Apprentice Programme 2017 – Administrator

Skanska, a leading construction company and developer, is an inclusive and responsible business that is helping to build a better society. Known for major projects like the Gherkin and Crossrail, we are creating, upgrading and maintaining the country’s buildings and infrastructure. Drawing on our Scandinavian heritage, we are green, innovative and progressive. We bring together people and technology, helping to make our industry safer and more collaborative.

Joining us as an apprentice Administrator in the Somerset Vehicle Workshops, you will take responsibility for various administrative duties, including raising sales invoices for Somerset County Council and all other clients, processing and filing of fitters’ timesheets and compiling financial reports for month end. We are looking for an individual able to learn quickly with excellent communication skills, good overall computer literacy and attention to detail.

You will be supported to achieve an NVQ Level 3 in Business Administration through a local college. For this, you will be required to hold 3 GCSEs at grade 9 to 4 (or equivalent A* to C), including Maths and English. Although no experience is required, you will have a desire to learn and will want to help shape the future and build for a better society. The role is in a fast-paced, customer-orientated environment so being self-motivated and the ability to work well under pressure are key skills.

You’ll have the opportunity to care for people and the environment, to be accountable for future generations, and to not only foster an inclusive culture where we are open and fair, showing trust and respect for one another, but also one where everyone can speak their mind. Are you ready to build for a better society?

Programme start date: September 2017

We call it Naturally Skanska.
