Work experience

Some building and construction management courses offer a year out in industry, giving you the chance to develop professional contacts and build on your practical skills. Alternatively, you could apply for a summer placement with relevant building or construction companies.

Make the most of any work placements you do as companies may use them as a way to recruit future employees. Placements also provide a good opportunity to find out more about the structure of the industry and the skills and qualities that you need for particular jobs.

Temporary work with a relevant company can also be useful for networking. Check firms' websites for details or apply speculatively.

Typical employers

The UK construction industry is dominated by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with a relatively small number of larger companies. The private sector is a major source of employment. Local government and government bodies also offer employment opportunities.

Typical employers include:

  • Local or international construction companies;
  • design and build companies;
  • civil engineering contractors;
  • building and project management companies or consultancies;
  • property development companies;
  • organisations involved in urban regeneration and sustainable development;
  • housing associations;
  • health authorities.

The technical, management and professional skills developed during your degree are also welcomed by employers in other sectors, such as finance, marketing, logistics, personnel and general management.

The starting salary is 1800 - 2000ghs per month
