Graduates vote Atkins as favourite employer

Consultant Atkins is the employer of choice, a survey of 1,000 of graduate engineers conducted by recruitment agency Target Jobs revealed today.

Over 29% also thought that Balfour Beatty had the best reputation for work experience and placements.

A sound company environmental policy was cited as one of the most important factors when choosing an employer. New recruits also said they were more interested in training and development than the organisational culture or work-life balance.

The top ten engineering companies for graduate engineers applying for jobs are:

  1. Atkins

  2. Arup

  3. Balfour Beatty

  4. Carillion

  5. Laing O’Rourke

  6. AMEC

  7. Sir Robert McAlpine

  8. Kier

  9. Alfred McAlpine

  10. Mott MacDonald
