Developing our people

We are passionate about helping our people develop their chosen careers and realise their potential.

Development opportunities

We encourage employees to look for broader development opportunities like secondments, networking forums, transfers between different departments and international placements. They can also gain professional qualifications through on and off-the-job training and educational workshops.

Leadership programmes

Our UK and global leadership programmes are for people at all stages of their careers. This includes those preparing to be line managers, technical experts and senior leaders overseeing strategic programmes.

What we do and the way we do it is important. This is why we have a leadership profile to describe what's expected of our leaders, enabling us to get the best from our people and deliver the best for our customers.

Continuing professional development

We work with professional bodies and support our people to reach the highest levels in their chosen careers, by becoming members of associated bodies.

Support can include financial assistance, through our network of professional people, or by putting a structured framework in place.

We also support continuing professional development, so people continue to grow and lead the way in their chosen fields.

Coaching and mentoring

Mentoring is a big part of our culture. We have an award-nominated formal programme as well as informal mentoring for people at every stage of their career. It enables the transfer of knowledge and experience across Skanska.

We also work with a network of world-class coaches who encourage our people to find new perspectives within themselves.

Technical excellence

We strive to lead the way in the industry. Our technical skills programmes focus on recognised best practice and continuous improvement.
