What is Building People?
A technology platform that brings together supply and demand across the Built Environment (architecture, engineering and construction)
Improving diversity and inclusion
Driving a supply of competent workers
Maximising and evidencing social value
Building People has a simple plan: Create one place where the many disparate skills and employment initiatives across the Built Environment are brought together. Drive traffic to what already exists. Add value. Connect people to jobs, mentors, learning and to work opportunities via existing providers. No duplication nor reinvention. Measure and report on the social value these activities generate. Join the dots
We are developing a technology platform to enable an ecosystem of employment and skills providers (supply) to more efficiently and effectively connect people to relevant industry learning, mentoring and work opportunities (demand).
