Encouraging young people in the construction industry
Posted on Thursday 02 February, 2023
Adam Baxter, Construction Project Manager at Placemakers, reflects on his 10 years in the construction industry and explores whether we are offering enough encouragement to the next generation in the industry.
"In a complicated field of specialists and technicians, we are in need of good leadership.
Whether or not my generation have been trained well enough or are as ready as can be to face the challenges that lay ahead, we will have to step up to the plate all the same.
So surely the risk in not sincerely encouraging young people in construction is greater than anything else at stake in the industry."
