construction industryNew builds and developments are going on across the UK and contracts for new plans are being won by companies every week. The increase in construction work has meant more workers are being required across all trades on building sites up and down the UK. Whether they are Carpenters, Bricklayers, or even Electricians and Plumbers, the industry is needing workers.

The higher demand for workers means the skills shortage is still an ongoing issue. More work is being planned on a regular basis, both commercial properties and housing developments are high on the agenda, however, the lack of skilled workers is damaging the progress of work being completed.

Some bigger projects are paying very high prices and are the places to be when working on-site especially in the capital of London. One of the biggest builds across London currently is attracting nearly every Electrician working in the capital and this is the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium which will have a capacity of over 60,000.

The levels of building work across the UK are extremely high and all you need to do is have a drive around your area and you are bound to see a new housing development or some other big builds, especially in London. It has increased the need for skilled workers in all trades and the need will just get bigger as the government look to meet house building targets.

High levels of building work resulting in a need for workers offers a fantastic opportunity for those currently looking for a new career. The construction industry is offering opportunities for those with the right skills and qualifications to work on-site.

Here at Able Skills, we offer all the qualifications needed to gain you work on-site in your chosen trade. To get any work on-site you'll need a CSCS Card and you can only apply for one of these once you've achieved an NVQ in your trade. We offer NVQ training across all construction trades, including electrics and plumbing.
