Join us as we wrap up this week’s activity behind the hoardings of the UK’s construction industry, showcasing the wealth of opportunity it has to offer.

Open Doors, run by Build UK, gives you the chance to go behind the scenes and explore the varied and diverse career opportunities available in construction. This year, over 200 sites and events were listed across the UK. Whether you’re a student, school leaver, careers advisor or looking to change your career, UK Open Doors Week offers you the chance to uncover how the buildings that shape your community are built and the people behind them.
