Construction firm Skanska is to create around 1,500 jobs in the UK during the next two to three years, to help with the completion of major rail, water, building and roads contracts won by the company.

Skanska will be increasing its workforce in a range of sectors. There will be a focus on construction and infrastructure contracts in particular, including commercial building in London and projects for health and pharmaceutical clients, as well as across the road, rail, utilities and energy sectors.

Mike Putnam, president and chief executive officer at Skanska UK, says: “Having the right people, with the right skills, in the right numbers is a priority for us. We are accelerating our recruitment activity significantly across all our operations, to fill roles at all levels of the company and in many parts of the UK.”

The news is a further boost to construction sector, coming on the same day that Prime Minister David Cameron announces that £36bn of planned investment into UK infrastructure for 2014/15 could support more than 150,000 construction jobs, and many thousands more in other sectors.
