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.
We have a number of exciting opportunities across the UK and Ireland (UK&I) for graduates to work
within our Traffic Engineering Teams. This team, one of the largest dedicated Traffic Engineering
Teams in the UK&I, is focused on developing engineering measures to achieve a safe and efficient
movement and interaction of pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles on our roads. We focus mainly on
developing and appraising practical solutions which require consideration of traffic flows, road geometry,
cycle facilities, traffic signs, pavement engineering, traffic signals and intelligent transport systems. We
strive to achieve the optimum use of the available space which is often constrained, especially in urban
areas. Our main aim is to create Streets that are more pleasant and safe to use by our local
Our Traffic Engineering Teams work throughout the UK&I and are involved in a wide range of projects
from concept and preliminary design, traffic modelling, through to detailed design and implementation,
with graduates gaining experience in all stages of a project lifecycle. We often work alongside other
construction professionals, such as urban designers, in multi-disciplinary teams to create great urban
spaces. Overall we deliver sustainable cost effective solutions to our clients, whether they are local or
national authorities. Work is often fast paced and requires creativity, tenacity and excellent
communication to achieve the right result for our clients whilst respecting the requirements of wider
stakeholders and maintaining the highest industry standards.
When a graduate starts with us we pair them with an experienced engineer who will guide and mentor
them through their initial period working on live projects. Training is arranged on our software
engineering tools such as Autocad/Civils3D and when, where required, traffic modelling software
including LINSIG, TRANSYT and VISSIM to ensure all our engineers have a full set of design skills.
Early work with us will typically be assisting in developing our designs through the different stages,
attending meetings and workshops with our clients and other design professionals. As a graduate
develops they are expected to take on more responsibility in managing our projects from inception
through to completion.
Candidates will use industry leading computer software and BIM modelling programmes while working
on a variety of different projects including:
Our Traffic Engineering graduates will also have opportunities to work on major highways projects as
both Traffic Engineering and Highway Graduates work together and will rotate between projects so as a
broad range of training will be provided to all our Roads Graduates.
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.
