#Thursdaythoughts

A survey by the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) has found that on average approx only 1 out of 10 construction workers are female. The survey found that on construction sites 99% of workers are male, whilst offsite, 54% are male and 46% are female. Of those women working in construction roles considered 'offsite' the majority work in administration, finance, HR and marketing. The survey results were released as the CIF launches a year-long awareness campaign to increase the number of women working in the industry.

We decided to ask our M&E Coordinator, Roisin, to tell us what its really like to work in a male dominant industry. Heres what she had to say..

''On a recent job myslef and the cleaner were the only women on site. I know its not a very glamorous industry but it has its good points. I think there is a stigma about women working on sites and I know it can be intimidating entering a massive site full of men but I can reassure any women out there that I have never had any issues on site, Ive always been treated equally. There is definitely a need for women to take careers in construction and I encourage anay woman to do so. After all we multitask very well..''
