What is Work Radar?

Work Radar helps apprentices, tradespeople and small businesses find work on construction projects. Work Radar is FREE to join and helps local people win more work.

Each user is given a profile where they can upload apprentice information, CSCS card details and qualifications (if applicable). Users are then able to view large UK construction projects and be connected to local work-winning contractors seeking apprentices, tradespeople or subcontractors.

Once you have a position, you can pause your profile until you are ready to start seeking work again i.e. at the end of a project/at the end of your apprenticeship.

Work Radar helps all those seeking work in construction including placing ex-forces, ex-offenders and people released on temporary licence with contractors willing to support their journey back into the workforce. If you meet one of the above criteria, please register as a tradesperson.
