Women in construction
Did you know, women make up only 11 per cent of the construction industry and only 1 per cent of those are actually workers on site?
This is a shocking statistic, and women should be represented more within the industry. Here is a top five list on why working in the construction industry can be beneficial for you.
The construction industry is a well paid place to work. It is one of the UKs best paying industries. From a financial point of view it is better for a woman to pick a non-gender traditional role than any other job as it pays better.
Love for the job
Sometimes people just really love to build things and put stuff together so if that’s you then this is the best industry for you.
One thing you have to remember about the construction industry is that you are not stuck in one role forever. There is always chance to move on to bigger and better things within the industry. You may be starting out as an apprentice but before you know it you could be site supervisor.
Remember although you may be a brick layer but you can also shadow other members and learn new skills, skills that are transferable. You can use them at home as well as at work.
Leaving a mark
Imagine helping build something that can help shape a skyline or change the way your local town or city looks! Imagine the feeling of joy when you look at something you helped shape and create. Good feeling right? You could have that feeling every day if you work within the construction industry.
