Armed Forces Insight Day hosted by Vistry Group (live event)

The BuildForce insight day brings together our nationwide construction employers and our Service Leavers, Veterans, Reservist and Military Spouses. This is a great opportunity for our employers and our military community to engage and discuss transferable skills, training, current and pipeline roles. Find out more about what the industry has to offer and better understand roles available such as: Project and Programme Management, Site Management, Designer, Logistician, Mechanical and Electrical Engineer, Quantity and Building Surveyor, Estimator, Health and Safety Manager, Quality Manager, Trade roles, Plant Operator, Civil Engineering, HR, IT and supporting roles. A job in construction offers a wide range of professional careers and is accessible to all ranks and skill sets and offers real potential for career progression.

As well as providing an insight into career pathways in the construction industry and the wider built environment, you will have an opportunity to spend 1-2-1 time with our employers in an informal, friendly atmosphere to discuss your transition, CV, career advice and employment opportunities.

BuildForce supports our service leavers and veterans as they transition into long-term careers in construction. Our industry programme, training programme and mental health programme offer a wraparound service to ensure our candidates transition successfully.

Our key sponsor Vistry Group is an MoD ERS Gold Award holder and a long-standing supporter of BuildForce.  They have a variety of roles ideally suited to veterans:  largely site-based construction roles, H&S professionals and customer facing roles in sales and customer service.  But are also keen to attract veterans to other roles that play to the strengths of our Armed Forces community.  They have over 250 locations across England based on 23 business units that provide new homes under the brands of Bovis Homes, Linden Homes, and Drew Smith, as well as regenerating brownfield sites and building care homes for the elderly.
