Top-notch international engineering consulting. Stands out in our experience for the sheer niceness and interestingness of the people who work for it. Neither of these degrees gets you onto the top rungs of the professional ladder, but we'd expect Atkins to help you on up there if you showed the aptitude and the appetite.

The website has a fantastic, cinema-worthy video which we wanted to put on a loop! Our real life was made easy as they provide a telephone number and the contact went beyond the call of duty in providing details of not just one but two schemes. They also mention 2018 applications, again a rare event.

You will very rapidly be part of building real IT applications; expect to be living out of a suitcase near whichever client you are working for. If you have ambitions to move into their mainstream consulting business, make sure that you understand what this takes: their recruitment into this area is very Oxbridgey, and we are not clear how an IT apprentice could come up-to-status.
