Your Life is a three year campaign which aims to show young people, especially girls, that the mathematics and science students of today will be the CEOs of tomorrow.
Carillion is the lead corporate partner for the construction and business services sectors and has committed to increasing the number of its female apprentices by five per cent over the next five years and developing a tailor made “introduction to engineering and technology for girls” module for schools.
We see this as an important part of our long term strategy to help develop the skills that will enable our business to succeed in 10 years’ time. We know that over the next five years the construction sector alone will grow by 2.2 per cent annually, creating 182,000 new jobs across the sector. We will need talented people who have STEM skills to fill these jobs.
The campaign is supported by government and led by a team of Your Life ambassadors comprising ten of the country’s most successful and inspiring entrepreneurs and scientists, and some of the UK’s leading employers from each sector, including Carillion.
