Krystina Marriott- Designer
Krystina Marriott a 3rd year student studying Interior Design at the University of South Wales expressed an interest in gaining industry experience. After approaching Pinkspiration for site experience a work placement with Travis Perkins was offered.
There are only 1% of women in manual trades and projects like this are essential in leading the way to a more diverse workforce. Supporting the pledge to help 50/50 by 2050 encouraging diversity in the sector, providing opportunities for women to work on site and the construction industry are key for growth.
Dave Vernon, Regional Director for Travis Perkins “ We are delighted to offer work placements and site experience within Travis Perkins and are committed to encouraging a more diverse workforce”
There are a variety of careers and opportunities for women and young people to enter the construction industry from Apprenticeship, Trade and High level positions.
