    BuildForce Construction Insight Event

    10:30 amExeter

    The Insight Day will focus on local construction pipeline opportunities with major contractors, supported by Building Plymouth. This is a great opportunity to discuss required skills, training and to find out more about what the industry has to offer, including roles such as project manager, designer, mechanical and electrical engineers, quantity surveyors, estimators, health and safety, QA, tradesmen, civil engineering and supporting roles. A job in construction isn’t just about being on the tools, it is accessible to all ranks and skill sets, and offers real potential for career progression.

    As well as providing an insight into career pathways in the construction industry, we will run workshops to provide industry advice on CV’s, interview preparation and using social media effectively.

    BuildForce is a collaborative industry-led programme, part-funded by the CITB, with an objective to reduce skills gaps in construction whilst offering a second career to Military personnel. We connect the Military community to construction careers through a UK-wide BuildForce Alliance of employers, industry bodies and charities, supported by the Government and working in partnership with The Royal Foundation.

    BuildForce isn’t a recruitment agency, we offer a much more personal service; connecting ex-Military personnel with the construction sector via our mentoring programme, offering 1-2-1 support and career advice, arranging work placements and identifying job opportunities.
