Finding Construction Jobs in the UK

Finding Construction Jobs in the UK

The first step towards finding a construction job in the UK is to search for it on Google. You will come across different results on multiple pages; many of these vacancies would be unfitting. You can use filters to see the jobs in your location or the locations where you are open to relocating. This entire process could be tedious and exhausting if you do not find the desired job postings.

Here a few examples of construction jobs that are available in the UK market:

  • Building Engineer
  • General Labourer
  • Floor Fitter
  • Scaffolder
  • Fabric Technician
  • Carpet Fitter
  • Asbestos Removal Operatives
  • Dry Liners

To make the job-hunting process simpler for you, here are a few steps that you can follow: 

Visit Company Websites

You can visit companies’ websites that have a separate Careers page to look for construction jobs. When you directly approach them through their website, you can know about the company by seeing their clients, specialities, ongoing projects, delivered projects, locations, and the responsibilities assigned to the job role.

Suppose the company where you are applying keeps their website updated and regularly checks the job applications received through their website. In that case, you have a good chance of receiving communication from them. Many companies’ website job application process is outdated. In such a case, it is best to call them on the phone number or email them on the email id given on their website.  

Check League Tables

There are many industry sources such as Barbour ABI or Fast Track that annually publish league tables of consultancies and contractors. You can use these tables to go through important information about the company, such as how busy they are or their total number of employees or their turnover. These tables offer you a quick and basic glance on the overall status and health of a company. Some of the companies also share details such as the types of projects they have, the locations where they are working, and their recent contract awards.  

Talk to a Recruitment Consultant

Recruitment consultants do not just share the list of open jobs, but they also save your time and prepare you for interviews. They will also help you in creating an appealing CV that showcases your strengths and skills. As the consultants are already in contact with the companies, they handle the relationship building on your behalf. They also have information about the kind of personality the employer is looking for, and this information helps you in your interview.
