ANOTHER BRICK
WITH MORE THAN 150 ROLES TO
CHOOSE FROM, THERE'S SOMETHING FOR
EVERYONE IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

T

here's more to
construction than
hard hats, boots
and high-vis
jackets. With more
than two million
people in various
construction jobs, the industry is one of
the biggest and most diverse in the UK.
And with a drive to build more homes
to make up for the housing shortage, a
lot more people will be needed.
The Construction Industry Training
Board says there are more than 150
types of roles in this field - that's a lot
of career opportunities. These include
technical and analytic positions,
physical jobs, plus roles in planning,
procurement and health and safety.

PRESSING NEED

According to the CITB, the industry
needs 36,000 new recruits per year from
2017 to 2021. In some areas - such as
wood trades and interior fit-out - the
need for new workers is acute. There is
also the ongoing challenge of replacing
an ageing workforce, which will be more
pressing if Brexit stems the flow of
workers from abroad.
Construction is a constantly
changing industry that's always

creating new challenges. If you're
prepared to work hard, there are plenty
of opportunities to move up the career
ladder. You can develop skills and
knowledge as you work too, as there is
lots of on-the-job training available.
One great reason to get into the
construction industry is the sense of
achievement helping to shape the
world around you brings. You'll be part
of the essential work that helps to drive

Apprenticeships
are highly
valued by
employers
the country's economy forward,
constructing a huge range of buildings
and infrastructure, including houses,
schools and hospitals, roads,
motorways and train stations, and
large investment projects such as
big-name stadiums and skyscrapers.
Your career path is likely to be varied
and may well change as you begin to
specialise. You may start as a labourer,
for example, then go into carpentry or

plumbing. You could even end up
running your own business - more
than one-third of people working in
construction are their own boss.

ON-THE-JOB TRAINING

Vocational training has long been the
most common route into the industry.
You don't necessarily need formal
qualifications - you can start as a
labourer and work your way up.
Alternatively, you can become an
apprentice. Apprenticeships combine
off-the-job learning with on-site
experience, allowing you to learn the
skills for your role while working
towards the qualifications you need to
rise up the ranks. Apprenticeships are
highly valued by employers and are
very successful within this industry,
where practical experience matters.
You need to be in full-time
employment with a construction
company to be able to complete an
apprenticeship, so you are earning
as you learn. Apprenticeships
are offered at craft, technical and
higher levels, so you can continue
to progress your career (see page
64 for more information).
You can also study for national
vocational qualifications (NVQs) or
