Open Doors: A unique chance to see behind the scenes at ISG

Considering a career in construction?

Our vision is to be the world’s most dynamic construction services company, delivering places that help people and businesses thrive.

To inspire people to pursue a career in construction, we open our doors each year to several ISG sites and offices across the UK as part of the Open Doors event.

This offers a unique opportunity to gain an insight into live construction sites and discover how the buildings in our communities are constructed. It also provides a great chance to learn about the range of skills and professions we need on site, as well as the raft of office-based roles, careers and people that contribute to what we do.

Open Doors is delivered by Build UK in partnership with CITB (under the banner of Go Construct).

Watch our video below to find out about the various careers we have across our business.

For 2024, we will be opening our sites to prospective early careers talent, people considering a career change and those with a keen interest in construction. 

ISG will be opening ten of their sites across England, Scotland and Wales including our London projects, Millennium Bridge House, Collcutt House, 33 Old Broad Street, Meadow High School, plus our Two Bridges Academy project in Thornbury, near Bristol, and our Station Leisure and Learning Centre project in Mablethorpe.

You can see our project list below. Keep an eye out for new projects that will be added!

Attendees across the UK will have the chance to gain invaluable experience in understanding the journey of constructing a building, the thinking behind the innovative design process, the key job roles that are involved and the types of skills that can be gained from a career in the built environment.

We’re also please to announce we’ll be opening up our offices again this year for an exclusive look into the jobs that aren’t on our construction sites, but are equally as important to the delivery of our projects. You can see what offices we are opening below.

Level 3 Applied Diploma in Professional Construction Practice

ISG has also joined forces with WJEC to co-develop a new qualification, the Level 3 Applied Diploma in Professional Construction Practice (PCP). Equivalent to an A-Level, the course offers young people the chance to become familiar with this great industry, introducing the standards, skills, techniques, technologies and ethos. Showcasing new and emerging technologies, such as Building Information Modelling (BIM), the use of drones, AI and VR in the built environment, the course is designed to provide students with the knowledge, understanding and skills that the industry relies on.
