The programme was designed to to put business leaders of global corporations, the coaches, face to face with diverse young talent, the coaches, to learn how to lead and engage individuals of different backgrounds and create an inclusive and inspiring work climate in times of business growth and change. For Arrival Network participants, the coachees, the 9-month leadership development programme designed to support them to achieve some of their goals and understand how to implement leadership into their personal and professional practices. 

It was as participating as a coachee that Ibrahim was offered graduate schemes at 3

When it came down to choosing between the 3 companies, Ibrahim says the decision was easy:

“Through my work with [my coach] Ross, what came across was that Skanska care for their employees and the quality of their work. The way Skanska conduct their work is admirable and I felt an inclusive vibe from the beginning. The Leading with Purpose programme offered me a chance to really understand the company. That’s why I chose Skanska.”

Skanska hired 3 participants into graduate roles from Ibrahim’s cohort alone.
