Construction Sector overview

The construction industry is one of the leading and most important industries within the UK economy. Construction touches the lives of everyone in society, from the homes we live in, the roads and rail network that we travel on and the office or factory building we work in.

The construction sector is a jobs creator and provides jobs for people from all educational backgrounds. Every £1 invested in the industry, construction generates £2.84 in total economic activity. The construction sector is a good indicator of how the economy is fairing as a whole, with roughly 10% of the UK workforce employed in this industry and contributing over £90 billion to the UK economy.

TALENTi have worked within the construction industry since our inception and have built long-lasting relationships with clients across the UK and beyond.

We expect the construction sector to represent a significant contributor to our business in the future.
