BUILT FOR PARTNERSHIP
The vision for BuildForce is quite simple: “To inspire and enable service leavers and veterans to pursue a long term career in construction and the built environment, whilst working collaboratively with industry to attract and more importantly retain them”
What is BuildForce?
Buildforce is a UK-wide alliance of employers, industry bodies and charities (currently 100+ strong), established with the mission of transitioning military service leavers and veterans to new careers in the construction sector and built environment.
BuildForce has engaged and inducted over 1,000 service leavers and veterans nationwide. Through identifying transferrable skills, creating bespoke career plans, and assigning industry mentors and work placements, we have helped over 200 military personnel to establish new and fulfilling careers, where their experience directly corresponds to industry needs, labour shortages and skills gaps.
What is UCEM doing?
UCEM is a proud supporter of BuildForce and is committed to supporting military veterans into construction careers. UCEM has four bespoke career road map outlines for construction site management, construction project management, quantity surveying (commercial management) and building surveying in construction.
