UK scaffolding trade body the NASC has today launched a dedicated website at encouraging would-be employees of all ages and backgrounds to take up a position within the scaffolding industry.
The Scaffolding Careers website features a number of detailed overviews of a variety of job roles within the industry, from labourer and scaffolding operative through to SHEQ manager and estimator. Each overview provides information such as what the role entails, what the responsibilities are and what key skills are advantageous.
The trade body has also launched a recruitment jobs board for its own members to feature vacancies currently on offer.
Henry Annafi, NASC Training Officer, said: “As the trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK, the NASC has for many years led the way in the promotion of the industry to potential job seekers.
“These efforts have been stepped up recently and we’re now actively working with the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Defence, Department for Work and Pensions and various education providers to bring more people from all walks of life into the industry.
“The scaffolding careers website will significantly boost the efforts as it gives us for the very first time a dedicated place packed full of relevant information to point job seekers to. We would encourage the whole industry to refer job seekers to the website.”
