Building Careers Live
16 - 17 July 2022
Warwickshire Exhibition Centre which is located just outside of Leamington Spa in Warwickshire.
Building Careers Live is the largest interactive construction careers event. Whether you are looking to start your career, embark on a change of direction or just want a great day out come and join us. All the careers involved in the construction industry will be on hand, with experts in their field, ready to give you advice and practical demonstrations. For the first time we have gathered a host of social media influencers all coming together to make this an event not to be missed.
It offers the chance to observe and participate in a variety of trades and meet those currently working within the building industry as well as influencers on social media who are involved in the building industry.
The event will be practical and interactive with students being able to have a go at workshops ranging from plastering, roofing, joinery, decorating, bricklaying and electrical works. There is also careers advice and drop in sessions where people can chat to advisors to discuss steps into the trades and career progression, salary etc.
Although it is a free event for students, tickets will still need to be booked so numbers are known for the days, parents/guardians can attend but would need to pay for their own ticket. You can also book tickets, take a walk through the interactive site and see the virtual reality experience: Welcome | Building Careers Live
