Tradespersons could benefit from construction output increase

Workers who have taken electrician or plumber training courses could find themselves in demand, after it was announced by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) that construction output had grown in the third quarter of this year.

According to the figures, the sector expanded by two per cent between July and September, with quarterly increases in housing and non-housing repair and maintenance being seen.

The chief economist at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics) Simon Rubinsohn commented that the statistics could mean that the industry is beginning to gradually pick up.

"Data released [on Friday] by the ONS shows, on the face of it, the construction sector to be emerging from a deep recession," he said.

Tradespersons with approved qualifications could find the figures pleasing, as there may now be an increasing amount of people needing electrical or plumbing work carried out.

Rics was established in 1868 and currently has close to 100,000 qualified members.
