West Midlands recruitment agencies which find employees for the region's construction companies, are seeking talented individuals who can help accelerate the drive for best practice within the industry, thereby increasing its efficiency and competitiveness.
Employment opportunities within the field of construction are wide ranging and varied. The types of skills needed include bricklaying, plumbing, electrical, painting and roof tiling. A successful construction industry also ensures continuing employment for those who supply its materials such as flooring manufacturers, sanitary ware manufacturers and kitchen designers.
The campaign to realise construction standards that are second to none in this heavily populated part of the UK which encompasses the cities of Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton, is spearheaded by The West Midlands Centre for Constructing Excellence.
The Centre's aim is to help local construction firms develop by promoting the exchange of knowledge between these companies and their members of staff, thereby raising standards within the industry.
This exchange of knowledge is facilitated by a number of projects such as "best practice" clubs and a programme of demonstrations.
The Centre also keeps local construction companies up to date on potential business opportunities, provides links with other business sectors and supplies general information on construction related matters.
