What's in it for me?

Plymouth’s construction industry is booming. With major new projects in the pipeline, plus new and innovative designs for buildings and technology developing every day, it’s also an exciting career choice.

Currently employing 3 million people, it’s one of the largest employment industries in the country. However, with the average age of a construction worker in the UK at 55, the industry is looking to fill the gap that will be left by those soon retiring – new workers are desperately needed in the field.

Think construction is all about hard hats and hi-vis? Think again

The world of construction offers many career opportunities, some of which may surprise you. In the next five years, the industry will need non-construction professionals such as IT staff, senior executives, construction supervisors, brick layers, labourers and electricians, to name just a few. With so many career choices available, you can choose a career that suits your interests, skills and aspirations.
