Women In Construction – What are the benefits?

Sophie is passionate about helping young women enter the construction industry.
Regrettably, female tradies make up less than 2% of the construction industry. Opting for a career as a female painter offers a powerful opportunity to challenge this norm and promote greater gender diversity within the construction sector. If you are a young woman looking to enter the construction industry, check out some of the benefits of becoming a painter below:

  • Work-Life Balance: Painters typically enjoy favourable working hours. At SG Coatings, our standard work hours are from 7am to 3pm, Monday to Friday, allowing ample time for maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
  • Experience Stunning Architecture and Scenic Views: Specialising in coastal properties across the Mornington Peninsula, our painting company offers the opportunity to work in breathtaking environments with magnificent homes and sweeping ocean vistas—a perk unparalleled in many other professions.
  • Variety and Excitement: Say goodbye to the monotonous 9-5 office routine. Each day brings new projects, challenges, and heights to conquer, fostering a dynamic work environment that keeps motivation and enthusiasm levels high.
  • Immediate Gratification: Contrary to popular belief, watching paint dry can be surprisingly fulfilling. Witnessing the tangible progress of your work at the end of each day offers a sense of accomplishment that few other professions can match.
  • Inclusive Career Path: Painting is a trade that welcomes both women and men. Despite women representing less than 2% of the construction industry, there are numerous benefits to pursuing a career as a female painter. By breaking stereotypes and embracing diverse talent, we can create a more inclusive and equitable workforce.
