Construction Engineering Workers on Demand

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has revealed a survey today showing engineering and construction professionals have become the most sought workers in the UK.

Overall, the survey, which is co-produced by KPMG, showed that companies are spending more on hiring permanent employees as opposed to part-time employment.

However, the highest increase in hiring full-time employees has been in the construction engineering sector which hired more people due to recent infrastructure projects and the substantial government investment into such projects.

The survey also reported that the rise in full-time recruitment was linked to higher client activity as well as the government’s commitment to cut red tape for small and medium businesses.

Head of business services at KPMG, Bernard Brown, welcomed the positive findings of the survey explaining that the rise of demand in permanent staff suggest the economy is recovering from the financial crises at 2008.

Mr Brown said: “There are signs within some industries that things are looking up. Amongst the engineering, construction and IT sectors demand for permanent staff has increased since the turn of the year. With so much attention being paid to these sectors at the moment, close attention should be paid to see if this is a trend set to continue as the year progresses.”

Bids for £22 million London NHS Unit Open for Builders

King’s College NHS Trust is looking for a building contractor to build a three-storey critical care unit at one of its campuses in South London – a leading publication in the building sector, Construction Engineer, has announced today.

Firms are invited to express an interest in the redevelopment of King’s College NHS Trust until 22nd February for invitation to tender a month later.

The winning contractor will build a new steel frame building over an existing block, which will remain operational, and complete the shell before demolishing elements of the existing structure.

It is not clear yet how many builders will be employed as a result of King’s College renovation, but the scale of the project suggests it will create new jobs in the building sector.

International construction and property consultancy Sweett will attain the building through a two stage process which further details will be revealed in March.

The scheme has been designed to allow the existing theatre block to continue to operate whilst building work is being carried out.

The project will deliver a consolidated critical care facility at Kings College Hospital Denmark Hill Campus in line with current Department of Health guidelines and will develop the hospital as a Major Trauma Centre.

King’s expects the contract will be at its final stage by August this year.

For more information on how you can express an interest and put your bid forward please visit Tenders website.
