About this Event

In this event series, will give you the opportunity to learn about the wide range of career opportunities for women in the sector and hear from women in various roles about their journeys and what they love about working in construction. So, whether you're just commencing your career or looking to change your career, this is a great opportunity to find out what construction & the built environment has to offer you and how your existing skills such as teamwork, problem-solving, planning & organising can be utilised.

Covid- 19 has hit many sectors hard resulting in a number of redundancies. Many will now be considering a change of career.

In part one of the MCA Women in Construction event series, you will hear from a number of women working in the construction & built environment about what attracted them to the sector and what they love about it- the camaraderie and variety.

Construction is continuing and offers a wide range of career opportunities. There are over 150 different roles in construction and it’s not all about working outside and the muddy boots, there are many office-based roles or roles that are part office, part site-based. No matter where you start in construction, there are opportunities to progress and develop. In this webinar, you will hear from some women as to how they have progressed.

1 of our role models said that there isn’t a better time to join construction than now.

The construction industry accounts for 6% of UK’s Gross Domestic Product with average weekly earnings of £635.66 (Dec 18) ref Construction stats ONS 2018.
