Working within the construction industry has often proved to be the right decision for many workers looking for a long and rewarding career with opportunities to build on their skills as they gain experience and enjoy a good income and standard of living.
The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) predicts the construction industry will require almost a quarter of a million extra workers by 2019. That’s around 45,000 additional construction vacancies each year, across the UK. Building companies at all levels will suffer a major shortfall in staff and there will be an increased demand for skilled workers.
With sustained growth returning to the sector and earnings going up, there’s never been a better time to join the Plumbing, Gas and Electrical workforce and build a successful and long-lasting vocation.
The ‘UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES)’ released a report highlighting the star jobs from all sectors of employment that are predicted to rise, and Electrician unsurprisingly, is in the top ten with a massive 70,000 new job openings nationwide forecasted between 2012 – 2022.
We live in a powered-up world and people will always need electricians to keep that power running smoothly! The industry of energy and electricity is getting even more switched-on, with mobile-controlled homes and new ways of supplying power, your pathway choices have been more diversified than ever.
A vocation in the electrical industry will give you the skills to take home a good earning while doing work that is not only respected in the construction industry, but challenging and fulfilling too.
