Construction accounts for about 10% of the UK’s employment and is the sign of a healthy economy. Simply put, construction is the process of building. This could be housing, commercial, infrastructure or offsite manufacturing (think 3D printing).
When people think of construction jobs, many people may immediately think of trades like carpentry, drylining (plaster work), electrics and plumbing. While these are well paying and rewarding trades, there are other disciplines such as quantity
surveying, project management, site management, technical design, engineering, community investment and business administration, that are often overlooked.
