Our Vision

Construction is a key sector to the UK economy employing around 2.5 million people. New opportunities to train and work in the sector are growing, however, the construction industry is experiencing a severe shortfall in skills, that's where Built By Us comes in.

BBU’s vision is that by 2030 it will have played an active role in the creation of a diverse UK construction sector which both reflects the society it serves and draws on the talents of a diverse workforce.

Our work

Built By Us (BBU) is a not-for-profit consultancy based in London that specialises in the construction sector. Created by industry for industry, we find and develop the diverse talent that businesses need.

Built By Us believes that everyone can make a positive contribution to the places we live, learn and work in. To ensure candidates are able to take full advantage of opportunities we take the time to get to know them, providing information and customised support.  

By finding and supporting new people for the construction sector we help individuals to make a change in their lives, help businesses find the skills they need and make positive social impact easier for construction companies.
