Why is Skanska
the natural choice for you?

Trainees and apprentices

Our school and college leaver programmes give you a great opportunity to gain a recognised academic or vocational qualification from a college or university, while you’re employed full-time at Skanska.


On-the-job training gives you the chance to earn while you learn. As a trainee you’ll study for a part-time college or university course financed by Skanska , while earning a salary. You’ll be able to study for a BTEC/HNC or HND qualification, usually through a day-release study programme.


You’ll learn on the job, but our formal apprenticeship scheme gives you the opportunity to gain a valuable qualification at college while working with us and earning a salary. Once you’re qualified, we’ll also build you a structured career path to help you realise your potential.
