Lothian Construction recruitment agency listing

Despite the recession, the construction industry has stayed as one of the biggest industries in the UK and contributes around £90 billion to the economy. The sector denotes many areas of employment including building construction and civil engineering and employs around 3 million people across the country. Construction is also supported by a range of recruitment agencies who look to source candidates in roles such as design technician and bricklayer.

The average construction worker in the UK is earning around £30K and this is mirrored in Lothian with workers in the industry earning in excess of this figure. This is obviously dependent on specialism and this means that salaries can vary. Job roles in the sector can include plumber, electrician and carpenter, with surveyors and site managers generally being the most lucrative titles.

Construction is one of few industries that isn't dependent on graduates physical fitness often being the main qualifier. There is however a lack of graduate skilled candidates higher up the ladder in management positions. More specialised vocations such as architect or structural engineer will require further qualifications or postgraduate study. Most vocations have associated NVQ qualifications ranging from level 3 to level 7, whereas the NEBOSH qualification for health and safety is also recommended.
