These will include jobs such as Project Managers, Planning Managers, Quality
Engineers, Section Managers, Health and Safety Advisors and supporting roles such as Trades and Document Controllers.

As well as providing an insight into career pathways in the construction industry, we will run workshops to provide

Feedback from previous Insight days
Service Leaver: “Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for taking the time to organise today’s event in
Chester. As a soon to be Service Leaver, the event was extremely useful and valuable to me, it was small enough to be
personal and get a real insight for the companies there represented. It was also big enough for me to get access to a
broad range of employers/recruiters in a ‘1 stop shop’ setting.

I have taken some valuable contact details and whether or not anything comes of it, what I have gained is some excellent
information and a broader knowledge base for me to make any future decisions. I will absolutely champion this event to
my peers and beat the drum for BuildForce as a credible and valuable resettlement support agency.”

Employer: “Thanks for letting myself and Richie participate with this worthwhile initiative. I have passed the details onto
our MD, who will get back to me shortly to advise what can be done within our business. I fully believe that all the
candidates we met could quite easily find a role within our industry, and hopefully we can make something happen at
