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”.

If you’re looking for Trades and Labour staff, labouring agencies, or temporary recruitment agencies specialised in White Collar roles in Construction, don’t waste your time on a search engine, or calling agencies one by one. You can simply post your request on TempaGoGo and agencies with available staff should get back to you within 5 minutes.

Hiring temps in Manchester

Manchester's business scene is very varied - from traditional manufacturing companies, to more recently, digital and technology startups, and growing at a fast pace! If you're looking for staff in Manchester to help you grow your business, look no further! TempaGoGo helps you find local recruitment agencies, matched to your exact needs and working location.

Manchester is a city in the county of Greater Manchester, England and falls within the M3 postcode district and in 2017 saw average earnings of £34,751 per annum. Manchester has a population of around 520,739 and is the UK's 7th largest town.

Historically, it was the world’s first industrialised city, which fell into decline, but over the past decade has grown faster than London in economic terms.

It is home to both the wealthy but also many living below the breadline - on some measures, it is the 4th most deprived local authority in England.

Manchester University is considered one the UK’s best educational establishments, ranked just behind Cambridge and Oxford. This is helping the city becoming an economic knowledge-led centre. It is a key location for many foreign companies, and home to more than half of the North West’s top 500 enterprises. Therefore in Manchester the biggest employment sectors are professional, scientific & technical, accommodation & food services and business administration & support services.

Manchester’s employment headcount was estimated to be at 467,900 in Q3 2018, and expected to grow to 475,000 in Q3 2019, according to the Centre for Economics and Business Research, a faster growth rate than London.

Manchester has a larger proportion of working population employed in the manufacturing sector (19.0% vs. 16.6% across the country), and larger proportion of economically active people without qualifications (9.8% vs. 7.8% in the UK).

While affected by the decline in manufacturing (and in particular the reduction in car sales) in the country, Manchester is also home to very successful companies in the digital, technology, healthcare and creative sectors, which are performing well and driving the growth in employment in the city.

Manchester’s attractiveness is also supported by the Northern Powerhouse initiative launched by the 2010-2015 coalition government to boost the British economy outside London, thanks to heavy investments in Transport (e.g., £100m investment in the Ordsall Chord linking Manchester Picadilly and Manchester Victoria, potential investment in High Speed 3 linking Manchester to Leeds), the Arts (£110m invested in The Factory theater) and Technology.

Adidas, Siemens, Kellogg’s, boohoo.com, The Co-operative Group, Henri Lloyd, Autotrader, booking.com amongst many others have head offices located in Manchester. In August 2019, it was revealed that MoneySuperMarket had chosen Manchester to relocate its technology and data staff.

The average hourly pay in Manchester for full-time workers, at £13.30 / hour, is slightly lower than the UK average, at £14.35 per hour. Paying candidates the market rate is important to be able to attract the best. If you don't know what to pay for your temporary staff, do not fear! TempaGoGo suggests you what you should typically pay for the vacancy you're looking to fill.
