Balfour Beatty, a leading international infrastructure group, is excited to launch the Balfour Beatty Returners Programme 2019.

What are they offering?

The Balfour Beatty Returners Programme will run for 21 weeks from 28 January 2019, with a view to successful candidates joining the business in permanent roles. This paid programme will offer support to help the transition back to work via coaching workshops from Women Returners and ongoing support from a dedicated Balfour Beatty mentor.

You will be working on one of Balfour Beatty’s flagship projects if you are site based in a technical role or within one of their Head Offices if the role is more functional. You should be available for the duration of the programme and part-time and flexible working may be available. Whilst the role will be based at a corporate office or a fixed project location, you should be flexible on travel for coaching and other workshops.
