BUILDING & CONSTRUCTION

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday & Friday

The importance of the Building and construction sector within the recruitment market is highlighted in that it accounts for nearly 2 million jobs in the UK, that amounts to 6.2% of all workforce jobs. The capital is predicted to see growth in the construction sector over the next 4 years with average annual increases of 1.9%, performing better than the UK as a whole. London's construction employment is also estimated to be at a high of nearly 350,000 by 2017 and with the government’s continued support of the help-to-buy scheme and planned improvements to the UK’s road and rail infrastructure, the recruitment growth in the industry will continue for years to come. London's continued growth means that the capital acts as a magnet for those who currently work in or wish to work in the building & construction industry, providing employers with a huge pool of talent to recruit from so it's no surprise that there are over 1.6 million adults who who have completed a trade apprenticeship or other qualification at level 3 (BTEC, NVQ etc) in London alone. Metro (London) and the Evening Standard reach 2.5 million Londoners - no other national newspaper can provide greater coverage.

  • 2,489,000Adults - more than any other national newspaper
