At AECOM we know that the power to create innovative solutions and be the best is connected to our ability to attract, develop and manage diverse teams. We are working hard to create a truly inclusive culture, one where every voice is heard and one that attracts people from a wide range of backgrounds bringing different perspectives, ideas and working styles.
As part of this we are introducing a new scheme St Albans,
AECOM Apprentice Plus , designed to tap into a new group of potential employees – namely those people, often women, who have delayed the start of their career or who want to refocus their career after a break.
Apprentice Plus is targeted at people who have been out of the workplace for some time and want to refocus their career or start a career for the first time.
Concerned that you have left it too late to start a new career journey? Worried that you don’t have the right qualifications? AECOM’s Apprentice Plus programme is open to anyone, regardless of age, qualifications or experience and provides the appropriate support and guidance to help people kick start a new career whatever their circumstances.
AECOM’s Apprentice Plus is an apprentice programme with a difference. It offers a flexible working approach from the outset to allow people to balance home commitments with their wish to invest in their own career.
Following completion a short period of time working in the business, AECOM will fund an apprenticeship training course starting in September 2018. Participants must commit to attending college for one full day per week and then a
minimum of 20 hours a week in the office. The type and length of the college course will depend on your levels of experience and education. AECOM will also provide in-house training and development to support the return to the workplace.
