2012 Olympics: Construction Jobs

The London 2012 Olympic games have created a possible 5,000+ construction jobs throughout the main building site area. However, to apply for the 2012 Oympics construction jobs you must apply online through sites such as the Jobcentre Plus. Although general qualifications may be necessary for some roles, the ODA (Olympic Delivery Authority) sets out specific rules about who it will allocate it positions to.

There are a wide range of roles available about the Olympic Park, from management to trade operatives. Some job roles include:

  • Operatives
  • Traffic Officers
  • Industrial electricians
  • Plumbers
  • General groundworkers
  • Highway construction
  • Landscape labourers
  • Pipe Fitters
  • Plant Mechanics
  • Plant operators
  • Welders
  • Civil engineers
  • Quality surveyors
  • Surveyors
  • Office administrators
  • Cleaners
  • Caterers
  • Data entry/document controllers
  • Yard operatives
  • Security officers.

The ODA has a Jobs Skills Future Fund which aims to seek out people who have been unemployed for longer periods than other workers, instead of hiring contract workers who have a track record of steady jobs. Their main aim is to employ anyone with the skills to carry out the work but have not found employment in the last year or later. 7% of the workforce on-site at the Olympic Park are made up of people who were previously unemployed.

The Jobs Skills Future Fund scheme also works to help groups that are typically unrepresented in construction work and develop their skills to gain future employment. These groups include young people (i.e., school leavers or young people who have never found employment), apprentices, women, disabled people, Asian people or others from ethnic minority groups.

You can apply for 2012 Olympics construction jobs at your local jobcentre, or local employment agency.
