Go Construct Launched to Promote Construction Careers

The construction industry has launched Go Construct, a new three-year campaign to encourage people to consider a career in construction.

The campaign, which was developed with more than 400 construction employers, schools, colleges, local government organisations and those with a passion for constructions, aims to promote the construction industry as a successful career option and provide a single portal for accessing careers information. In the future it will also offer a careers brokerage service which will look to match suitable entrants with employers and job vacancies.

The Go Construct website contains careers advice and materials for parents, careers advisers and schools as well as a range of practical resources for employers. The information for employers includes:

Recruiting an apprentice
Providing work experience opportunities
Recruiting ex-military staff
Engaging with schools and colleges
Engaging with the Construction Ambassadors

Go Construct, which is facilitated by CITB, is inviting employers to get involved with the development of the website and its resources. There will be industry consultations during November 2015 to develop the next phase of the campaign and, if you are not already involved in the co-design process, then you can contact the Go Construct project team.

You can register to download the following resources to show your support for the campaign including:

• Posters
