Data published by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply (CIPS) and Markit for its Construction Purchasing Managers' Index shows that purchasing activity has increased as job cuts have fallen.
Sarah Ledger, an economist at Markit and author of the report, said the February survey indicated "continued recovery", with output rising at the fastest rate in eight months on the back of strengthening growth of new business.
David Noble, chief executive of CIPS, added: "A weather-beaten UK construction sector is showing signs of repair, with stronger rates of activity and a rise in new business continuing the reversal of fortune since the end of 2010."
The report follows the publication of the Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing purchasing managers index, which revealed that jobs growth in the manufacturing sector, including sales recruitment positions, rose to a record high in February.
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.
