Building Pathways has been set up to identify and secure work placements or apprenticeships within the construction industry for those from under-represented groups. It’s a network of construction industry employers, referral partners, training providers and specialist support organisations whose aim is to inspire, engage and support new and emerging talent from under-represented groups to pursue construction careers so they can achieve fulfilling careers and reach their potential.

Diversity in the Construction Industry

We achieve this by:

  • Collaborating with like-minded employers and organisations that are committed to increasing access to construction careers opportunities for diverse people
  • Adding value to existing recruitment strategies
  • Focusing on the provision of quality information and advice, signposting, skills assessment and access to employer-led skills training and career opportunities
  • Providing an online platform to enhance connections between candidates and employers


Building Pathways is playing an important role in connecting potential candidates to employers for career and skills training in the sector, learn about the reality of the industry and establish personal contacts and support networks through the provision of mentoring and signposting.

Our process for candidates is straight forward, you simply register online at and attach an up to date CV if you have one. Once you register, a member of the team will be in touch within 48 hours to arrange an information and advice session before matching you with a suitable industry mentor or training provider locally. You can also learn more about the huge variety of job and career opportunities, get help to understand what employers are looking for and gain access via our web links to other support services.
