Virtual career chats

Do you want to hear from employers on the roles available?

During lockdown we have been running virtual career chats which brings industry closer to you, in the safety of your own home. We interview Veterans now in industry doing a variety of roles, with the Veterans sharing their transition, training, career decisions and insightful information about their current career.

Each week, we invite along Recruitment Managers, Resource Managers or Line Managers, providing advice on networking; CV’s; job searches and interviews. Our live audience join us in a Q&A session, where we provide guidance and advice to those building the foundations for their career in construction.
