Women Working in Construction

New Zealand's infrastructure industry has a skills gap when it comes to upgrading roading networks, replacing leaky water pipes, maintaining power lines or installing faster broadband technology, to name a few. These jobs are in high-demand, can be a lot of fun, and provide varied career paths…for women just as much as men.

Girls with Hi-Vis® gives female students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, hear from inspirational women in the industry and learn what a career in the infrastructure's civil, energy, telco and water industries can offer.

The Northland Women's Infrastructure Network was created in 2016; its purpose is to increase the number of women in leadership roles, grow the visibility of women, and to provide a networking and support group for women in the infrastructure sector. They run regular Girls with Hi-Vis days at schools encouraging young women to consider jobs in the industry.
