Graduate Programme 2017 - Construction Supervisor

Skanska, a leading construction company and developer, is an inclusive and responsible business that is helping to build a better society. Known for major projects like the Gherkin and Crossrail, we are creating, upgrading and maintaining the country’s buildings and infrastructure. Drawing on our Scandinavian heritage, we are green, innovative and progressive. We bring together people and technology, helping to make our industry safer and more collaborative.

Joining us as a Graduate Construction Supervisor, you will support the delivery of work areas, in accordance with company procedures, programme requirements and project specifications. Your responsibilities will involve monitoring and supporting the supervision of trade-contractors as well as the labour and material requirements for the contract. You will ensure the operatives are working to the latest programme of works, are signed up to the relevant method statements and check they understand what is required. You will also be involved with quality and compliance and asked to log and resolve any defects or defaults found and challenge the current methodology by putting forward innovative ideas.

Educated to 2:1 degree level, having completed a BSc or MSc in a construction related subject that is accredited by the CIOB, you’ll have a strong passion for the construction industry. You’ll be naturally analytical, confident in problem solving and have excellent commercial awareness. Above all, you’ll adhere to our ethics and values in everything you do, building strong relationships and working with high standards and sustainable choices in mind. We expect all graduates to be flexible with regards to location and be prepared to relocate during the programme if required.

You’ll have the opportunity to care for people and the environment, to be accountable for future generations, and to not only foster an inclusive culture where we are open and fair, showing trust and respect for one another, but also one where everyone can speak their mind. Are you ready to build for a better society?

The UK Government have taken steps to reduce net migration to the UK by limiting the number of overseas workers from outside the EEA coming to the UK for employment. Please note that whilst we are able to consider applications from overseas workers from outside the EEA (who require a Tier 2 (General) visa) we can only employ them if we can provide evidence that there are no other suitable candidates for this vacancy from inside the EEA.
