Our Insight

Gradcracker found that Atkins believes that all experience is valuable and that everyone has something to share. Their reverse mentoring scheme provides a two-way relationship in which employees share their knowledge and experience.

We also liked the fact that Atkins allow their graduates a high degree of choice when it comes to the four rotational projects that make up their two-year graduate programme. 

Watch/listen to the videos and podcasts below to get a real insight into Atkins. (Also, after our visit, we recorded a webinar with Atkins that's well worth a watch.)

We get to know our advertisers by talking to their employees and working with their recruiters on content for their company hubs. We often visit their offices, spending a full day touring their facilities, and hear what they’re getting up to during calls and webinars.

This gives us a real ‘insight’ into their working environment, their culture and the things they are working on. We also learn about their recruitment processes and the things each company looks for in their ideal candidate.

All of this is useful stuff for you to know if you’re considering applying to them – so we thought we’d share it with you!
