The BoKlok employee promise

Contributing towards a sustainable society

You can contribute to a more sustainable society through the delivery of great value, sustainable new homes and communities.

BoKlok is based around a vision: to build new homes that are accessible for ‘ordinary' people – giving everyone the same opportunity to 'live well'.

It is our aim to deliver high quality homes at accessible prices. To deliver new homes that are not only built more sustainably but homes that enable their future residents to live more sustainably (and as a result more cost effectively) too.

What's more, our schemes are designed with a focus on community. A green heart is at the core of all our developments, offering green areas and community spaces that can be enjoyed and shared by all.

As a BoKlok employee, you will have an opportunity to become a part of this.

Working in a sustainable environment

At BoKlok, you get an opportunity to collaborate in an open culture where healthy values and a committed and passionate team unite, to achieve great results.

Our culture is based on openness and cooperation. All of our employees are involved in creating this culture, by living our values.

Everyone is committed to taking responsibility for their own work and is always striving to improve. Within our framework, you have the freedom to be bold and to drive change, but you remain part of a bigger team, which is always there to support you and to offer guidance if required.

BoKlok is committed to a culture of diversity and inclusion. We have a zero tolerance policy for ethical violations. At BoKlok, we care about each other and make sure everyone feels included. We work actively to be a role model for diversity and inclusion by using our differences as our strength.

"Since joining the BoKlok team, no day has been the same! From working with the interior designers at IKEA to prepare our first ever UK show home to attending sales launches, getting involved in our new website and dealing directly with customers, there is so much variety here.

I definitely appreciate the supportive environment and your Line Manager really takes the time to make sure you are happy and content in your role, while always encouraging you to look ahead at future opportunities. It is an exciting time to be a part of the UK team here and I can’t wait to see what’s next.”

History of BoKlok Show all

  • Who founded BoKlok?

    BoKlok was founded in the mid-1990s when Skanska and IKEA met at a housing fair in Karlskrona in Sweden and started talking about why so few homes were built for people on an ‘ordinary’ income.

    The CEO of Skanska at the time, Melker Schörling, and the founder of IKEA, Ingvar Kamprad, decided to jointly develop a new housing concept that would make more homes accessible to more people – and BoKlok was born!
