Skanska, established in 1887, is an industry leading project development and construction group. Operating in Europe and the US, our £1.7bn UK business has worked on major projects including Thameslink, Crossrail, M25 and the Gherkin.

In building, upgrading, and maintaining the country’s transportation infrastructure, we are currently delivering small to large-scale complex projects for Network Rail, HS2 and Highways England.

Drawing on our Scandinavian heritage, we are green, innovative and progressive. We bring together people and technology, as part of our objective to make construction a safer, more collaborative and efficient industry.

  • Skanska is extremely proud to be supporting The Big Rail Diversity Challenge and Women in Rail.

    We believe that to be truly diverse we must be an inclusive organisation – one that mirrors the societies in which we work. The challenge is to take a different look at how to create an environment where women can thrive through their careers. During the last couple of years, Skanska has progressed in gender representation, supporting flexible working and in creating a more inclusive environment.

    However, we also recognise that there is much more work to do.

    We must think every day about what the barriers are, and what needs to change in order to make the rail industry, and Skanska, an attractive place where women, and all under-represented groups, want to develop their careers.
