To make sure that you are able to apply for the best roofing vacancies on construction sites across the UK, you should first apply for a Roofer CSCS Card. CSCS cards are used on sites all over the country and it is quite difficult to obtain work on a construction site without one these days. There are several different types of cards that you can apply for: the right one for you will depend on your level of experience and qualifications. Whichever one you apply for, you can book a test at a local centre on our website right now and use our comprehensive revision materials to prepare.
Do You Need a Red, Green, Blue, Gold or Black Roofer CSCS Card?
Trainees/Apprentices – If you have no qualifications and you are still learning your trade, a Red CSCS Card is the right choice for you.
General Labourers – If you work as part of a roofing team but you are not an experienced roofer yourself, the Green CSCS Card is probably the most suitable option. Assuming you have a RQF Level 1, SCQF Level 4/5 or NOCN certificate, together with general site experience, you should be able to obtain a Green CSCS Card.
Skilled Roofers – A Blue Roofer CSCS Card is the best option for skilled roofers who hold Level 2 NVQ/SVQ qualifications.
Supervisors – If you have Level 3 or Level 4 NVQ/SVQ qualifications and you work in supervisory roofing positions, a Gold CSCS Card is your best option.
Managers – Roofing specialists who normally work in managerial positions and who hold a degree or a relevant HNC/HND qualification should consider applying for a Black CSCS Card.
