Edinburgh Construction Recruitment Agencies
Construction is one of Scotland’s most important industries and anticipated growth over the next decade means that recruiters are expected to be in much demand. This is especially true in the nation’s capital, where construction recruitment agencies in Edinburgh are expected to help employers tackle a skills gap that will enable them to meet new housing targets.
Overview of the local construction industry
Edinburgh is home to around 1,500 construction enterprises; a figure which has grown significantly since 2012 and makes it the city’s sixth-largest sector for employers. The majority of these are small businesses that employ under 50 staff, but between them, they are responsible for 9,000 local construction jobs and contribute more than £500 million to the economy.
