The July 2022 G4CSW podcast is live!
Kane has 10 years experience in the construction industry, and the recurring theme throughout his podcast is the ‘variety’ the industry has to offer. Whether this is in terms of technical skills (from heavy plant/machinery to hard landscaping), the types of projects (such as commercial business parks, residential developments, and remedial works), or the general variety each day at work brings (both on and off-site).
A fantastic listen for understanding more about the role of groundworkers in the construction industry.
Kane also gives some brilliant advice on how we can attract the younger generation to the construction industry. In particular, Kane suggests re-vamping the work experience scheme, so instead of learners spending 2 weeks in the same role, they spend slightly longer (e.g. 6 weeks) spread across different roles (e.g. 6 roles). This will maximise learners’ exposure to the working world, and ultimately help them make a decision about where to take their career.
Please share with anyone you think might be interested in joining the industry, and would benefit from hearing more about the variety of roles and opportunities available.
