The UK Construction Skills Shortage

Many suspect that there is an imminent skill shortage in the UK construction industry but it’s discussed only infrequently.

It was therefore encouraging to see the publication this week of a detailed and extensive report from Arcadis, whose conclusions included,

“Britain must recruit over 400,000 people each year to deliver in line with housing and infrastructure need, equivalent of one person every 77 seconds”

Lets hope that this prompts a wider debate, within the industry and associated professions, with respect to education and training and that it places in context the contention that immigration should be reduced.
