CSCS stands for the Construction Skills Certification Scheme. A CSCS card is a vital investment for jobseekers who wish to work within the UK Construction Industry. The card confirms the cardholder’s identity, industry related qualifications and training. Without a CSCS card a potential employer does not know if you have undertaken the necessary training, qualifications or have the experience to work to the universal standard.
There are many different CSCS cards and so you will need to research the card relevant to your occupation and responsibility. The Construction Skills Certification Scheme website offers a useful ‘Card Finder’ tool to help you with this.
Being a CSCS cardholder could be the difference between you successfully gaining a new role or not.
