Following BuildForce’s recent hugely successful webinar focusing on military women entering the construction industry (viewed over 8,000 times in it’s first week), the employer Amey stated “We’re passionate about supporting the Armed Forces community, not only through the work we do in our defence contracts but by partnering with organisations who are dedicated to providing opportunities for service leavers and veterans to fulfil their potential once they leave the Forces.
We’re particularly proud of our alliance with BuildForce, a programme supporting ex-services personnel transition into long term careers in construction and the built environment, with the added benefit of reducing skill gaps, labour shortages and lack of diversity in industry.
Analise Hopkins is one of our newly appointed Project Managers, having been referred to us by BuildForce last year. After a career in the Royal Engineers, Analise is now an invaluable member of our Central North team and is keen to share her experience of transitioning into the construction industry with other Service leavers.”
Analise said “I agreed to take part in a recent BuildForce webinar aimed at encouraging more ex-Forces women into construction as I know it can be a daunting and unsettling period. These webinars helped me during my resettlement phase and I wanted to give something back and also help others who are at the beginning of their transition journey.”
