Foreign investment, a domestic housing crisis and urban regeneration projects have all given the buildings sector a renewed focus and created a growing demand for talent across the industry.
At ALLEN & YORK our building recruitment team are currently focused on three main areas of growth within the sector; quantity surveying, construction project management and facilities management.
Residential and commercial building construction, as well as rail, highways and energy infrastructure, are all demonstrating increased recruitment activity, and we are working with clients on some very exciting new build projects, as well as retrofit and building maintenance positions.
"One of the reasons companies come to us to help them recruit is because technical professionals across these disciplines are hard to find and they need to tap into our specialist network. Equally we are always looking to increase our talent pool and encourage more professionals into the sector. By giving a brief overview of the career prospects in each of these three hotspots, we hope to show how diverse and rewarding the buildings jobs market can be."
