Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

Skanska is committed to supporting the Armed Forces community and recognises the value serving personnel, Reservists, Veterans and military families bring to our organisation. We strive to support the values of the Armed Forces Covenant in many ways, including:

  • Working with the Armed Forces Family Jobsite and the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to establish a tailored employment pathway for Service spouses and partners and Service leavers
  • Offering a degree of flexibility in granting leave for Service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment
  • Supporting our military families to combine their career and family responsibilities with our flexible working policy
  • Being a leader in people development we offer a variety of training to upskill and benefit your long-term career with us
  • Our competitive benefits package also includes options to buy five additional days of annual leave and a paid volunteer day to support your charity of choice
  • Our five employee networks include Military, Women, LGBT+, Mental Health and Carers & Disability, which provide support for our employees and are open to all.

A career with us means you’ll have the freedom to develop your skills and leave your mark on the communities in which we work. Our competitive benefits package will help to enhance your life outside work, too. 
We thrive through embracing differences, whether they be social backgrounds, ethnicity, disability, gender, age, religion, sexuality and any other protected characteristics. We know that diversity opens a rich potential for new ways of thinking, helping us to build successful and winning teams. We call it Naturally Skanska.
