Construction set to drive UK economic recovery

According to the CPA (Construction Products Association), the Construction sector is predicted further growth of 23%  by 2018. These statistics are reinforced by CIBT (Construction Industry and Training Board) who predict as many as as 200,000 new jobs being created over the next 5 years.

What does this mean for the sector and how does this translate for recruitment? Figures suggest an increased confidence in the sector with companies now required to upskill their existing workforce and attract new talented recruits capable of adopting new technologies in order for businesses to maintain their competitive advantage in the workplace.

One reported problem however is the lack of interest expressed by young talent in a career in construction.  This is a problem as  economic growth depends on finding this talent to fuel it.

The challenge for any company in a volatile environment is attracting and appointing the right candidates quickly to strengthen the leadership team and bridge the skills shortage to meet modern methods of construction technologies.

Macallam Interim recognise that it is people that build success and the breadth and scale of our experience enables us to appoint executives to help drive business  forward. We work in partnership with our clients in order to develop strong relationships that benefit all those involved.
