Skanska welcomes ex-military personnel to its head office in Hertfordshire.

Recruitment event for service leavers

At an event held on 9 May, service leavers from the RAF, Navy and Army joined Skanska’s resourcing team and a number of representative from across the business to discuss current job opportunities for project managers.

Working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP), which helps companies to source candidates from all parts of the military, attendees were given an insight into what Skanska does.  They were also given the opportunity to speak to its employees about what it’s like to work for Skanska and the roles available.

Skanska’s Head of Resourcing, Mary Goodey, said: “Some key skills acquired in the military are closely linked to those needed in the construction industry.

“Skanska is recruiting for 1,500 new roles over the next two to three years, so attracting the right people with the right skills is critical.”

Skanska will be holding another event focusing on roles for Mechanical and Electrical Engineers on 9 July.
