As part of our Graduate programme, you will have a clearly defined learning pathway to develop your technical and soft skills. You will build a strong professional network with exposure to our leaders and gain project management and technical skills for the future through completing a digitalisation project. You will also spend a week away completing a practical skills workshop to gain a wider understanding of the Construction industry.


We offer placements for eight-weeks over the summer or a year-out that will give you a great chance to find out more about your chosen profession – and Skanska – before you apply for a full-time role with us.
