Construction Recruitment

The UK's construction industry is freeing itself from the grips of the recent economic recession. Confidence is returning to the sector, which currently employs 2 million people, with business headcount set to rise with the increase of building and infrastructure projects across the country.

Whilst building service firms are hiring again, this means that there is higher competition for quality candidates with an abundance of choice for jobseekers looking to carve out their niche within construction.


Recruiting within the construction market requires a strong understanding of how the industry works across both technical and professional disciplines. Eden Scott is highly regarded within the sector, with experience spanning 10 years.
