SRR prepares to employ new crew of veterans

June 21, 2017 GMT

Savannah River Remediation 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 – also known as STEM – to non-STEM-related positions, depending on the veteran’s degree of study.

SRR continues to add more veterans to its ranks, providing them with competitive pay, mentorship, training and in some cases, college credit toward their degrees.

SRR Veteran Co-Op Coordinator and retired Army Lt. Col. 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.

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.
