Housebuilding Recruitment Agencies Directory
Housebuilding is an extremely important area within the Construction Industry, and is responsible for a major portion of the revenue generated by the sector each year. There are currently about 20,000 registered builders in the UK, producing more than 150,000 new homes annually. This building pace, however, has proven insufficient compared with the rate of annual population growth in the UK, and the government recently announced a desire to increase homebuilding targets. As a result, the sector is expected to add additional jobs under the impetus of governmental stimulus plans.
Job roles and recruitment in Housebuilding
Employment options in the field range widely, and professionals are recruited for a multitude of diverse roles. Site Management, Sales, Marketing, Architecture, and Construction are all important aspects of the homebuilding process, and the field draws in workers from a variety of backgrounds.
The sector has become increasingly focused on environmental efficiency and sustainable building practices in recent years, creating a particular need for specialists in environmental impact assessment and urban planning. It is estimated that modern houses are 40% more energy efficient than those of a decade ago, but Builders are constantly seeking new areas for improvement.
Employment prospects vary widely throughout the UK and are often contractually dependent. Unlike many other industries, however, a majority of jobs are based outside of London.
