Building careers in construction for women in Bristol
26 August 2022
In partnership with Women into Construction CIC and The Hill Group we’re launching a pre-employment programme in Bristol to help address the gender imbalance in the construction workforce.
Working closely with Bristol’s Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) team, we’re providing a five-week programme for women who want to understand more about the construction sector and the roles available.
Providing a hands-on experience
The pre-employment programme will include:
Three weeks of construction-related and employability training, including CSCS cards, in partnership with The Restore Trust
A 2-week practical, hands-on work experience placement at our impressive McArthur’s Yard site in central Bristol
The work experience will include trades such as electrical, carpentry, maintenance and painting & decorating, along with management shadowing opportunities in disciplines such as site management and technical coordination.
This is a really exciting programme and is part of our commitment to building a diverse workforce and a more balanced future for the sector.

Any women interested in this fantastic opportunity are invited to register to attend an information session at 11 am on Wednesday 7 September at 101 Victoria Street, Bristol.
At the event, you can learn more about the programme, meet the employers involved and hear from women already successfully working in the industry.
To mark International Women’s Day, we’re pleased to announce a partnership with charity Women into Construction and contractor Henry Construction to offer training and work experience across our 965-home site in Bromley-by-Bow. This is part of our ongoing advocacy for women in construction and maintenance across the housing sector, and our wider commitment to develop skills in the construction sector
