Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Colin Butterly from Construction Industry Federation to give some advice for people considering this job:
|For anyone who even vaguely considers a trade or a management job they shouldn’t hesitate to pursue it as it can surprise you how capable you can become despite any reservations you may have.
It could even introduce you to different roles in the industry that you hadn’t realised were available to you or felt where out of your reach.
