Figures published by the Office for National Statistics reveal that total volume of construction output in the second quarter of 2010 rose by 8.6 per cent compared with the first quarter of 2010.
This can be partly attributed to the impact of the poor weather on the previous quarter's output, according to ONS, which also revealed that the amount of new projects being created rose by 9.8 per cent compared with the previous quarter.
"The total volume of construction output in the second quarter of 2010 rose by 9.1 per cent compared to the same quarter in 2009. All new work increased by 14.2 per cent and repair and maintenance increased by one per cent," it said.
A report by the British Chambers of Commerce last week noted that quarterly growth remained in positive territory in the first two quarters of 2010, which meant that employment prospects across the UK rose and staff numbers were both boosted.
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.
