Hear from Eliza, an apprentice joiner, on why she changed her career to construction through an apprenticeship – becoming a company’s very first female apprentice.
Originally from Hungary, Eliza’s career had been in Hotel and Tourism, but she wanted a change. And an apprenticeship in construction presented the perfect opportunity for her. Eliza has been with the company for 8 months now, and she has become an integral member of their team – with her passion and commitment clear from the outset.
“I knew it was my time, to try something new,” she said. “I knew I wanted to move into the construction industry. And I knew I wanted to do carpentry. Ever since I was a kid, helping my dad, I had loved it. People ask me if it’s hard, and can a woman really do this. And I say – yes, a woman can definitely do it.”
“I love doing the high-end precision work with steel and brass. I’ve been working on the Johnny Walker Project in Edinburgh which has been a fantastic experience. And I’m so grateful for this opportunity. I am so glad I made the move to the construction industry.”
