Open Doors offers a unique chance for the public to go behind the scenes of live construction sites, offices, factories, and training centres across Great Britain, and discover how the communities they live in are shaped and constructed by an industry with a diverse range of career paths to offer.

Open Doors takes place between Monday 16 - Saturday 21 March 2020. Bookings are now available on the Open Doors website and spaces are set to fill up quickly.

Open Doors seeks to inspire young people and career changers to consider and explore a dynamic and exciting career in the construction industry.

The event is also supported by the Considerate Contractors Scheme, the Careers Enterprise Company, Department for Work & Pensions and media partner Construction News.

Bouygues UK CEO Rob Bradley said: “Open Doors is a fantastic way to highlight the dynamic work undertaken in the construction industry and the diverse range of careers available and we are very pleased to be involved once again. It is a great platform for us to showcase the hard work and collaboration that goes into delivering a built environment.”

Suzannah Nichol, Build UK Chief Executive, said: “Bookings are now open for Open Doors 2020, which offers a fantastic opportunity to have a closer look at not only some of Great Britain’s most exciting construction projects, but also a chance to hear first-hand about what is on offer if you follow the path into construction. I can say first-hand that you certainly won’t regret choosing a career in the industry!”

CITB said: “Open Doors gives visitors access to a huge variety of construction sites, offices and training centres around the country, where they can see for themselves the many careers available in our sector. CITB is proud to be a partner in this excellent initiative and I encourage people from all ages and backgrounds to sign up and see just what construction has to offer.”
