National Regional Property Group helps youngsters carve out a career in construction

on .

National Regional Property GroupIt’s not all muddy boots and working out in the cold. That was the message from National Regional Property Group, which is encouraging more youngsters to explore careers in construction and the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects in the industry.

The company took part in EBP South’s Big Bang @ Solent event at the Ageas Bowl last week (April 26) to showcase the wide variety of roles there are in the developer and construction industries.

Jo Burfitt, Business Manager at National Regional Property Group said: “Quite often when young people think of construction they think about bricklaying, carpentry and being out on a muddy building site. We want to open their eyes to the many different jobs that make up the construction industry, from planning and architecture to surveying, engineering and administration roles.”
