Insight Days

Insight days

Insight Days promote awareness of roles that people might not expect to be available within the Construction, Building Services and Facilities Management sector. These can be held in schools, colleges, community spaces such as libraries, job and community centres.

We want to ensure that everybody realises that there is a role to fit them, regardless of skills, aptitude or knowledge. If you have a head for figures, in addition to our Accounting department, there is also the option of becoming a Quantity Surveyor, whose job it is to oversee the price of each construction project, down to the minutest detail. If you are more of a people person, then why not consider becoming a Resident Liaison Officer who work with residents, or join the Human Resource or Corporate Social Responsibility sector. Alongside the traditional plumbers, electricians, builders and engineers the build environment offers a host of different administrative jobs, and important functions such as Health & Safety and IT. Insight Days also give us the opportunity to expand awareness of careers within the industry that Aston Group do not cover, by inviting our supply chain to attend and explain their various specialist roles.

Insight Days are more than just an introduction to the different roles however, they are a chance to engage with our experienced professionals who already hold those posts and can explain about the routes into the role and the day to day duties. We hold Q&A sessions with our Contract Managers and apprentices, and interactive activities to give you an idea of what it would be like to actually do the job! We are always on the lookout for new talent, so these are opportunities to network with potential employers in an informal and relaxed environment. All of our training courses are free, and open to people of all ages and backgrounds, no qualifications or experience necessary.

If you would like to discuss us delivering one of these sessions or any other of our pre-employment to your school, college or community group or are interested in attending a session please contact us
