Even during the depths of the recession the property and construction sector remained an important part of the UK economy. Economic recovery is bringing increased demand for graduate-level managerial and professional posts which is expected to continue throughout the next decade.
Although thought of as traditionally dominated by low-skilled workers, 42% of the UK construction workforce are in specialised and skilled construction activities. There is a recognised shortage of graduate skills, particularly in management - project management being a common weakness. Other key skills in short supply include customer service, problem-solving, planning and organisation, and communication.
New opportunities are being created through the challenge to construction to become greener, leading to implementation of new technologies and/or changes in workforce behaviour.
