Multi-Cultural

We’re working to improve the representation of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people across Balfour Beatty, and provide fair access to leadership roles. Our Multi-Cultural network helps the business understands cultural experiences and provides an open platform for employees to bring their own unique perspective to the development of the business’s working culture. Its members raise awareness and support events, and help us identify and remove any barriers that might be holding back their peers from flourishing here.

Ability

As a Disability Confident company, we’re always looking for new ways to become more accessible for disabled people. This is where our Ability network comes in.

Men and women from across our business are working together to create a more diverse and inclusive construction sector by arranging events and sharing experiences which encourages gender equality. Our employees are not only driving the business and industry towards a balanced workforce, but also role models for the next generation thinking of a career in construction.

REWARDS & BENEFITS

As if contributing to and supporting work that makes life better for millions wasn’t rewarding enough, we offer a full range of benefits too. You’ll have the freedom to shape the package that’s right for you and your life.

Here are some of our key benefits:
