Qualifications and Training
To work as a construction director you would usually need an HNC or HND or a university degree in a subject accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), such as construction engineering, civil engineering or construction management.
For those without relevant qualifications in construction management, it’s still possible to progress on the strength of industry experience. Positions, such as construction manager or site agent provide essential experience and at this point, combining work with part-time study to complete relevant qualifications in construction management, is a natural progression.
Either way, you would need at least ten years’ industry experience and proven performance to progress to construction director.
