Tyne And Wear Construction recruitment agency listing

The construction industry is one of the biggest in the UK and is accountable for around 3 million jobs in the country. Construction covers many areas of employment including civil engineering, construction of buildings and manufacturing of products and supplies around £90 billion to the country's economy. The sector is supported by national and specialist recruitment agencies looking to place candidates for positions such as site manager and welder.

Construction can be well paid and the average worker in the UK earns around £30K. This figure is slightly distorted though due to the shear diversity of the job roles. Despite the recession, the sector has remained fairly steady in the Tyne and Wear region and the average construction salary here is around £37K. This salary is generally more expected of a manager though, with earnings varying wildly between £25K and £50K depending on title and experience. Typical positions in the industry can include bids manager, maintenance, carpenter and design technician.

The most common route into the field is non graduate with many of the positions being considered manual positions. Despite this, there is a lack of graduate skilled candidates for management and project management roles within the industry which is causing some concern. Management and supervisor type positions may require some further training and qualifications with the NEBOSH National Certificate of Health and Safety being one of note. More specialists areas such as town planning may need some postgraduate study in order to enter that field of expertise. The majority of construction companies are small to medium size companies, but the best prospect of entering the field may be to become self employed.
