“Women have the power to shape spaces, communities, and lives - and there is no better time than now for them to make their mark in the construction industry,” says Shane Perry, managing director at Max Funding.

No two days are ever the same when you work in construction – each day brings challenges and opportunities for growth and development. You could be building houses one day, working on a high-rise office tower the next, or even travelling worldwide on projects!

Plus, if you’re willing to put in a bit of extra effort, many companies offer flexible hours so that you can balance your work life with other commitments outside of your job.

Reason # 4: Workplace Culture & Benefits

Constructions sites often have a strong camaraderie – everyone works together as a team towards a common goal and relies on each other’s strengths to make it happen. Many employers also offer additional benefits such as health insurance plans and retirement savings options which are great incentives for employees who want stability on and off the job site.

Reason # 5: Making A Difference
