Are you a woman looking for an exciting and varied role?

Introducing the Women into Home Building Employment Programme!

Women into Construction are thrilled to have partnered with the Home Builders Federation and 9 major homebuilders to create a new programme, with the aim to recruit women into Site Manager roles. The programme has 45 places available in 2023 and we are looking for enthusiastic women who are willing to learn and have a passion for the future!

How do I find out more about Site Management?

We have created an Information Booklet which tells you everything you need to know about the programme, employers, site management and what you can expect from a role as a site manager!

There are several routes to becoming a site manager. The graphic opposite showcases a typical career path you could follow but the employers in this programme each offer a variety of training routes into the position – you will find out more about these during the programme.
