UK Construction Week

UKCW Role Models 2020

UKCW Role Models 2020

Inspire the new generation

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.

Role Models Awards

Successful UKCW Role Models will be asked to speak at UK Construction Week on the 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. The 2020 Role Models Awards ceremony will be taking place at the UKCW Stage on 6th October at 15:00.

Once a role model, always a role model!  

Last year's role models were truly inspirational, and we loved sharing their stories with others in the industry, and crucially, with younger generations thinking about a career in construction. They will be at the show again this year offering advice to career changers, services veterans and college students.

2019 UKCW Role Model of the Year - Anjali Pindoria

“We talk a lot about showcasing our industry to attract a new wave of talent and I truly believe that having the UK Construction Week Role Models campaign cements that! We see a vast array of individuals, personalities and humans showcase their careers in an open and honest platform from all parts of the UK so that others can learn from this. I strive to the role model I needed when I was younger and you truly believe you can impact on just that one person then you should strive to be a part of this campaign! It is more than just a day's event. It’s a family that grows together and betters each other to achieve one goal – to be trail blazers for our industry in our own unique ways and personal paths!”

Anjali Pindoria, Project Surveyor at Avi Contracts Ltd and UKCW Role Model Class of 2019 Winner.
