Career insight sessions for the construction, architecture and gas engineering industries

Are you interested in a career in architecture, construction or building maintenance?  Even if you don't want to work on site, there could be a career for you in the industry!

There are many industries and job roles that are involved in the process of building the homes you see in your community, from design to construction to maintaining the buildings once people have moved into their homes. As a developer of affordable housing, our parent company Network Homes is committed to helping residents and people in the communities they work in to gain a better understanding of the many opportunities available.

Find out how to kickstart your career in the industry at Network Homes' career insight sessions with gas service and maintenance contractors Oakray, construction contractor ARJ and architecture consultants BTPW.

Who are they for?

This series of insight talks is an opportunity to hear directly from Network Homes' contractors about how their industry works and how you can start or develop your own career in architecture, construction or gas engineering, both on and off site.

These sessions will be perfect for you if you are exploring options to find the right career path for you, or if you are looking for a career change from your current industry. You don't have to be a Network Homes or SW9 resident to attend- everyone is welcome!
