Careers in the Building Industry - Lego Film which features unique “stop-motion” Lego animation aims to reach out to both young people and parents

The NHBC Foundation has launched a new online Lego film aimed directly at young people to highlight the many benefits of a house-building career including: great training opportunities, wide career choice with good earning potential and rewarding work creating a lasting legacy. When asked about house-building, young people could often identify jobs in the trades such as bricklaying and plumbing but, apart from architecture, were largely unable to identify technical, professional and managerial job areas.
