Construction is one of the biggest industries in the UK, employing around 7% of our workforce, which is about two million people. There are a huge range of jobs available, from bricklayers, carpenters and decorators, to electricians and plumbers. Skilled trades people are in demand to work on large scale building projects and will always be needed to improve our homes and the buildings we see around us.
Construction never stands still and neither will your career, whether you're starting out in trainee construction jobs or looking for your next challenge. You will find lots of opportunities to build your skills while making a good living, with the industry set to need more and more skilled people in future. Over a third of people in the industry run their own company or are self-employed.
Our students have gone on to work on national projects, set up their own businesses or work on projects abroad.
