Junior Communications Consultant 2024

Type: Trainee
Region: South West

The UK government has made a pledge to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 and, as such, is pushing ahead with significant investment in nuclear and renewable energies.

Assystem, as a leading provider of project management, design & construction supervision services within the nuclear industry, has aligned its own strategy to support this switch to low-carbon energy, whilst also recognising transport and infrastructure systems to be a major factor in influencing the outcome of government policy.

By acquiring Schofield Lothian in 2021, Assystem reaffirmed their commitment to the UK’s energy transition in combining strengths with a long-established provider of consultancy services to the transport and infrastructure sectors, through the delivery of sustainable performance improvements within four practice areas: Consents & Engagement; Commercial Management; Project Management; and Environment & Sustainability.

Based on these solid foundations, our Consents team continues to build on its existing capability and has ambitious plans to develop its reach within both the transport & infrastructure sectors and through the additional opportunities offered via the Assystem network within the nuclear sector.

Our objectives will ultimately be defined by our ability to attract and retain those talented individuals that share our vision and wish to join us in shaping the future.
