A CAREER IN CONSTRUCTION? The construction industry is a vibrant industry sector that offers many and varied career opportunities to young people. The industry needs this new talent in order to grow the Irish economy across all sectors and to meet the needs of an increasing population. WOMEN IN CONSTRUCTION There is a perception that our industry is male- orientated and does not present the same opportunities to all, but the fact is women are the answer to skills shortages in this industry. The construction Industry is more than what you might typically see on TV on a building site. It is packed with opportunities for skilled trades people, surveyors, architects, engineers and project managers. The gender stereotype of construction, coupled with an outdated image of the industry has contributed to the low number of women taking construction subjects at second level and entering into apprenticeships. Higher numbers of women in construction will lead to more productive, diverse and efficient industry.
