Construction Recruitment is Growing in the UK
Construction recruitment is always on a rise in the UK. In one form or the other, a large section of UK population is engaged in the jobs related to the construction sector. This sector employed 7% of the working population (counts to 2.2 million and above) as per the Office of National Statistics figures published in 2009. Even though the economy is not in a good condition, still by the end of 2012, the number is expected to exceed more than 2.8 million.
Most of these constructions works are generated from the sector of commercial properties and the housing projects. The construction jobs are available all across the UK, but South East and London are the most prominent sectors. This is because the building projects and infrastructure work are huge over here in the form of Cross-Rail tunneling project, the Thames Gateway regeneration scheme, or the 2012 Olympics. A leading recruitment Sheffield firm mentions that jobs in the construction sector are always steady and one of the least affected sectors of economic downturn.
New recruitment is high every year in the construction sector. During the peak of recession in 2008, it was predicted that 88,000 people will be recruited in this sector between the period of 2008 and 2012 by Construction Skills Network and the prediction seems to be true.
According to the experts, the demand of workforce in the construction sector is going to rise because of many reasons. One such reason is the sustainability and carbon reduction policy. Existing constructions will be refurbished for energy efficiency and all the existing facilities will cut down on the waste, which will give a rise to more work in the construction sector. Because of the availability of the micro generation facilities and various schemes by the construction companies, the homeowners are keener to renovate their homes for better improvements. This is surely going to increase the possibilities of more construction jobs in UK.
Infrastructure for telecommunications, energy and transport needs to be developed and maintained constantly and for that construction recruitment is vital.
If you are interested to take a job in this sector then you can contact some of the recruitment agencies and search for the suitable jobs. Online is the best source to lookup for these agencies and the available jobs in the construction sector. This sector is growing consistently in the UK and it is the time to grab your opportunity.
