More information

With a population of roughly 500,000 people, Cumbria is a county relatively sparse in population and low in demand for construction roles. It is a county known more for its vibrant tourism industry, a growing presence in manufacturing and large public sector. But alongside these other fields, there are still opportunities available for applicants seeking to find employment in the construction sector through recruitment agencies.

As the largest settlement in the region, the most jobs are available in and around Carlisle. Thanks to a population increase of 12,000 within Cumbria in the last 10 years, there has been a need for construction staff to work on both public and private housing initiatives. And with major businesses such as BAE systems, Carr’s food manufacturers and Pirelli tyres and the Sellafield nuclear processing site, which is the region’s largest private employer, the need for buildings and infrastructure to support them has helped to maintain demand through the course of the recent recession.

Salaries in Cumbria are in line with national averages at between £30,000 and £35,000 a year, although this can vary considerably between senior engineering or surveying roles and part-time shifts for labourers on an hourly rate. As with other parts of the country, working hours for construction staff in Cumbria can be long and antisocial at times.
