Overview

Construction. A thoroughly nice company, the only one of the majors (as far as we know) to have its own specialised subsidiaries for all the major trades rather than using sub-contractors. Lots of outside work, with plenty of moving around to whichever site they are working on. Has had a female CEO, so very open to making construction female-friendly.
