People development

In Skanska we have people development at heart – when you grow as a person, we develop as a company.

Our belief is that you grow a lot through real experience – having the right position, supported by an excellent leader providing you with challenging tasks and regular feedback.

At Skanska, no matter if you are a specialist or a leader, you will be encouraged to grow by exploring new positions. Thanks to our presence in several home markets and operations in several areas, you can broaden your experience by pursuing a variety of different careers that meet your personal interest and strengths. Go explore a whole new country or take on a new role in your current office.

You will also learn from collaborating with your colleagues – potentially having a mentor, taking part of a network or proactively asking for feedback and advice. Last but not least, training will provide you with important building blocks on which learning is built.
