NASC launches dedicated careers website

The NASC has launched a dedicated careers website aimed at encouraging would-be employees of all ages and backgrounds to take up a position in the scaffolding industry. 

The site - scaffoldingcareers.nasc.org.uk - features more than a dozen detailed overviews of a variety of careers, from labourer and scaffolding operative through to SHEQ manager and estimator, each providing information such as what the role entails, what the responsibilities are and what key skills are advantageous. 

There’s also a jobs board featuring vacancies currently being offered by NASC members. 

Henry Annafi, NASC Training Officer, said: “As the trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK, the NASC has for many years led the way in the promotion of the industry to potential jobseekers. 

“These efforts have been stepped up recently and we’re now actively working with the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Defence, Department for Work and Pensions and various education providers to bring more people from all walks of life into the industry.   

“The scaffolding careers website will significantly boost the efforts as it gives us for the very first time a dedicated place packed full of relevant information to point jobseekers to. We would encourage the whole industry to refer jobseekers to the website.”
