Introduction to the CIOB
Construction career paths
Case Study Q&A
If you're thinking about a career in construction, want to submit your entry or just interested in finding out more about opportunities in the built environment then this Hub is for you!
For the fourth year running with MyKindaFuture, the CIOB have put forward a new exciting challenge for you to take part in. We want YOU to choose a historical, or just old, buidling in your local area and propose how it could be repurposed, renovated or rejuvenated to keep it relevant and culutrally significant for future generations.
If we love your idea, this could be your chance to be invited to the Houses of Parliament for a Prize Giving Celebration.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it true that you don’t get paid a lot and there aren’t very many jobs?
Not at all, the average starting salary for a construction manager £500 higher than the UK average. And the government estimate that the sector will create over 230,000 jobs by 2020.
Do you need a degree to get a job in conservation?
No, construction apprenticeships and school leavers programmes are great ways to get further education and training.
Are there opportunities for professional development in the built environment?
Of course, there are lots of opportunities to enter the sector and earn a good salary. Construction professionals are constantly updating themselves and improving their skill sets through training and learning. Many of the skills developed in construction management are transferable to other sectors and in high demand.
But I'm worried that the construction sector is harming our environment.
Sustainable building is key to modern construction, ensuring a positive environmental and social impact across the life of the structure. This is why we're asking you to incorporate sustaineable building into your challenge entry!
