7 reasons why a career in plant machinery is a good choice

There are numerous advantages to working in the construction industry today, so much so that many choose to stay in the line of work their whole lives. But why should you choose a career in plant operation specifically? Here are 7 great reasons why you should consider getting trained up in the industry.

It’s the backbone of construction


If you want to work in construction long term, then it’s pretty much essential that you undergo a plant machinery course. Not only do you need a CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme Card) to get employed, but construction plants are the backbone of the industry. If you’re not trained up in plants before starting construction work, it’s likely your employer will offer you the chance to.

The salary is great


The yearly salary for construction plant operators is often higher than the national average, with some workers earning a wage exceeding £30,000 a year. You’ll likely be able to progress with experience, too, whether that’s into construction management, estimating, lift planning or supervision.

The work is motivating


Unlike the typical desk job, working as a plant operator gives you the chance to work outdoors daily, taking on an ever-changing work schedule and seeing the results of your hard work quickly. The more work you put in, the more you’ll get out of a job as an operator, which most find super motivating.

Jobs are reliable


Job opportunities within the construction industry are continuously increasing, and employers are known to favour those who are certified in plant machinery. If you’re looking for job security, this is the career for you.

Stay active


Working on a construction site day in, day out is great for keeping both the body and mind fit and healthy. If you’ve ever worked a desk job before, you’ll know how tiring it can get- work in plant operation to get your daily dose of the outdoors every day.

You don’t need a degree


Thousands end up in debt every year after finishing their degree. While plant machinery operators need to do formal training, you can choose to learn now and pay later for courses through us thanks to our finance option.

You’re helping the community


Sure, you’ll be getting paid for your work, but being employed in the construction industry is also helping the community to thrive on a daily basis - whether that’s working on schools, hospitals, roads, or homes. So many plant operators take pride in their ability to improve communities.
