Tamsyn Tankard-Evans (Graduate 2016)

"After finishing my PhD in Astronomy I was looking for a career where I could progress in an innovative real-world environment. After my interview day it was clear that working at Atlas would offer me an opportunity to develop my skills in an industry with varied and exciting projects, surrounded by enthusiastic, clever people who are keen to help. I am now applying my existing expertise to solve exciting problems, while improving and learning new skills every day and with continuous support through the graduate scheme."

Sam Goble (Graduate 2016)

"Following two consecutive summer internships working on the nuclear propulsion side of the submarines business, I had acquired a strong appreciation for cutting-edge technology in the defence sector. Over half of the graduating Mechanical Engineering cohort from Imperial College will walk into finance and consulting in the city, the other half look for exciting and satisfying work in environments of engineering excellence. I was looking for the latter, and that began with searching for an accredited graduate scheme. I grew up in Poole, so discovering the breadth of work ATLAS are involved in and then subsequently securing my place on the graduate scheme was a convenient and fitting end to my graduate career hunt."

Keenan Pratt (Graduate 2016)

"I am a Graduate Project Manager at AEUK. Predominantly I manage the Research and Development Projects in Submarine Systems Division, in addition to projects for both UK and overseas customers. The job is extremely interesting, varied and gives you exposure to almost all areas of the business. This involves meeting with the various teams across the projects, planning, monitoring progress, financials and reporting. Ultimately I am responsible for ensuring my projects run to time, cost and quality – therefore, anything involved in achieving this, I do. Beyond the ‘day job’, I also manage the graduate project, which is a company funded project that forms a large part of the graduate scheme, where graduates develop something new and innovative."
