Skanska to create 1,500 jobs to fulfil contracts

Skanska has announced plans to create around 1,500 jobs in the UK over the next two to three years. The jobs will be required to complete major water, rail, building and roads contracts that it won, said the construction company.

The company said it is "looking forward to a period of planned growth and expansion", which will be fuelled by a focus on construction and infrastructure contracts. This includes commercial building in London and projects for health and pharmaceutical clients, as well as across the road, rail, utilities and energy sectors.

A spokesperson for the company was unable to say what number of roles will be required for its water projects.

Mike Putnam, president and CEO of Skanska UK, explained: “With more focus on infrastructure investment, we have seen our visible pipeline of new work growing strongly during the last nine months, giving us increased confidence about the future.

"Having the right people with the right skills in the right numbers is therefore a priority for us. We are accelerating our recruitment activity significantly across all our operations, to fill roles at all levels of the company and in many parts of the UK.”
