Survey reveals gap in equal opportunities in trade roles

A survey of 669 adults in the UK found that 66% of women surveyed said they believe men and women are not offered equal opportunities in trade roles, while 60% of men believed that women are given equal chances.

The survey also found that 82% of men and 81% of women would be surprised if their drainage engineer was a woman. These findings come despite previous research by Direct Line showing the number of women working in the trade industry rose by 120% between 2009 and 2019.
