Company

THIS IS WHERE IT STARTS.

We are more than construction. Every day, our projects change the way the world looks and improve the way it works. And because we do more, you will too.

Challenge yourself, and you’ll do truly impressive work. Control your career, and you’ll grow like never before. Explore our business, and you’ll enjoy a richer experience. And we’ll support you all the way.

AFFINITY NETWORKS

Everybody has a place here and our Affinity Networks give you a voice. They help you fulfil your potential and for Balfour Beatty to take meaningful actions for everyone. Like the work that we do, our people are diverse and we celebrate this.

We have four employee-led networks.

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. They help us spot and break down barriers to enable more people with disabilities to join us and thrive. They’re also a big part of our work to raise awareness and understanding of mental health issues.

Gender Equality

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.
