Build Yourself at Wates – A virtual work experience opportunity!

Click here for leaflet

Build Yourself, our school engagement programme, aims to address misconceptions and promote careers in construction to the next generation. The VWEX opportunity will include:

  • A range of fun and challenging projects and tasks throughout the week
  • Virtual site tours, Q&A panels and interactive webinars featuring Wates apprentices and industry professionals
  • A chance to explore opportunities in the industry and learn more about the roles available
  • Build employability skills such as good communication, presentation skills and team working
  • Opportunity to network with industry professionals, gain a reference and build on your CV

We would be looking for applicants in the following locations:

Havering, Barking & Dagenham, Wandsworth, Westminster, Harrow, Hounslow, Bexley, Barnet, Brent and Gosport

Applications from any state maintained secondary school, academy or college (14 – 19 years) can register for the Experience programme.

Our priority is to address the skills gap and lack of diversity within the construction sector. We would especially welcome applications from:

  • Students who have not previously had work experience and do not have access to other opportunities
  • If you are female and interested in hearing more about construction. Women make up around 14% of construction industry professionals and this number can only be set to rise with more and more women choosing construction
  • Students from BAME backgrounds – Evidence shows that black, asian and minority ethnic people are entering the construction sector and progressing, however currently only 5% of the construction workforce is BAME (14% of UK workforce)
