Balfour Beatty

Balfour Beatty is a global infrastructure group and for over 100 years has created and cared for the vital assets that enable societies and economies to grow, including road and rail; airports, tunnels, and bridges; health and education facilities; heat, light, power, and water; places to live and work.

There are a huge range of roles across Balfour Beatty – designers, planners, engineers, builders, project and facilities managers, analysts, consultants and more.

Balfour Beatty’s Construction Services UK division employees, who are under the age of 25, all have the opportunity to do their Gold DofE programmes because it truly values personal and career development.

Balfour Beatty invests in the DofE and respects those who have already achieved it because it can see the important role it plays in giving young people the confidence and skills to be the leaders of tomorrow.

“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 DofE 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.”
