According to a recent survey by employment website www.reed.co.uk the UK is enjoying a growth in its job market with vacancies increasing by 16% in the last year.
The data from Reed shows that the construction industry is “leading the charge” for the second year running. Opportunities in this industry have increased 67% year-on-year and 3% month-on-month.
While the construction jobs market is picking up across the board, with particular growth in Scotland, this upsurge is certainly being lead by new employment opportunities within the construction industry. With much talk of the UK’s economy returning to growth, a substantial portion of this can be directly attributed to the strength of the construction industry in the last few years.
