Without engineering construction we would have no heat to warm our homes, clean water to drink or petrol to fill our cars. Careers in engineering construction involve the design, construction and maintenance of industry sites and process plants responsible for production of oil, gas, water and food, and power generation.
The ECITB is an arms-length Government body that works to attract, recruit and train the skilled workforce required by industry. Our research shows that engineering construction companies must recruit staff for an extra 33,000 jobs by 2026. So, whether you are a young person just embarking on a career from school or university, or already in employment in a engineering role, there are plenty of opportunities to build a successful and rewarding careers in engineering construction.

The Tomorrow’s Engineers Code
The Code is intended to help us make fundamental changes to ensure engineering careers are more accessible for this generation of young people. The Code asks signatories to commit to improving the quality, inclusivity, targeting and reach of activities designed to inspire young people and to build and share understanding of how to do so. Nearly 80 organisations have already signed up and pledged to improve the quality, inclusivity, targeting and reach of activities designed to inspire young people. The ECITB is a proud Supporter.
