Construction Enquirer News Unfilled jobs soar to 37,000, equating to 2.4 vacancies for every 100 jobs
Job vacancies in construction have risen to the highest level since official records began in 2001.
Latest Government figures from the ONS show the battle to find workers to deliver projects is intensifying as firms gear up for expansion.
In the rolling three months from June to August, one of the busiest times for construction, unfilled jobs rose to 37,000, just over 15% higher than the spring March to May period and more than double the same period a year ago.
This equates to around 2.4 vacancies for every 100 jobs in the industry.
