About this event

You’ll have access to some of the most exciting jobs in construction and the built environment including the jobs and training in the sustainable construction sector – like installing solar, heat pumps and fitting insulation to make sure our homes contribute to reducing carbon emissions.

We’ll have talks and the opportunity to connect with Women in Construction, who specialise in supporting women into well paid, good jobs in the industry. Hear their stories about how to get ahead.

Watch the demos, have a go at immersive learning with our latest headsets and learn about the opportunities to support the heritage crafts building sector – from the people who maintain the UK’s grandest buildings.

Employers will be advertising live opportunities including Kickstart Paid Placements, Apprenticeships, Jobs and work placements to help you get your foot in the door.

Find out about all the different skills and areas of work in the built environment and construction, where and how you can get qualified to get started in a career that can take you around the world, or get a job local to you. Often described as a job for life, the need for construction and built environment workers continues to boom.
