Life brings exciting, emotional and challenging experiences.

At Kier, we believe that it’s important to give our people the time and support they need when they need it, from welcoming new family members, grieving after a pregnancy loss or managing menopause symptoms. 

Our enhanced family friendly policies have been introduced to support our people during important, life-changing moments. 

Maternity/paternity leave

Once you've worked at Kier for 26 weeks or more, you can benefit from 26 weeks of maternity leave at full pay.  And if you're taking paternity leave, you'll benefit from eight weeks' leave at full pay if you've worked at Kier for 26 weeks or more.

We can offer flexibility on when you can take the leave so you can best support your family and enjoy spending time with your new arrival in a way that suits you.

This is one of the ways Kier supports our people to balance work and family life.
