The Benefits of a Career in Scaffolding and Construction

For school-leavers, it can be a confusing and very stressful experiencing deciding on the kind of career you’d like to follow. The decision to go to university to study or start work immediately is a choice that many millions of young people have to make. If you’re confused about what you’d like to do, we think you should consider a career in scaffolding; here’s why.

Great Job Security

First and foremost, you can enjoy excellent job security working as a scaffolder. There’s a shortage of skilled workers in trade currently, so many companies are looking for new blood to join the industry and there’s always more houses to build!

Physically Demanding

If you love being outside and active, working as a scaffolder is a great choice. In this line of work you’ll often be outside labouring so, not only will you be making a steady income, but you’ll also be getting exercise in too.

Career Progression and Opportunities To Start own Firm

Once you’ve gathered some experience in the trade, there are a number of ways you can develop yourself and grow within the industry. If you’re committed to progression, you can go on training courses to continue your development and better yourself. Once you’ve got the necessary skills and some money saved up, you could even set up your own firm and become your own boss!

Few Barriers To Entry

As well as having great opportunities, there are limited barriers to entry. This means that you can learn about the industry as an apprentice or scaffolding labourer as soon as you leave school if that’s the path you’d like to take.
