|If every UK construction
company committed to 2%
technical and professional
internships, over 6000
placements could be created.
Did you know that because of the economic downturn as many as 40,000 university leavers will fail to find a job within six months of graduating? For the construction sector, that’s the equivalent of an entire generation of missed talent. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Research suggests that the provision of 6,000 internships in technical and professional roles per annum in the construction industry would help to protect UK talent and break the skills shortage cycle.
The Pledge is looking to unite the UK construction industry in a common commitment to provide these opportunities, be it through graduate recruitment, internships, placements or apprenticeships, whether you have a programme in place or not.
Together, we can make it happen.
