UK Construction Week has announced a new initiative for this year to help the industry compete for talent, which will see role models in the industry have their profile elevated.
This will include their story being told in a nationwide publicity campaign through trade and consumer media.
This comes as massive challenges remain around recruitment of new blood into the sector, as it competes with other parts of the economy in the same predicament.
Nathan Garnett, Event Director for UKCW, has commented on this new concept.
“There are some amazing people working in the sector and their stories can be inspirational to others.
“So we are planning for UK Construction Week to act as a platform to do just that, inspire a new generation of construction professionals to join this rewarding and exciting industry.”
Role models will be asked to partake in an outreach programme, which will see them attend colleges and schools to talk to students and teachers and explain why they chose construction as a career, whilst tackling any myths around construction’s image.
UK Construction Week is looking for professionals to apply or to be nominated, so people can raise their own profile or colleagues can nominate professionals they feel deserve it.
This is a great chance for a company to raise its profile by showcasing its talent, as well as for unsung heroes to gain valuable encouragement, as well as help recruit a whole new generation of construction professionals.
This is aimed at all areas of the sector, no matter what your experience or expertise is.
A diverse and representative selection is sought; to show the world the plethora of opportunities and talent the sector holds.
Deadline for nominations is Friday 27th April. To enter or nominate, visit http://bit.ly/2uIrgeZ and submit a 300 word max biography and short summary of under 300 words on why you or your nomination should be selected.
Successful UKCW Role Models will be asked to speak at UK Construction Week, to take part in the UKCW student initiative and write for the Construction Matters blog.
They will also be invited to selected upcoming events, as well as being VIPs at the main event in October.
There will be awards presented at UKCW to those who have been selected by the UKCW Advisory Committee to have been deemed the Role Models of the year.
