About #ConstructLondon

THURSDAY 26 NOVEMBER
11am to 3pm
Virtual Event (Online only)

Following the success of #ConstructLondon in July, when hundreds of London construction jobs, apprenticeships, training courses and opportunities were promoted across social media - #ConstructLondon is back on Thursday 26th November!

The concept is simple and for everyone.

#ConstructLondon is an online event delivered via social media. It provides a platform for London’s construction employers, colleges, jobcentres, local authorities, charities and others to promote job vacancies, apprenticeships, training and construction opportunities to millions of people, young and older across the capital.

The event is organised by the National Careers Service London, the Mayor’s Construction Academy, Construction Youth Trust, West London College and is supported by DWP.
