Careers in Construction
7th November 2018 – Careers in Construction – CBS Omagh
Brigid McGuigan, Social Impact Manager at Fox Contracts Ltd delivered a presentation on Careers in Construction to over 200 construction students at Christian Brothers School. Students heard about the diverse range of roles within construction and were given advice on the many different routes available to enter the industry, both via academic and vocational routes. Brigid also shared the Institute of Civil Engineers Work+ Apprenticeship video which highlighted the increasingly popular route in to a career in Civil Engineering. The students and teachers were then afforded a visit to site where they heard at first hand from the site team about their experience in the construction industry and the study route they took to get there and given the opportunity to ask questions about the industry and discuss their aspirations. This event was very well received with, very positive and encouraging feedback from both teachers and students.
Nuala Griffiths, Development Officer from Strategic Investment Board also attended the visit.
