Construction is not a job – it’s a career

The construction industry is diverse and offers some of the best career opportunities available. Whether you want to get your hands dirty or work behind the scenes, there is a job – no, a career just waiting for you.

There’s something for everyone

From carpenters, masons, plumbers and electricians to engineers and architects; no matter what your skills and interests, the construction industry offers multiple pathways for training including on-site apprenticeships, college and more.

You can make a difference

Whether you’re adding to a city’s skylines, building infrastructure, building or repairing homes, a career in construction means shaping the world we live in. In the years to come you can look around you with pride and say, “I helped build that.”

The chance to travel the world

The skills you acquire in construction will always be in demand, and you can use them anywhere in the world. This gives you the freedom to choose where you want to work and live.

You won’t get bored

No two days are the same in construction, so no boredom here! Every project is different, and there are always new advances in products, techniques, and consumer trends to keep you on your toes!

You’ll be at the forefront of technology

In the construction industry you’ll find yourself at the forefront of exciting new technological developments that are redefining construction by streamlining processes and reinventing how people work.

A great way to make friends

Working on a construction site means spending a lot of your time in a team, overcoming challenges together. It’s easy to see how strong bonds form. What most of the people in construction love most about their job is working closely with their colleagues.

Wages and benefits are good

Wages are rising, plus the industry offers great health benefits and retirement. If you train through an apprenticeship, that means you won’t be paying off student debt either, which is more money in your pocket!

Be your own boss

A lot of people dream of being their own boss. Making your own decisions, managing your own work, and often managing other people too, are all possible with a career in construction.
