More young women take on traditional male job roles

It seems the current economic situation isn't just having an impact on our bank accounts. The surge in University fees has led to more women taking a different, more trade-based career.

Plumbing, building and electrical engineering are all seeing an increase in sign ups, and a recent poll by the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting showed that 63% of 16-24-year-old women are considering learning a trade rather than a profession, as a decent skill will remain useful for life.

Fifty years ago, it was common for people to stay in the same job or company their entire life. Now, with various lifestyle and external factors, staying in the same job for more than a few years is considered unusual.

Surely more tradespeople and more choice can only be a good thing. Particularly when several of the industries could do with a bit of a reputation revamp.

What do you think about these figures?
