Construction

Construction is a large employing industry. Trades workers are vital to Construction, with apprenticeships and traineeships the main entry pathway. Jobs in Construction can be physically demanding, like bricklaying, meaning that many people leave the industry when they are older. This opens opportunities for young people, and the training and experience can lead to management jobs. Many of the workers are male and part-time jobs are rare.
