Steve Turner, head of communications at the Home Builders Federation, said that the coalition needs to place more of a focus on getting young people into the construction sector if it is to flourish in the coming years.
His comments follow the publication of a report by the Cross-Industry Construction Apprenticeship Task Force, which claimed that the government must help the construction industry employ young people if a skills gap is to be avoided in future years.
Mr Turner commented: "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."
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.
