Attracting Women

Have you ever been to a careers event at a school or college? While there is no enforcement in place, you will see that gender stereotyping is still very much in play. It is a sad fact that many industries always fall very much into the category of suitable for one gender not the other. Hair and Beauty – Girls. Construction and Trades – Boys. It is a sad fact that women are still not being made aware of the varied career options within the construction industry.

Feeling Snookered in your career?

SnookerAs I sat watching Ronnie O’Sullivan achieve success over the weekend, it occurred to me that careers can also take a similar turn of either bad luck, skill, good fortune or a combination of all.

When you’re employed, you see the world from a different perspective than if you’re self-employed. What are you thinking about on Sunday around 3 or 4pm? Are you thinking about returning to work? Does it fill you with dread, or are you getting excited about the challenges you’ll face, making to-do lists for the next day? Are you popular at work? Do you actually know? How close are you to work colleagues? How many would you invite to your wedding? How many would you take time to visit if they had a spell in hospital? How many would visit you?

Skills Shortage Hits Housebuilding.

BlackFridayIt’s no surprise that the Housebuilding sector is beginning to show cracks, where the availability of talented individuals is concerned. It wasn’t so long ago that 10,000 people were made redundant. Not 10,000 subcontractors, I’m referring to employed staff located within offices of housebuilding groups up and down the country. Some would argue that many of the casualties were sub-standard folk and no real loss. That being the case, why is so difficult to find the best people in the housebuilding industry today?
