Become a Skanska natural

The journey for all early careers roles begins online with your application, followed by some online assessments and a short interview over the phone. If you’re successful, we will invite you in for an assessment centre. The process aims to assess your skills and judgement to ensure Skanska is the right move for you and that you fit our values and ethos.

Online application
Submit your up-to-date CV, and answer a few of our basic screening questions. The time it takes for us to respond to your application can vary but we aim to respond within one month of the advert closing date.

Online assessments
You will be asked to complete a series of short online assessments:

Situational Judgement Assessment: You’ll read scenarios and decide how you might respond to them. These are not timed.

Ability Assessments: You’ll complete numerical and/or verbal reasoning assessments. These are timed.

Online assessments can be daunting. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any worries or feel there is something that would enable you to perform at your best.

Take the time to practice. https://practicetests.cubiks.com/

Video interview

Assessment Day / Interview Day
You’ll be invited to one of our offices or sites where you will meet our team, get to know the working environment, and have the opportunity to ask questions. As part of the day, you will also complete a group exercise and an interview.
Feedback and offer
We’ll let you know the outcome within 7-10 days from attending an Assessment Day or an Interview, and offer you some feedback.
