Skill shortage in Construction Industry?

04/01/2016

With so many new homes being built there is more demand than ever for bricklayers, plumbers and plasterers to name but a few.

Across the country development sites have been grinding to a halt which recruitment is underway.

The demand is clear but what is not certain is the answer as to why the well has run dry of these skilled workers.

The answer is that it's not just a single factor but a number of recent events which haveĀ led to this point including lack of training and apprenticeship opportunities, the recent recession and ageing workforce retraining or taking less strenuous jobs.
