Our apprentice programme gives you a great opportunity to gain a recognised academic or vocational qualification from college while you're employed full-time at Skanska.

Why is Skanska the natural choice for you?

You’ll learn on the job, but our formal apprenticeship scheme gives you the opportunity to gain a valuable qualification while working with us and earning a salary. Once you’re qualified, we’ll also build you a structured career path to help you realise your potential.
