About the entity

Themes

As reported by New Civil Engineer, AECOM is set to significantly expand its workforce in the Environment, Water, and Energy (EWE) sector, with plans to hire approximately 380 new professionals this year. This strategic move is in response to the growing global need for expertise in tackling climate change, water scarcity, and the energy transition. AECOM's involvement in major projects across various regions, including the UK and Paraguay, is driving this expansion.

Key projects under AECOM's purview include the innovative Mansfield sustainable drainage scheme in the UK, aimed at providing climate resilience and reducing flood risks through nature-based solutions. Another notable project is the management of the Environmental Impact Assessment for National Grid’s electricity network upgrade from Grimsby to Walpole in the UK. Additionally, AECOM is playing a pivotal role in the front-end engineering design for Atome's 120MW Villeta Project, a green hydrogen-based fertilizer project in Paraguay.

The new roles at AECOM will cover diverse areas such as energy (including transmission, distribution, and renewables), water management, environmental impact assessments, and planning. They will also focus on communities, carbon and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance criteria), environmental health and safety, and environmental due diligence.

Gert Vermeiren, Managing Director for AECOM Europe and India EWE, emphasizes the exciting opportunities these roles present. Employees will engage in impactful projects contributing to the net-zero goal and benefit from AECOM's "Think and Act Globally" strategy, which fosters global collaboration and innovation.

AECOM's recruitment drive not only demonstrates its commitment to addressing key environmental challenges but also reflects the growing importance of sustainable and resilient solutions in the water and energy sectors globally.
