The Duke of Gloucester’s Young Achievers Scheme

The Duke of Gloucester's Young Achievers Scheme is an opportunity for exceptional young professionals in the construction industry to be commended and celebrated for their achievements.

The finalists will be invited to have an informal meeting with the panel of judges in London, or by conference call.

The judges look for young people who have not only achieved excellence in their careers so far, but who have had to overcome barriers and challenges to get to where they are.  They also look for those who actively promote careers in construction and the built environment to young people in their communities.

The winners will receive cash prizes and a unique development opportunity through the Trust with a one year mentoring programme to enable them to make an even greater impact in the years to come.

The Awards are open for anyone under the age of 30 working in the construction industry, from across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

There are 5 categories you could enter:

  • Construction Delivery
  • Design, Planning and Architecture 
  • Engineering
