Steve Turner, head of communications at the Home Builders Federation, said that it is vital that the skills needed to secure the future of the industry are developed.
The expert made the comments after a report by the cross-industry Construction Apprenticeship Task Force (CCATF) claimed that the government must help the construction industry employ young people to avoid a future skills gap.
"Undoubtedly we need to find a way of ensuring we have got the skills that are required for the future. If you look at house building, you have got a very challenging agenda including zero carbon homes that are going to need a skilled workforce," Mr Turner explained.
He added that the building industry itself will have a part to play in creating the construction sales jobs and other roles, but the government also needs to play a part.
The Aaron Wallis Construction and M&E sales team offer many construction sales jobs across the sector. For employers Aaron Wallis offer a construction sales recruitment service that offers 12 month rebate and psychometric profiling within a single fixed recruitment price.
