Those on electrician training courses may welcome 'improving employment market'

The number of people being employed in the house building industry is rising, in news that may be of interest to those on electrician training courses.

According to the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians, there has been a small increase in the rate of new properties being built.

Speaking on behalf of the organisation, a representative noted that some people in the sector have been laid off recently, but pointed out that the level is below that of last year, which could bode well for market recovery.

He said he hoped the recent losses are a "temporary blip" in the revival of the market.

"There has been a very small increase in private house building, but these are only currently very small and tentative steps," the spokesperson commented.

According to the Federation of Master Builders, private new and social new housing sectors experienced strong improvements in their net balances throughout the third quarter of 2009.

Some 18 per cent of respondents to the organisation's survey reported increased workloads in the private new build market.
