Niblock are passionate about shaping the future of the construction industry. To support Careers in Construction Month, our Social Value Executive, Jodie Pitt, has been on a mission to inspire and empower young minds in secondary schools across London Boroughs.
Partnering with the Construction Youth Trust, Jodie volunteered to support engaging sessions, including:
📚 “How To Be a Professional”
📝 CV Writing Workshops
🤝 Exploring Transferable Skills
🎙️ Mock Interviews
🛠️ Navigating Apprenticeship Applications
The enthusiasm and curiosity of the students was great to see. They often asked Jodie, “What made you want to work in construction industry?” and by the end of each session, they left with newfound knowledge that can shape their career journeys.

“It was fantastic to have Jodie attend our session and provide insight on the construction and built environment sector, the students were particularly interested in hearing about the apprenticeships available at Niblock. During the session Jodie also supported the students with an activity encouraging them to look at the transferrable skills! Thank you for all of your support, it was fantastic to have you along !”- Holly Fanshawe, Senior Programme Manager at CYT.

“It was such a pleasure to welcome Jodie to the Year 11 “CV surgery with an employer” at Jo Richardson school. The students really appreciated her appraisal of their CV’s and absolutely took on board her invaluable advice. They were especially interested in hearing about the apprenticeships available at Niblock! Jodie, we really appreciate you! Thank you for your unwavering support.”- Wendy Heller, Senior Construction Skills Manager at CYT.
