About Us

We’ve been working on Employment and Skills for the past 5 years, our experience working with other agencies highlighted that a neutral space for organisations to deliver activity; creating the first step in breaking down barriers for people looking for support in this area.

In October 2016 funding became available and we were able to source a premises – the idea of Under Construction became a reality and in April 2017 when we officially launched with the help of Sally Gunnell OBE. Since that date we have supported and continue to support activity offered by a number of organisations; Job Centre Plus, Kier Group, Pluss and HPC Jobs Service.

Partner organisations that support Under Construction deliver events as part of their core activity or as a group in relation to the needs of the area, always changing, not one day at Under Construction is ever the same!
