – North West


SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins business is scouring the North West for a variety of roles and disciplines. Be at our recruitment open event on 2nd October 2018 to hear from key speakers on our latest innovations, and to meet influential people at the Warrington business. It’s a great platform to meet your future team and find out about some of our projects that are changing the future today. If you’re restarting your career, we’ll introduce you to our partners, ‘STEM Returners’. Come along to find out how you’ll be empowered as you embark on a promising new chapter.


We started out as Atkins, one of the most respected international design, engineering and project management consultancies in the world. Today we are part of global giant SNC-Lavalin. Work with us and you’ll enjoy all the benefits a multinational company can offer — from great employee benefits, to travel and exposure to impressive world-wide clients and projects.


If you’re excited about progressing your career through technology you’ve come to the right place. We’re always developing new apps and systems to help improve the way we and the larger industry works. We’re using Virtual Reality in new ways through the design process. By combining VR with the latest in digital scanning we’re making virtual site visits possible – and spearheading heightened safety standards.


You’ll find that working at the business will bring you many incredible opportunities at every stage of your career. The Warrington office is friendly and made up of a diverse team of market-leading experts across the disciplines. We enable our employees to understand how the business works and to be proactive and independent. But we also value true multidisciplinary collaboration, being innovative, supporting each other and always enhancing the way we work together. You will also work alongside bright, ambitious graduates who inject great energy into the business.


You’ll become part of a ‘sociable family’ where promoting a more inclusive culture for everyone is important. One of our top business priorities is to be a truly inclusive employer. So we’re always improving the way we think, behave and work for all underrepresented groups. We’re working to get rid of the stigma around mental health, having signed the Time to Change Pledge. And to look out for our staff’s holistic wellbeing, we also employ Mental Health First Aiders.


If you have out of work commitments — from being a parent or carer, athlete or reservist — you can expect us to have your back informally and formally. We believe in supporting our employee’s work-life passions, making it possible for you to achieve a happy balance. These are some of the benefits we offer:

  • Great flexible working choices • Option to buy up to 15 days extra holiday a year
  • Two days a year #givingback as a volunteer


Our offices are situated 15 minutes drive from Warrington City Centre. Connections are unrivalled for weekend breaks, with three motorways, two major rail lines and, if you like to take it easy, a scenic network of canals. By air, John Lennon Airport on the River Mersey takes you to a huge number of destinations. Nationally, Warrington is the only urban economy in the North to feature in the top 10, whilst still offering fantastic value for first time home buyers.
