Jobs Boost In Building And Construction


8:42am 14th November 2013

There's been a significant rise in the number of jobs being created in the building and construction industry according to Weymouth based recruitment firm Frontline.

They say one in ten of their new clients are in the building and construction sector and that figure is continuing to rise.

They say the industry was badly affected by the recession and this shows the economy is now strengthening.

Tony Wilmot, director of Frontline Recruitment, said: "We've seen a healthy rise in demand for staff from the building and construction sector, which is fantastic.

"The industry was badly affected by the recession, so to see such a positive result in the number of companies looking to increase their staff numbers within the sector is very good news indeed - it's a positive indicator that the economy is stabilising and rebuilding."

According to the ONS statistics, new house-building work was the main contributor to the growth in output, having experienced a 1.6% rise since July.   

Tony added: "It's a great sign that new builds are becoming profitable and in demand once more. We're really pleased that companies from the construction industry are coming to Frontline to secure more staff for their new developments."
