Community Engagement - BAM Construct UK
I joined BAM in 2014 deliver community engagement activities across Scotland. My degree is in Marketing, my previous role was in employability and I had absolutely no experience in the construction industry. A big part of my role is to promote the industry and the great opportunities that it offers and earlier this year I helped to develop and deliver a ‘female into construction’ programme which encouraged female high school pupils to consider a career in construction. Working with partners from across industry we delivered workshops, training and work experience opportunities showcasing the fantastic opportunities that construction can offer. I love my job and believe that the construction industry is a fantastic one. I would encourage anyone to consider a career in construction!
“Not only does the construction industry face challenges around the perception of what people in construction do but there is added challenges around getting female professionals into the industry. I believe it is important for everyone to get behind driving diversity, equality and inclusivity in construction and showcase what a fantastic industry it is.”
