AECOM is built to deliver a better world. We design, build, finance and operate infrastructure assets for
governments, businesses and organizations in more than 150 countries. As a fully integrated firm, we
connect knowledge and experience across our global network of experts to help clients solve their most
complex challenges. From high-performance buildings and infrastructure, to resilient communities and
environments, to stable and secure nations, our work is transformative, differentiated and vital.
AECOM have a number of exciting opportunities across the UK for graduates to work within our
Development Planning Teams. The Development team is focused on transport planning and
engineering specifically geared towards land-use and property development. This could be a mixed use
cultural hub, large scale residential schemes, new supermarket or a major town centre regeneration
scheme. The integrated team provides design and planning advice from inception (planning) through to
detailed design (Engineering) and physical completion, often working alongside other construction
professionals in multi-disciplinary teams.
Overall we deliver sustainable cost effective solutions to our client’s transport and highway challenges, with the majority of schemes requiring ‘outside the box’ creative thinking. Work is often fast paced and requires tenacity and excellent communication to achieve the right result for our clients whilst respecting the requirements of wider stakeholders.
Our Graduate Development Programme (GDP), along with our huge scope of projects across the globe,
will challenge and inspire you to make a real difference to the world we live in. Our programmes form a
core part of our business strategy globally, designed to develop the best talent across numerous
disciplines to lead our business into the future. We have over 1,000 graduates on our programmes
across the UK and Ireland, from over 30 different disciplines, and each and every one of them makes a
tangible difference to the environment we all live and work in.
We will provide you with all the tools and support you need to achieve your professional development
ambitions, including chartership with the relevant international professional institution – where we have
graduates working towards over 30 professional institutions in the UK and Ireland. We demand the
highest standards and expect our graduates to pass their professional review first time. You will be
assigned a mentor to support and guide your development, and undertake regular training modules
throughout the programme. There will be on-the-job and classroom training where required, and the
opportunity to work on live client projects with significant multi-disciplinary exposure.
