Why the DofE is important to us
We are not only passionate and committed, but we can provide the best platform to develop the next generation of future leaders for our business, offering them the best skills to develop their career paths. We are members of the 5% club which has the aim of ensuring that 5% of our UK workforce are apprentices, graduates or sponsored students on structured programmes within the next five years. Whatever your background, if you share our values of integrity, teamwork, respect and excellence there could be an opportunity at Balfour Beatty for you. We value those who already have their Duke of Edinburgh's Awards, and support our employees if they wish to achieve it because the values you learn through your DofE programme align perfectly with ours. They are values which will set you up for life. A wide range of people who joined us on leaving school or on an apprenticeship programme now hold senior leadership positions in the company.
