AECOM - Who We Are

AECOM is a collaborative force of world-class innovators, ideators, and visionaries, on a journey to transform our world for the better.

We have a number of opportunities across the UK for Building Surveying graduates to work within our surveying teams, to help provide a range of building surveying services to our clients in the UK and around the world.

AECOM provides building surveying services to Clients in both the public and private sector, and to organisations in all areas of the Construction Industry including:

Project Based (Design) Work

You will have the chance to be involved in all stages of a project. From initial project definition and brief, design and specification, through to procurement, construction and building use, you will have an opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients including some very high profile names, often working alongside other construction professionals in multi-disciplinary teams. We believe that actually doing the work itself gives the best opportunity to learn, so you can expect to be given responsibility, and will need to be able to work both autonomously and as part of a team, all whilst receiving the guidance and support to allow you to develop.

Professional Based Work

You will be given the opportunity to undertake schedules of condition, dilapidations, party wall works and technical due diligence work. Working under the guidance of senior staff to enable you to gain experience and knowledge in these areas.

  • Contract administration
  • Measured surveys
  • Condition surveys

A Building Surveying Graduate at AECOM could have the opportunity to assist in all of the above tasks, and see projects from inception to completion on site.
