Jobs in construction require a certain amount of skill and experience, as well as specific training. Whether working as a builder, scaffolder or in another construction role, on the job training is normally offered, as well as apprenticeships being available with certain companies too.
When working in the construction industry, you will be able to work for general construction companies, specialty trade contractors, or for yourself.
Hours worked in this industry often equate to around 40 per week, with an expectation of working your fair share of early morning, late nights, weekends, and overnight on occasions too.
You can expect your responsibilities to include cleaning and preparing construction sites; loading and unloading materials to take to different building sites; using machinery; and occasionally helping other construction workers with their day-to-day jobs.
Experience in the trade is required, with additional on-the-job training normally given at the start of the employment. Previous experience of working on a building site is ideal, as is experience in working as part of a team.
Pay varies due to the numerous different roles there are in construction. Like most jobs, pay is dependent upon experience, with the opportunity of gaining experience in new areas often being readily available.
The main benefit of construction work is working outside, rather than being based in an office. This role also allows workers to work flexibly if they wish, such as being off during the day but working overnight. This is particularly useful for those with small children to look after.
Those in construction can be promoted into various different roles, although this is normally a competitive industry to work in.
Working in construction requires you to carry out jobs that are physically demanding, as well as often being able to work outdoors. You will need to feel confident at working with loud noise around you, and feel confident at working at great heights on occasions. You will also need to have a constant attention to safety in order to avoid injury, as building sites are dangerous places.
