Construction comprises the creation, planning, design and financing of projects from outset to completion. It generates countless jobs, requires teamwork, skill and knowledge of materials and techniques. Quite simply, construction is one of the greatest examples of human ingenuity and brilliance we have.
It’s hard to imagine a line of work that’s more exciting to be a part of, and in recent years Northern Ireland has been a fantastic place to be for a career in construction, because of the proud industry there is here, which achieves pioneering work at home and across the world.
Better yet, Northern Ireland is also a leader when it comes to construction education, so if you’re a young person interested in getting into the industry, there’s never been a better time. Few industries have as many options when it comes to getting qualified, with opportunities varying from apprenticeships, further education, and university degrees, depending on the exact line of construction you wish to pursue.
