The recruitment drive comes on the back of an increase in workload across several sectors.

In particular, the company said, there will be a focus on construction and infrastructure contracts, including commercial building in London and projects for health and pharmaceutical clients, as well as across the road, rail, utilities and energy sectors.

“With more focus on infrastructure investment, we have seen our visible pipeline of new work growing strongly during the last nine months, giving us increased confidence about the future,” said Mike Putnam, president and CEO of Skanska UK.

“Having the right people with the right skills in the right numbers is therefore 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.”

Skanska currently has 5,000 employees in the UK and had revenues last year of £1.2bn.
