Image & Recruitment
Construction will need almost half a million new recruits between now and 2010. So as well as the traditional pool of male school leavers, we need to attract more graduates, more women, older people and ethnic minorities.
CONSTRUCTION: A POSITIVE CAREER CHOICE FOR ALL
The issue The idea The progress The commitment The results

THE ISSUE

For construction to successfully recruit and retain the brightest and the best of today’s young people, we need to work with 5-19 year olds, schools, colleges and careers advisers. However, responsibility also lies with employers - to ensure that the industry these young people join is an exciting and rewarding one which offers real career progression.

Our regional teams of education advisers and Positive Image advertising campaigns have significantly increased applications for construction courses. The emphasis is now on attracting the best quality recruits to enter the industry, and to gather them from as diverse a pool of talent as possible.
