Tackling the Skills Gap at CEYH May Breakfast seminar

We got another mention on a very important issue! It has been predicted that the construction industry will create around 190,000 new jobs by the end of 2018 but the growing fear is that the talent will not be there to fill those posts.

 

Julie Deeley, our Operations Manager commented:

 

“It is not about providing all the answers today, it is about opening your mind to what your company can do about meeting this skills shortage.

 

“What we need to do is get out there as much as possible and put out the word on construction and what a good career it is. We need, as a sector, to get the message out that there are many different careers you can have in construction, in particular for females.”
