WIC MEMBERSHIP

Women into Construction is a membership organisation connecting women with contractors and training organisations. Member organisations pay an annual membership fee, which entitles them to a range of benefits.

Membership plays a key role in ensuring the future growth of Women into Construction (WIC) and its clients (women seeking work opportunities). It costs an average of £500.00 to support a woman on work experience, and a minimum of £200 to provide training to enable site access. Membership fees provide the budget to move women into paid employment and will enable WIC to support more women.

Here’s how it works:

Women Into Construction recruit women interested in all areas of construction. We give them advice and guidance related to their skill area, ensure they all have a CSCS card, and offer additional construction related training, such as the SMSTS and Working at Heights qualifications. Working closely with our contractors, we then broker them into supported work-placements and paid work.

Since our inception, we have, brokered 600 women into long-term, paid employment with more than twice that number receiving advice and training.

We have been told that this model makes us the only organisation in Europe providing the construction industry with highly motivated, qualified and job ready female recruits.
