Welcome to Women and Manual Trades
The purpose of Women and Manual Trades (WaMT) is to make women the norm rather than the exception within the construction industry. If you do too, then please get in touch with our dynamic team – we want to hear from you.
WaMT is a programme supported by not-for-profit company, Procure Plus. Having existed as an independent charity since 1975, WaMT became part of the Procure Plus family in 2018, as both organisations due to a shared a commitment to seeing women achieve their potential within construction.
WaMT supports women who work in construction trades, or who want to work in construction trades. We also support and collaborate with a variety of construction industry employers and trade bodies.
WHAT DO WE OFFER?
Working to make tradeswomen the norm not the exception
Just 11% of people working in construction are women, and only 2% of the manual workforce are women, which is why we’re dedicated to getting more women into construction and the building trades.
