Helping young people find their first jobs, apprenticeships, traineeships and work experience in construction and the built environment.
Talentview Construction will enable candidates to browse opportunities by signing up to alerts for job and training opportunities, get advice on construction job roles and the best routes into the industry, and build their own online profile so employers can find them.
Employers can use it to showcase their business to talented new recruits and upload all their early career vacancies, including traineeships, apprenticeships and graduate jobs. They can also search for suitable candidates and directly contact students and apprentices, as well as connecting more closely with schools, universities and construction colleges.
Employers can sign up or ask for a demonstration of the new portal – call Christian Warden on 07903 701503
