What we do:

Over the next two years AECOM are undertaking for the Scottish Government the Strategic Transport Projects Review 2, which will shape the future of Scotland’s transport infrastructure investment over the next 20 years. At the same time, as the number one ranked consultant on Transport Scotland’s transport modelling framework we will be updating Scotland’s national transport model, and pushing further on our research into the use of mobile phone data. AECOM is therefore uniquely positioned in Scotland to offer a transport modeller the opportunity to undertake exciting projects that will have a real impact on people’s lives.

A variety of different teams and opportunities within AECOM for whatever career pathway you want to take

Exciting projects (some not so exciting, let’s be honest) to work on ranging from local, national and international problems to solve to keep you busy, including the maintenance and update of the Transport Model for Scotland

A flexible working policy – work/life balance is the key! We would consider the role on either a full or part-time basis and are happy to look at a range of different working patterns.

Dedicated mentors to help support you in your future training

A comprehensive internal training programme to teach you what you may want to learn but haven’t had the chance to yet

And last but not least, a central, modern office with panoramic views of the city centre
