CITB research into the experiences of non-UK construction workers

Published: March 28, 2017

CITB has commissioned IFF Research and the Institute of Employment Research (IER) to undertake an important piece of research into the experiences of non-UK workers in the construction sector across Great Britain. This research will help inform industry by identifying current and potential skills needs.

What does the research involve?

IFF Research would like construction workers who do not hold a UK passport to complete a short 5-minute online survey about their experiences. The survey will be offered in a number of different languages.

How will the information be used?

The information will only be used by CITB and IFF Research to understand more about the role of non-UK workers in the construction industry and plan for future training needs. IFF Research are an independent market research agency who follow the guidance of the Market Research Society Code of Conduct. Your details will be held securely by IFF Research and will not be passed on to any other parties or used for any purpose other than this research project.

How can I help?

Taking part in the research is completely voluntary. To provide details of your experiences working in construction in Great Britain, please visit
