Roles

Office-based Careers

Did you know nearly 50% of construction careers are office-based?

Over 200 types of job roles for construction are advertised each year in Essex alone, ranging from administrators and procurement assistants through to contract managers and designers. With construction becoming an increasingly tech-led industry, new opportunities are emerging every day, and it comes as no surprise that nearly half of all roles now don’t involve working on site.

Office-based Careers

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. Plus, construction as a whole finished last year as the second-highest earning sector for individuals in Great Britain – not bad at all.
