Here at Balfour Beatty, our people care about their work and their customers. But they care about each other even more. Our returners programme is designed to support you if you have had a career break.

Our paid programme offers you the chance to develop your professional career, whilst also giving you the time to adjust back into a work environment. You’ll receive support and advice from a mentor/buddy within the business, as well as the support and training through our trusted third-party partner. Our fully trained line managers will support your transition back into the workplace and help you concentrate on what you do best.

We are ideally looking for people who have previously worked in the following areas at all levels:

  • Engineering– civil, mechanical, electrical or design
  • Operational – operatives, construction managers / supervisors, project managers, planners, BIM coordinators or BIM managers
  • Commercial – quantity surveyors or commercial managers
  • Head office – human resources, IT, health and safety, finance or legal

So, think bigger, take control of your career and join our returners community to hear about future programmes straight to your inbox.
