About Go Construct
What is Go Construct?
Go Construct provides resources for anyone looking for a career in the construction and built environment sector. We showcase the many rewarding opportunities available and help people from all backgrounds to enter an exciting and growing industry which has a huge impact on the UK’s housing, industry and infrastructure.
In addition to our online resources, Go Construct also reaches out to people seeking opportunities by attending careers events, engaging with the press, and supporting construction ambassadors.
Who is Go Construct for?
We’re here to support young people looking for opportunities to gain skills and employment, as well as more experienced people looking to change careers. Whether you’ve already chosen to enter the construction industry or are still deciding if it’s the right fit, Go Construct provides information and advice on finding fulfilling, engaging roles that are right for your capabilities and interests.
Our resources can be used to inform and guide decisions by individuals, or to equip parents and careers advisors with valuable, easy to share guidance.
How is Go Construct funded?
Go Construct is supported by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) Levy, which is funded by employers in the construction industry - from family firms right through to multinational companies. Our purpose is to help people access the information they need to consider a career in construction and to help fulfil the sector's need for a larger and more representative workforce.
How is Go Construct supported by industry?
Our partners and ambassadors help us achieve far more than we could ever do alone. With their expert knowledge and support, together we’re encouraging people from all backgrounds to consider a career in construction.
