Civil Engineering jobs on the rise as UK Infrastructure sees growth

15 Aug 2016

An upturn in any industry is great news and after a tough few years in the construction sector, we’re really pleased to be reporting a steady increase in civil engineering and infrastructure jobs.

It’s an exciting time to be working in this particular sector as we’re seeing some of our market leading clients being awarded substantial new infrastructure projects throughout the UK.

This fresh demand for civil engineering professionals has been sparked by an investment of £100bn in the infrastructure sector by UK Government as part of the National Infrastructure Delivery Plan.

The latest video from the PSR Solutions Civil Engineering Team features some of our civil engineering and infrastructure recruitment specialists sharing some of the trends they’ve been witnessing up and down the county.

Daniel Heath – Freelance Operational Consultant states that: -

‘At this point in time it’s exceptionally busy… I spend most of my day looking for top quality candidates.’

Freelance Commercial Consultant Dave Pearson is currently working within the Highways sector which is where he’s seen the biggest increase in the last 12 months: -

‘The market has seen a real upsurge in the last few years, specifically over the last 6 months… it’s a great time to be working in the industry [and] a really exciting time to be working at PSR.’.

Sam Evans – Permanent Consultant explains: -

“There’s a really good vibe across civils at the moment. We’ve got thousands of miles of smart motorways… HS2 relocating from London up to Birmingham giving the Midlands a real pivotal part to play in this ground-breaking project”.

PSR’s team of construction recruitment specialists is currently growing, as well as having recently appointed Richard Lofthouse as Business Unit Director.  Richard will oversee the strategic direction of the Civil Engineering & Infrastructure section.

Amidst this busy time Sam Evans reminds us it is important to remember that: -

‘We meet all candidates on a face-to-face basis, [which] gives us a real opportunity to drill down and find out what the candidate’s about and to come up with a really good solution to find what’s best for them going forward’.

This process ensures that both client and candidate can expect the best possible outcome from securing a placement via PSR.
