BuildForce Armed Forces Insight Day hosted by Jacobs

The BuildForce Insight Day brings together nationwide construction employers with Service leavers and veterans. This is a great opportunity to engage with employers and discuss transferable skills, training, current roles and recruitment pipelines.

Find out more about what the industry has to offer and better understand roles available such as Project Management, Designer, Logistician, Mechanical and Electrical Engineer, Quantity Surveyor, Estimator, Health and Safety Manager, Quality Manager, Trade roles, Plant Operator, Civil Engineering, HR and supporting roles.

A job in construction offers a wide range of professional careers, is accessible to all ranks and skill sets and offers real potential for career progression.

As well as providing an insight into career pathways within the construction industry and the wider built environment, you will have an opportunity to spend 1-2-1 time with employers in an informal, friendly atmosphere.  You will be able to discuss your transition and CV and receive career advice and find out more about available employment opportunities.
