It’s no secret—the construction industry has been dealing with a severe skills shortage at every level.
An aging workforce combined with a growing preference of white-collar jobs over trades has resulted in this problem. The industry itself is always busy and the need for new transportation infrastructure and buildings—particularly schools, hospitals, public housing as well as commercial buildings—has increased dramatically. While at the same time, the talent needed to complete these important projects has decreased significantly.
Check out the list of the roles we are actively recruiting for.
