Training and development

Our business is constantly changing and evolving. So are our customer’s challenges. We need to stay ahead of the knowledge curve. We take professional development extremely seriously, and we expect our people to do the same.

We provide access to the resources and the support you need to keep your professional skills up to date and to gain the most relevant accreditations.

Developing our people

Chris Jones“The people at BAM are our greatest asset. So developing each of them to their full potential is crucial to the success of our business.”

Chris Jones
Director of Learning & Development


If you join us as a trainee or graduate, we provide a comprehensive training programme that gives you a thorough introduction to the construction industry, as well as developing professional skills for your future career.

We actively encouraged professional development for all our people, including supporting employees to achieve membership of a relevant professional body.

We invest in all our managers, to give them the soft skills they need to manage people effectively. We deliver a range of programmes for managers at all levels – from the essentials of management to strategic leadership – to support our policy of promoting from within.

Each business unit produces annual training plans covering safety, environmental management, IT and technical subjects, as well as personal development.

As well as traditional classroom-based delivery, we are introducing a more flexible approach to training through our e-learning portal and growing library of computer-based courses.

Our people are increasingly using the BAM Intranet and social media for sharing knowledge and learning, as well as taking part in regular national conferences and workshops where employees from different regions exchange ideas and good practice.
 

Diversity and inclusion

We want to have a diverse workforce of people from a range of cultural backgrounds and life experiences.  We think that makes us a better, more creative business and helps us to understand our customers and the communities where we work.
