Amey is one of the top five support services suppliers in the UK. We maintain the UK’s road and rail infrastructure, keep schools tidy, manage the UK’s defence estate, keep prisons and courts secure.

All of this is underpinned by our leading consulting capabilities which uses engineering design and data analytics to better manage the services we all use and rely on. We’re supplying important utilities like water, gas and electricity to your homes.

We’re making journeys better by maintaining roads, railways and airports. We’re keeping facilities running smoothly, and improving social housing and schools. We’re keeping environments clean by improving sustainable waste management. And we’re supporting the country’s defence and justice services.

And it’s not just people in the UK we’re helping. Our work throughout the US, Middle East and Australia means people around the world are benefiting from what we do. Because we’re owned by Ferrovial – a global infrastructure and services group – we’re growing on an international scale.

We believe in creating a sustainable future for the communities we operate in. Our Social Value Plan aims to stimulate action across our business and inspire our people.

As a large company, we have a responsibility and opportunity to leave a positive impact on people and on the environment through everything we do – together.

Career

We’re all originals here and our individuality is an asset. We have unique backgrounds and personalities, which means we all bring different ideas to the table. But we do have one thing in common: we all take personal pride in our public service.

Our most important task each day is to look out for each other and keep each other safe. That’s what it means to be part of a team here and that’s how important we all are to each other. Whether it’s working on the biggest bridge in the country, learning to get to grips with the latest technology, or just working with a great group of people every day, you’ll find what gets you out of bed in the morning at Amey.
