Aiken, S.C. - Savannah River Remediation (SRR) is actively looking for U.S. military veterans who are also full-time students enrolled in Central Savannah River Area schools to become members of the company’s Veteran Cooperative Program.
The SRR Veteran Co-Op Program began in 2014, offering part-time positions in fields ranging from Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) to non-STEM related positions, depending on the veteran’s degree of study. SRR continues to add more veterans to its ranks, providing the veterans with competitive pay, mentorship, training, and in some cases, college credit toward their degrees.
SRR Veteran Co-Op Coordinator and retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Scott Brown said watching each veteran grow in his or her position at SRR is what keeps him motivated to continue running the program each year.
“The Veteran Cooperative Program is unique in the way that it facilitates hiring highly trainable and motivated employees while benefiting the veterans by walking beside them on new career paths,” Brown said. “Many of our veterans have done so well in the program that, upon graduation, were offered full-time positions with SRR.”
SRR is currently accepting applications online at http://aecom.jobs/jobs/ until June 22, 2017.
SRR is composed of a team of companies led by AECOM with partners Bechtel National, CH2M, and BWX Technologies. Critical subcontractors for the contract are AREVA, Atkins, and AECOM Technical Services.
