Inspiring a New Generation into Construction

We are passionate about the vast opportunities that the construction sector offers young people. This week, during #nationalcareersweek 2023, we have highlighted a few of the recent careers events we have been involved with.

The Career’s Networking Workshop at St John’s Catholic Comprehensive was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the wide range careers available within the construction industry and the different career pathways.

Mock Interview Workshop – CYT

This week, as part of National Career’s Week (6th-11th March 2023) we will be highlighting some of the recent careers events we have been involved with, aiming to help young people explore their career options and providing them with valuable feedback as they prepare to enter the working world.

Mock Interview Workshop – Construction Youth Trust (CYT)

We recently attended the Construction Youth Trust offices to carry out a Mock Interview Session with a group of young NET’s (young people Not in Education, Employment or Training). In this session, the interviewers asked the interviewees a series of questions based around the role/profession they are interested in starting a career in. We were then able to provide constructive feedback on the following:

Body Language/Eye Contact

Fullness of Answers


Appropriate Clothing for Interviews

We hope that the tailored and direct feedback has reduced any possible anxiety about the interview process and has boosted the confidence of the young people as they apply for different job opportunities.

National Careers Week

Earlier this year, Katie, our Business Development & Social Value Manager, partnered with Construction Youth Trust to carry out a workshop with a group of sixth form students. The session focused on professionalism and aimed to teach the young people about the key skills they will need in order to successfully navigate the world of work, including:

  • Key values as an individual and in the workplace.
  • Workplace etiquette and how to uphold professionalism.
  • Communication with colleagues and external clients.
  • The importance of networking.

“Katie played an integral part in this fun and lively session, introducing herself and the work of Niblock confidently, while encouraging engagement from the young people throughout. We covered a range of topics including how to demonstrate integrity and respect in the workplace and Katie gave excellent examples of how to deal with various workplace pressures all while remaining polite and professional. It was clear the young people appreciated the insights she could offer.” – Charlie Dawson, Schools and Programme Coordinator, Construction Youth Trust.
