Building companies in London have hired Portuguese bricklayers on £1,000-a-week wages because of a shortage of skilled Britons, recruitment firm Manpower has said.

Able Skills are already making an attempt to fill that UK skills gap – as you can see by the below video. Everyone in our bricklaying centre is either starting out in their bricklaying career or coming towards the end of their training – getting ready to access work, sit CSCS tests and get that all important card. Able Skills is intent on providing the very best bricklaying training courses to give individuals the very best opportunity to change their career and earn good money.
