Why join ATLAS ELEKTRONIKUK as a Graduate?

Please feel free to watch this video with opinions from our Apprentices and Graduates on ATLAS UK as an employer:

Adam Salkeld, 2015 Graduate

“Having worked in a couple of different industries for five years after completing my Physics Masters I was looking for a long term career. Research about Atlas Elektronik indicated that the work would be interesting, varied and at the forefront of modern ideas and technology, since joining I have found this to be an accurate picture. During the interview I was reassured of the potential to progress both in my immediate job role and throughout the company.  It was this along with the benefits, including a good pension scheme, flexible working hours, fair pay with regular reviews and many more that swayed me to choose Atlas UK.”

Jennifer Cocks, 2015 Graduate

"I applied to AEUK for a position as a Graduate Engineer towards the end of my Oceanography degree. It looked like a really interesting and varied role and a good way to apply what I’d learned at Uni. During the interview process I met people from around the company and learnt about some of their projects, giving me a good impression of the work I’d be doing and the office environment. I also met several previous Graduate employees, all who enjoyed the Scheme and learnt a lot. My experiences when visiting Atlas gave me a good feeling about the company as a whole and confidence that the role would provide interesting work as well as the chance to learn a range of skills and develop professionally."

Neil Bennett, 2015 Graduate

"When I visited ATLAS UK for my interview I was immediately struck by the friendly, welcoming atmosphere and very quickly felt at ease. It quickly became clear to me that ATLAS ELEKTRONIK UK is a company that invests in people and looks after its employees, on both a personal and professional level. The prospect of being supported by the well-structured graduate scheme and working on a team project alongside other new colleagues was particularly exciting."
