Industry projects suggest that around 179,000 roles will need to be filled in the next five years across the UK. In Enfield alone the Meridian Water project will see 10,000 new construction roles and there are many other large scale construction projects in the borough over the coming years.
Construction roles are now much more than bricks and mortar! For information on the wide range of roles within the construction sector, visit Construction Industry Training Board’s list of career options.
If you are seeking a career change or a starting your career later in life then there are lots of construction roles you can find and many companies looking to recruit older candidates. For information on how you can use your transferable skills to change career or start work in construction after a career break, visit CITB’s list of transferable skills and careers.
