VINCI Construction UK

Vinci have been a proud partner of the DofE since 2010 and offer their young employees company-wide the opportunity to do their Gold DofE.

VINCI Construction UK designs, builds and manages the facilities that improve everyday life; the systems that transport us and the buildings in which we live and work. Its business is diverse, covering building, civil engineering, facilities management, and technological testing and development.

The VINCI Group has a turnover of €40.3b and employs 191,000 people in 100 countries around the world. The UK is VINCI’s second largest operating area with a turnover of around £1.9b, and 4,000 employees.

Every team member plays a role in creating and maintaining a structural landscape and future for Britain.

It really believes in the skills the DofE develops in young people and encourages any young person that takes up the DofE to finish their programme and progress through the levels.

Young people employed by VINCI Construction UK can expect a career, job satisfaction and personnel development. What’s more, they work alongside the most determined teams in the industry.

VINCI Construction UK knows that not all young people have the chance to do their Gold DofE and so it supports a number of young recruits from across the business to do their Gold DofE. Since its partnership started with the DofE, 63 young employees have achieved their Gold DofE Award.

“Through participation in their Gold DofE, we have seen our employees become better team players, develop effective decision making skills and develop into effective leaders. The DofE provides participants with unrivalled exposure to experiences that really benefits confidence levels and provides a solid foundation for career development within our organisation. Also, the DofE allows us to have a really positive impact on the communities we work and live in. During our four-year relationship with the DofE, our employees have volunteered more than 3,000 hours. Our commitment to the DofE remains as strong today as when we first commenced, but now we are reaping the rewards from our employees who have achieved their Gold Awards and are demonstrating the benefits they have gained every day, both in work and outside.”
