The UKCW Role Model Class of 2019 Winner Congratulations Anjali Pindoria
Let's inspire the new generation
Nathan Garnett, Event Director for UKCW explains, “We launched the UKCW Role Models initiative in 2018 and were immediately impressed by the amount of amazing people out there. Their stories and achievements tell their own story and by putting them directly in front of those who are contemplating a career in construction, we are sure we can win hearts and minds”.
“We are planning our student programme again for the event in October, and we know how valuable this is for students to get enthused about construction, and they loved meeting the UKCW role models. For UKCW 2018 we built a UKCW Careers Centre as part of that programme allowing role models and people interested in construction to meet, gain insight and talk to the professional membership bodies.”
UKCW Role Models
UK Construction Week Role Model Programme is an opportunity for people to raise their own profile if they feel they deserve it, or for colleagues to nominate professionals they feel deserve recognition. This is a great chance for a company to raise its profile by showcasing its talent, as well as for unsung heroes to gain valuable encouragement, as well as help recruit a whole new generation of construction professionals.
This aims at all walks of the sector, whether you are a newly qualified apprentice, or someone who has transferred into the sector from the military or automotive industries. You could be working in facilities management, architecture, energy management, civil engineering, site management, bricklaying, digital construction, electro technical installation, roofing… the list goes on! We want a diverse and representative selection to show the world the myriad of opportunities and talent the sector holds.
Successful UKCW Role Models will be asked to speak at UK Construction Week on our Main stage or individual show stages, to take part in our UKCW student initiative, and they will be asked to write blogs among other initiatives. They are also invited to selected events, as well as being VIPs at the main event in October.
Whilst all those selected in the group will gain significant profile from the campaign, there will be awards presented at the event itself to those who have been selected by the UKCW Advisory Committee to have been deemed the UKCW Role Models of the year. These will be presented at UK Construction Week in front of the journalists and industry VIPs.
