The Military Programme is especially created for Service leavers who might be interested in finding out what career opportunities are available in construction and the built environment.

Last year the Trust successfully completed coordination of the high-profile BuildForce pathfinder project for ex-forces where we delivered work placements, training and events to a wide range of Service Leavers. During the events the Armed Forces were able to get their CSCS cards, gain insider knowledge from transitioned forces and insight into the industry. 

We at the Trust wish to educate, inspire and inform about the wide range of career opportunities in construction, civil engineering and the built environment sector. 

Our goal is to offer Armed Forces leavers with the experience necessary to make informed decisions about their ideal career and encourage as many as possible to begin that new career in the construction industry and to reach their potential.



Construction Youth Trust coordinates the delivery of the programme to service leavers including the following:

  • Industry Awareness Events

  • Industry-supported Online Chat information service

  • Industry-supported buddying system

  • Work Placement

  • Job Brokerage




This has opened a new career that I will be chasing and helped me believe that it is possible even without a construction background
