Ultimate Essex Construction Careers Guide

We’ve launched our Ultimate Essex Construction Careers Guide, to help educate and inspire young people to think about the different opportunities for you in construction across Greater Essex.

Construction is one of the biggest industries in Greater Essex employing more than 65,000 people. There are over 200 different roles in the sector needing an array of skillsets – it’s certainly not all about bricks and hard hats, and certainly not just for boys!

The guide provides detailed information and case studies from Essex based businesses on 8 different roles including:

  • Building Information Modelling
  • Buyer
  • Civil Engineer
  • Groundworker
  • Planning
  • Project Management
  • Site Management
  • Surveying

Initially 50 copies of the guide have been sent to every secondary school in Greater Essex, and we encourage careers professionals and teachers to use this guide with their students. 

To request additional copies of the brochure for your school please email
