In autumn 2013 Lagan Construction Group achieved the Investors in People Gold Status. The Investors in People Standard tells you what good people management looks like. Defined and set by business leaders, it’s a series of 39 must-haves that organisations measure up against, to find and realise the potential of their people. In addition, we have also been nominated as Investors in People Champions.
The standard recognises our commitment to developing our people and shows our ambition, drive and focus to the rest of the world.

Fake job offers
Employers and individuals are currently being troubled by fraudsters offering fake job offers. Please be assured that Lagan Construction Group always conducts a formal recruitment process which includes carrying out an interview before making a job offer to anyone. If you receive an email offering you a job with us, it is not genuine and you should not respond to it.
We NEVER ask anyone to complete a questionnaire, e-mail anyone a job offer or ask anyone for money in receipt of a job offer. If you do receive a job offer via email or Linked In that seems to come from Lagan Construction Group please do not be fooled – it is fake.
Recognising a fake job offer
Fake jobs offers will have some of the following features:
- Be issued from a Google, Hotmail, Yahoo or other Internet hosted account.
- If you do receive a job offer by e-mail which appears to be from Lagan Construction Group don’t use the Reply button – please retype the address manually and if the address changes then it is likely to be a fraud.
- A request for your passport details, or any other personal or banking information
- Payment for a visa application
- A mobile telephone number, often starting with +44 (0) 70.
Please don’t be fooled by fraudsters issuing unsolicited job offers. They will use photographs and names of company employees to create a genuine appearance to the offer. They have been known to create fake company names and websites that look very similar to the company’s identity, brand and website in order to commit this type of fraud.
If you receive a job offer for a role that you have not applied for and are in any doubt please contact us directly on either of the following options: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
