Industry website launched to recruit for construction job boom

Industry website launched to recruit for construction job boom

With the HBF estimating that over 100,000 extra jobs have been created in the UK due to the increase in house building and associated building materials manufacturing over the past two years, a specialist website, www.housebuildingcareers.org.uk has been launched to showcase the range of jobs involved in the development of new homes and communities.

The site, which was designed following last November’s House Building Careers Summit in Stratford, London, has been welcomed by businesses and Government alike, and will be used as a tool to attract the tens of thousands of people needed to recruit and train over coming years in order to meet the Government’s housing requirements. 

Construction work began on approximately 44,000 new homes in 2014 compared to 2012, just before Help to Buy Equity Loan was launched, giving a huge boost to job numbers in house building and in the supply chain.
