What to look for when recruiting temp construction staff

Construction is one of the sectors in the UK with the highest skill shortages. If you're struggling to hire a bricklayer, a site manager or a labourer - you're not the only one! With 170,000 jobs that need to be created in the construction sector by 2023, and with more than 20% of the construction workers aged 50 or more, the situation is not going to improve any time soon, unfortunately…

The top 5 roles in highest demand are bricklayers, carpenters, labourers (in particular CSCS labourers), site supervisors and quantity surveyors.

Bricklayers: There's an estimated shortage of 15,000 bricklayers in the country, which is particularly problematic at a time when the government is pushing for an ambitious programme of new homes development.

Carpenters and Joiners: Carpenters and joiners are also in high demand, with around 60% of construction businesses reporting difficulties to hire, according to the Federation of Master Builders. Despite offering annual salaries greater around £41k, more than what some accountants earn, it's very hard to hire carpenters permanently, and a large proportion of carpenters work as self-employed contractors, facilitated by online platforms such as Checkatrade or MyBuilder.

General Labourers: General Labourers are also very difficult to find - a situation that has worsened since the Brexit referendum, as 16% of the labourers in the UK come from outside the UK.

Site Supervisors and Site Managers: 65% of construction companies are finding it to recruit site supervisors and managers, according to the CIOB, the Chartered Institute of Building. If you're looking to recruit, be aware that site supervisors will expect at the minimum £48k per year, and site managers £51k annually.

Quantity Surveyors: All construction companies, not just in the UK, but in the world, are experiencing issues recruiting quantity surveyors. Some have described it as “ a global crisis in the quantity surveying profession”.
