Talentview Construction
Launches 21 September 2021: a Government-backed early careers platform for the construction industry; the place for talented people to find first jobs, apprenticeships and work experience.

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.

Showcase your business

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.

Request a demo

Employers can sign up or ask for a demonstration of the new portal – call Christian Warden on 07903 701503 

It is estimated that the construction industry needs to recruit more than 217,000 new workers between now and 2025 to support its current activity, including the development of exciting new careers in digitalisation and sustainability.

Talentview Construction makes it easier for those searching for such a career in construction to join, taking advantage of an exciting array of opportunities, given the sector’s role at the heart of the UK’s economic recovery. Construction already employs about three million people, providing multiple career paths through the sector.
