Over 500 graduates and apprentices begin their careers at Amey

Amey has announced that 258 graduates and 259 apprentices have joined the firm following the latest intake who joined the organisation at the start of September. 

Gaining key industry experience while receiving support from senior colleagues, there are now 258 graduates taking part in Amey’s graduate development programme. The two-year programme provides a choice of career pathways for graduates from a wide range of degree disciplines, including engineering, quantity surveying, operational management and other commercial and corporate roles. 

Receiving guidance and mentoring from industry experts, graduates will be exposed to real projects from day one and are supported in gaining qualifications from their relevant professional institution. 

Simon Grundy, a graduate innovation manager with Amey Consulting and Rail, said: “Amey offers the chance to work with some exceptional people and surround yourself with brilliant individuals and teams who endeavour to support, challenge and guide you through your development into an intense, dynamic and rewarding career.”

Amey’s apprenticeship programme offers young people the opportunity to learn new skills, earn a salary and gain nationally recognised qualifications. There are now 259 apprentices on the Amey apprenticeship programme, working in areas ranging from arboriculture and electrical engineering to accounting and customer service. 

Alex Marriott, an Amey apprentice completing her Level 3 business administration with Sheffield Streets Ahead, said: “Amey has pushed me to learn more and to drive myself to better my career. I’ve picked up a lot of knowledge since being part of my apprenticeship and it’s given me a range of business skills.”

Amey’s HR director Ian Deninson said: “We are always looking for enthusiastic and ambitious individuals who are prepared to challenge and drive our business forward. We have high expectations of all the graduates and apprentices we hire. But, in turn, we are committed to offering them the very best opportunities to build on their experience so we can develop them to their maximum potential.”
