Working in the construction sector means that you participate in the construction of, for example, houses, factories, roads and railways. You often use machines and various advanced aids in your work, but if you are interested in older methods and crafts, you can specialize and work with e.g. building renovation.

The construction industry needs more people and especially more women. In the construction industry, there are many different professions to choose from, but often the work means that you need to work some distance from home, sometimes maybe even move to another place or another country. It is quite common to commute weekly.
