Built By Us is on a mission to connect diverse talent to careers in construction


Our Vision

Construction is a key sector to the UK economy employing around 2.5 million people. New opportunities for careers in construction are growing as the sector experiences a severe shortfall in the skills it requires - this is where Built By Us (BBU) can help.

BBU has a vision 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.


About BBU

Founded by architect Danna Walker, Built By Us (BBU) is a not-for-profit recruitment consultancy that specialises in developing careers in construction. Created by industry for industry, BBU finds and develops 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 the opportunities we take the time to understand their needs, provide careers information and customised support.  

By finding and supporting 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.
