Technical Support

Entry to the technical support careers in the construction sector is either through work and further education studies, or by completion of a qualification before entering the sector. For those choosing to gain a qualification first, then there are opportunities to complete further and professional qualifications when employed in the sector and progress to supervisory or managerial roles. Those wishing to move into technical roles will be able to transfer the skills and knowledge they have acquired in another field of the industry into technician jobs.

There are opportunities to progress in the construction sector and many people start their own companies. Career paths in the sector tend to vary as people train and begin to specialise. To progress to technician level, there are a wide range of qualifications available, many of which are industry endorsed, including HNC’s/HND’s and NVQ’s.
Careers in technical support suit people who are good organisers and strong communicators and all will have strong business skills.
