What is the future for women in construction? Did you know that women represent only 11% of the Construction workforce in the UK? With most of these being office based jobs, much like our office here at Site Equip! Here are some ways we feel we should do to encourage a future for women in construction…..
1. Make more people aware of the opportunities that are available! With a huge range of creative jobs in construction, which are here in the UK and abroad, the construction industry needs our input ladies!
2. Construction is also a great way to do some good! Lots of UK charities often go abroad to help the less fortunate helping to build schools and homes, this is a positive way for women to get involved and learn new skills. It’s also a great way to see the world!
3. Promote more women already in the Industry! Our office here at Site Equip is mainly female based, in a male dominated industry, we girls do just fine! It’s important we give other women considering a career in construction, an example they can identify with to help build the future for women in construction.
4. Get involved in the #notjustforboys government campaign. Destroy the myth that the construction industry is just for men, help to raise awareness to more women of the options available, and give them the confidence to pursue a career in construction.
