About People Wiki


Building People is creating connections across the Built Environment to address the industry challenges of skills, diversity & social value.

We are a social enterprise that doesn't believe in duplication of effort and is committed to collaborative working.

This People Wiki is where we are bringing together fragmented industry resource, making it easier for people to find information and content specific to the Built Environment, with a focus on skills and careers, diversity and inclusion, and social value.

Why Building People?

The problem: The UK needs to build, but there is a shortage of competent and experienced workers, and the workforce we have lacks diversity.

The solution: Building People is a free-to-use platform that aggregates and integrates with industry-wide activity to enable people to find employers, opportunities and resources, and employers to engage with a more diverse range of talent.

Join in to create a better connected, more diverse and inclusive Built Environment, with access to the talent it needs to solve its current and future challenges.
