Schools – Promoting Construction as a Career

We aim to show students at all ages the variety of careers the construction industry can offer.

We support local schools and colleges by attending a variety of events such as Careers days or Mock Interviews to help promote Construction as a career

Many of our members have taken on a student for on-site work experience opportunities, this helps them gain hands experience, training and get a feel for if it’s the right industry for them.  These are the kind of opportunities we would like more members to help us to promote a career in construction, if we can show them at this early stage of their lives what they can do and achieve, it will send a message that Construction is a Career for Life!

If you could help support our local schools and offer a few hours even once a year this would be extremely helpful and greatly appreciated by the schools and their students.  You would not need to do this alone, I could either attend with you or pair you with another member.  Its is great fun and would also help you tick a box when tendering for work or applying for accreditations.

Northfield Construction Ltd work experience in June 2022

Students Report

My week of work experience has opened my eyes to a different side of construction I never knew. Throughout the week I was filling invoices for the accounts office, created company invitations, created site and office folders for new projects, printed and put together health and safety files for new projects, laminated pages for the site induction folders and I was logging proof of delivery of concrete used in each job on spreadsheets. The insight to this has made me more advanced in work skills. Northfield Construction workers are really nice and friendly which made my week more fun. Thank you for allowing me to take part in this experience.


Currently in the UK there are approximately 300,000 women working in construction.
