    Interview process

    After initially applying through a family member that worked at the Transport office, I was given a "nominated fast track application". This meant I did not need to actually apply through the standard website process but just send my CV to HR. I then was given a telephone interview where they asked me mainly of what I have been doing in my degree, what I found most tough what I enjoyed most etc. I was then asked why I am interested in working in Atkins and why that particular industry.

    The whole interview lasted around 15-20min and in essence, it was a fairly comfortable interview and not too scary as I initially thought.

    After a few days, they then informed me that I made the next stage and should take the numerical and and verbal reasoning tests. I did some practice via online websites beforehand, however after taking the tests I found out that I had not scored highly enough and did not make the next stage. Make sure you prepare enough for online tests!!!
