The business streamlining comes just four months after Katy Dowding was promoted to UK President and CEO of the business, which in August reported strong profit and revenue growth last year.
Executive vice president Martin Neeson, operational efficiency director Andy MacAskill, and communications director Anna Mann have left after many years with the Skanska business.
A spokeswoman for Skanska told the Enquirer that the high-level director departures were unconnected with the broader cost-cutting plan being delivered in the face of challenging market conditions.
“We are proposing to make some changes to our back-office support functions and will be consulting with employees potentially affected.
“It is understandably an unsettling time, and we will do everything that we can to support people through the process in line with our values.
“We do not wish to pre-empt the outcome of the collective consultation process so it would not be right to comment further on the total number of roles potentially affected at this time,” she added.
The Enquirer understands that up to 90 staff have been put at risk just a few week after the UK arm of the Swedish construction group, reported pre-tax profit up nearly 60% to £55m in the year to December 2022.
The spokeswoman added: “While these proposed changes have been driven by the broader challenging market conditions affecting construction, we remain a financially strong business.”
Skanska added that the proposed changes would not impact on project delivery.
