A few weeks ago I had the great opportunity to be interviewed by BBC radio manchester, about women working in construction.
The interview was nicely near my home, at Laing O’Rourke’s Connell College site in Beswick where I was interviewed along with their Construction Manager manager, Laura Greene.
As usual we were asked questions about the perception of construction being a dirty, dangerous industry for a woman to work in. I was struck that a well run, modern and safe site like Laura’s is probably one of the least dirty or dangerous places to work compared to more traditional female jobs such as catering, care work, nursing or factory work! For those that would like to try it, also better paid !
