Careers in Construction

The NHBC Foundation would like parents to encourage their children to join the building trade.

NHBC chief executive Mike Quinton said: “House-building is a hugely rewarding career which offers good salaries, great opportunities and creates a legacy which will last for generations.

“Parents play a major role in influencing and informing their children about future career choices. We hope that our new online film encourages more parents and young people to consider a career in one of the UK’s most thriving and successful industries.

“With demand for high-quality new houses at high levels, there has never been a better time to begin a career in house-building.”

Indeed, I was reading a report only last week that said the shortage of bricklayers will mean that they will earn more than an Architect!
