Rewards and benefits

You can be sure at Skanska we enjoy good salaries, a generous holiday entitlement, competitive pension and other benefits as well as a rewarding working environment. So if you’re looking for a genuinely fulfilling career with a business that places its strong ethical approach at the heart of everything that it does, we’re looking for people like you.


We recognise the importance of balancing work with family life. We support our people in achieving this, with maternity and paternity leave, access to childcare vouchers and the support to accommodate changes in your circumstances.

Lend a hand

We want to make a positive difference to the communities that we work in. This is why we give our people a day off every year to support a cause of their choice, as part of our ‘lend a hand’ volunteering scheme.

Building talent

We want our people to be the best they can be and support them every step of the way. We create tailored learning and development plans to continually build on an individual’s skills and strengths. This includes mentoring, training courses and opportunities to work abroad.


We are committed to building a safe, happy and healthy community and we have a range of programmes in place to support this. Our Injury-Free Environment programme, subsidised gym membership and employee assistance programme are just some of the things we have in place to ensure our people stay healthy in all areas of their life.


We offer saving and investment programmes that help our people plan for the future and achieve their personal financial goals. This includes our award-winning employee ownership programme, which provides employees with the opportunity to add to their future savings, by becoming company shareholders.


We offer subsidised gym memberships, days out, high street retail deals, employee offers and other schemes. All of which allow our people to try new experiences with their family and friends during their free time.
