Our pledge to DofE Award holders
- We believe The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award makes young people more employable and better prepares them for work.
- We believe the DofE develops young people’s leadership, problem-solving, self-management and teamworking skills which are attributes essential to the future of our business.
- We look favourably on young recruits with DofE Awards in our recruitment process.
What we do
We are a global infrastructure group and for more than 100 years we have created and cared for the vital assets that enable societies and economies to grow: road and rail; airports, seaports, tunnels and bridges; health and education facilities; heat, light, power and water; places to live and places to work – the infrastructure that underpins all our lives and drives progress.
There are a huge range of roles across Balfour Beatty (designers, planners, engineers, builders, project and facilities managers, analysts, consultants and more).
Our Construction Services UK division employees under the age of 25 all have the opportunity to do their Gold DofE programmes because we truly value personal and career development.
We invest in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and respect those who have already achieved it, because we can see the important role it plays in giving you the confidence and skills to be the leaders of tomorrow.
