careers in construction month
Did you know that October is ‘Careers in Construction Month’?
Like many other businesses, Mobius Works knows the Industry as a whole, needs to tackle the skills shortages and bring in the up-and-coming talent out there – so we’re going to shout about how great it is to work within Construction - who wouldn’t want to work in such a great industry?
We’re celebrating this month by sharing different Construction Industry experiences from 2 of our employees Helene and Sadie. Keep your eyes peeled - to celebrate further we will be posting more staff experiences within the industry.
Here is our Divisional Director Business Development, Helene’s story…
“I started my career in Construction back in 2004 when I joined Rok as the Local Customer Leader at their Bristol office. Having moved from a programme manager role at an international company in Bath, it was a pleasant change to be working with local clients and seeing for myself the delivery of projects I was working on. It might be a cliché but when working within this industry at @mobiusworks, no day is the same because no project is the same.
One of the things I love, is working on a project now, or meeting someone who originally worked on a project, that I was part of back in the 2000’s. It’s a really small world and it’s wonderful to see the cycle of a building’s life. For example, maintaining and repairing a school building, or extending it, which I helped initially win through the tender process many years ago is a great feeling. It really is a great industry to work in and build a career in”.
Sadie England, our Business Development Support Co-ordinator had this to say…
“after working 20 plus year in the Travel Industry, the change into Construction has been very different but also exciting. Strangely there are similarities; the variety of work, the challenge of keeping high customer service levels and never one day being the same.
The Construction Industry is very complex and has many different layers which I am finding interesting. Having basic knowledge of the built environment has been helpful, and I am enjoying the daily challenge of learning a new industry and hope that this is the start of something new within a different working sector. I would say to all out there, a change of career is scarier, as the worry of not success is always there but if you bring the right attributes with you never fail personally and moving to work at @mobiusworks has certainly been the right decision”.
