MCS recognises that there is a shortage of labour in the construction industry, which is likely to remain, until we as a market sector, raise students' awareness of the huge range of exciting career opportunities which exist within the sector.
Recent CITB data shows that the overall appeal of the construction industry as a career option for young people is low, scoring 4.2 out of 10 among 14 to 19 year olds. It is perceived to be about 'being outdoors and getting dirty' and most suited to 'young people who do not get into college or university'.
We want to change that perception and are passionate about nurturing the talent of tomorrow, so we welcome applications from students who want to learn more about the construction industry and the variety of opportunities available, including: Project Management, Construction Management, Quantity Surveying, Design Management or Estimating.
This week we welcome Avi to MCS. Avi is currently studying for his A levels and is very interested in becoming a Quantity Surveyor.
If you know of a student who would like to apply for work experience with MCS, please see our careers page on our website: www.mcs-construction.co.uk/careers
