The Property & Construction Sector
sector sponsor: NEARy Construction
Offering a variety of opportunities, the sector employs around three million people, generating £120billion+ each year for the UK economy.
Areas within this sector include Architecture, Surveying, Construction Management, Conservation, Property Development, Town planning etc.
According to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), workers in construction saw their wages increase by more than 6% in 2015 - compared with 2% across the rest of the workforce. This was partly due to a skills shortage, with professionals such as quantity surveyors among those in particularly high demand.
