Gradcracker works here's the proof
"The AECOM graduate scheme has given me the opportunity to meet graduates from offices all over the UK & Ireland"
BA Architecture, University of Sheffield
I joined AECOM in December 2014 after graduating from university in July of that year. I was keen to work for a multi-disciplinary architecture practice and the size and scope of AECOM’s projects and their use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) drew me to the company.
From day one, my line manager and mentor have involved me in projects and training which have helped me to develop existing skills and learn a variety of new ones. This is equipping me for future projects but also, for going back to do my master’s degree in Architecture, if I so wish. During my first seven months I have had the chance to get involved in a wide range of tasks; from concept design and modelling in Revit, to planning, detailed and final drawings, working closely with the client throughout. I have had the opportunity to work and learn independently, but being part of a multi-disciplinary team has also meant I have been surrounded by colleagues with experience and knowledge in a wide number of areas.
The AECOM graduate scheme has given me the opportunity to meet graduates from offices all over the UK & Ireland, and to hear about the different business lines within AECOM and the projects which are taking place across the globe.
What has struck me about AECOM is how supportive they are in making your career with them what you want it to be. My line manager is currently looking to get me a secondment in the Manchester office for some more commercial architectural experience. Many opportunities come with being part of such a vast company, and I have been encouraged to not settle in the job I have started in, but to explore different opportunities within the company and to never stop pushing for the next step in my career.
