We know that the construction sector in Zambia needs more skilled workers. We want to work together to build a skilled workforce.

Help us help you

We are looking for organisations and contractors who share our vision of a brighter future for our young people. Organisations who support learning and skills development, and can provide a safe working environment for our young trainees.

We continue working to expand the number of organisations we work with across Zambia who can:

  • Offer work placements: We aim for our trainees to gain at least three months experience on construction projects. This is a very important part of their training and development. Build It staff are on hand to support organisations through this process.
  • Offer job opportunities. After their training we want to get our trainees into work. We are encouraged by the growing number of enquiries we are receiving from local contractors looking for skilled workers.

In return we will train workers:

  • With quality and industry relevant skills; workers who are less likely to make mistakes improving the efficiency of your organisation and reducing material wastage
  • Who will help organisations to meet requirements set out by the National Council for Construction (NCC)
  • Who have greater awareness of Occupational Health and Safety to keep people safe on work sites


What can we do to help more employers develop a genuine interest and commitment to skills development? Facilitating this discussion remains a key area of work for us. If you would like to find out more about our work with contractors and partners, please contact our Affiliate Relations Team on +260 976 165 629 / +260 973 105 052, or +260 211 267 715.

We are delighted to have workers from Build It who can carry out work professionally and with understanding of the scope of works as they are trained; it takes out the burden of supervision
