The inaugural event will take place from 5-9 February 2024
Young people and communities are being urged to use the first-ever Birmingham Housing Week to explore career opportunities in the housing sector.
The event will centre on addressing housing provision in the city, while highlighting the investment and employment opportunities within Birmingham’s current and future housing landscape.
Young people will play a significant role in the week, with sessions covering the major challenges across the sector, as well as insight from key stakeholders on the varied careers in housing.
Participants will have the opportunity to explore career paths while also contributing to discussions about building sustainable and vibrant communities.
Stuart Penn, regional managing director at Lovell Partnerships, said: “Birmingham Housing Week provides a remarkable platform to shine a spotlight on substantial investments in advancing homes within the city.
“Our focus extends beyond the physical structures; it’s about placing communities at the heart of the plans and creating meaningful opportunities for the younger generation who can use the week to explode any myths and look beyond the hard hats and bricks and play a huge role in shaping the city’s masterplan and ensuring we have the homes and places this great city needs for the future.
“With an exceptional set of events already lined up, we are looking forward to the conversations and debates and highlighting the collaborative efforts across sectors. We’re looking forward to welcoming industry leaders and the local community alike to contribute to the shared vision to build a better Birmingham.”
