Progress of Corporate Partners Scheme Vacation Work Applications

Last updated: 2019-03-27 08:23:11


AECOM's graduate application process is handled centrally, so those students will have their applications passed to their Recruitment team, who will contact you to let you know your application has been received.

For summer placements, this is handled locally. The Chesterfield Bridges team is already fully-subscribed for summer placements. They will however make those CVs available for other teams in the Chesterfield office for students who have expressed a local preference, and will make best efforts to pass CVs along for those students who have expressed interest in other locations. Due to the number of applications, it is likely that only those students selected for interview for a possible placement will be contacted.

For students who have applied for Year in Industry placements, AECOM will review CVs in the New Year and, again, will contact students directly. These few students should also receive a direct response, including a generic response email before Xmas.
