Do you want to expand your career?

We value the unique training and experience military veterans bring to our teams, currently employing more than 9,000 veterans on projects around the world: the skills that former armed forces personnel bring to our business are an important part of our success. As a Ministry of Defence Gold Employer in the Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS), we invest in our Armed Forces Programme to give people the support and guidance they need when transitioning between careers.

Offering an additional 15 days leave each year for serving employees, AECOM has strong links with the reserve community, while our partnership with 170 Infrastructure Group Royal Engineers has led to 70 of our graduates attending Stretch leadership events at Sandhurst and Chetwynd Barracks.

As a dedicated veterans employer, we currently have ex-forces personnel in the following roles across the UK: Project Manager, Chief Project Director, Head of Media Relations, Director - International Development, Operations Manager and many more.

Why we need you

“As a former officer myself, I have seen first-hand the breadth of highly transferable skills our armed forces can bring to a company like AECOM. We remain committed to recruiting servicemen and women looking to leave the military and providing them with a rewarding second career.” – Steve Morriss, Group President, Design and Consulting Services, Americas.

We recognise the potential benefits that ex-armed forces personnel bring to AECOM such as strong leadership, team-building and analytical skills, and an unwavering commitment to seeing a job done well. Managing tight budgets, making decisions in the face of uncertainty and ensuring safe operation in high-risk environments are also desirable qualities that we as a global infrastructure business look for in our employees.

Above all, we want people who are passionate about making a positive impact in communities and on people’s lives. If you join us you will play a part in finding solutions to some of the world’s most complex challenges on a local and global scale. In return, we will provide the support and guidance you need to help you settle into a second, fulfilling career.
