Construction Leadership Council Employer Survey: Routes into Industry

Published: July 5, 2023

The construction industry is experiencing major change with both demand for skilled workers and new skills happening at the same time.

The move to Net Zero is accelerating this; creating new jobs with new skills, but as importantly increasing the need for more construction workers as we build new non-fossil fuel power stations, windfarms, solar farms, infrastructure and retrofit some 29 million domestic and commercial premises.

How we can both attract people into our industry whilst skilling people up for the new ways of working in a ‘green’ economy are crucial questions for us. We must focus on all our workforce i.e. crafts, operative, professional, technical, managerial and supply chain.

To help understand the best way forward, the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) is undertaking a survey to establish the routes into our industry we currently use and views on how these need to change, as well as what other ways we might deploy.

The CLC want employers, employer organisations, trade and professional bodies from across the sector to contribute: house building, commercial, civil engineering and infrastructure, building services, related M&E and in our industry’s supply chain.

The CLC are asking people to complete the following simple survey by 28 July 2023:

The CLC hope you will find the time, in what we know are busy schedules, to help us all find the right way forward.
