Building firm bids to get more women into construction industry

ONE of the largest privately-owned housebuilders in the UK is bidding to attract more women into the construction industry.Bloor Homes is hoping that recent key female appointments at the company will encourage more women to consider a career in the sector.
The developer has recently taken on its first female trainee site manager – Samantha Lees at the Laurel Grove development in Fareham – and bricklaying apprentice.
The firm says these are key milestones in what remains a male-dominated industry – and Bloor says it already has above average numbers of women in its HR and finance departments.
