Getting Into Construction

Construction is for everyone

The industry currently employs over 200,000 women across the UK, and there are plans to increase these numbers even more in the coming years. The industry is also diversifying in terms of capability, with Building Information Modelling (BIM), CAD, AI and other incredible technologies pushing the industry forward in leaps and bounds. No matter what you want to specialise in, there are thousands of opportunities for people of all ages, levels and backgrounds.

There’s fantastic earning potential

The average salary in construction management is £81,609 according to the latest survey by RICS, making this one of the best-paid professions across 42 disciplines. Of course, you’ll need to work hard to get there, but construction remains one of the few industries where hard work really can lead to fast progression and where you can start at the bottom and work your way up. Plus, construction as a whole finished last year as the second-highest earning sector for individuals in Great Britain – not bad at all.
