invest in a construction management
Companies will invariably look to spend less money when ever times are hard. They hope to
remain in business until the economic recovery happens. Subsequently, they're pushed in to
taking a short-term perspective, minimising training and decreasing their investment in the long
One sector to suffer is recruitment in general, and graduate recruitment especially, as often
graduates have little or no practical experience. Needlessly to say, 54% of businesses imposed a
freeze on graduate recruitment as the quantity of construction jobs dropped.
The Higher Education Careers Service Unit declared 8.9% of graduates unemployed, the worst
results since 1993. But the numbers were worse still for anyone looking for jobs in construction
and engineering, with architecture and building, mechanical engineering and civil engineering
displaying graduate unemployment rates at 10.9%, 11.8% and 11.9% respectively. All studies
revealed that graduate recruiting within the public sector had held up well, although this is unlikely
to remain the actual situation as the Comprehensive Spending Review actually starts to work.
Not only are the graduates finding themselves out of employment, but individuals already within

keep a reliable paying job.

by getting the accreditation to backup their experience, although many haven't needed the
qualifications before. There are a wide variety of BTEC construction courses on the market today,
ranging from general skilled courses, to dispute avoidance courses.
