Launching on 21 September 2021, Talentview Construction is a new free offering from the cross-industry team behind the Construction Talent Retention Scheme helping young people find their first jobs, apprenticeships and traineeships in construction and the built environment.
Even without the growth of ‘green jobs’, 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 new careers in digitalisation and sustainability. It’s clear that more needs to be done to attract young people to the wider industry.
ACE members can use the totally free service showcase their business to talented new recruits on the Talentview Construction site, and upload all their early career vacancies, including traineeships, apprenticeships and graduate jobs. As with the Construction Talent Retention Scheme, they can search for suitable candidates, and directly contact those interested in apprenticeships, traineeships, work experience or first roles in our industry.
As of time of writing there are already 800 employers and more than 600 apprenticeships, traineeships and entry opportunities on the site. On 21 September the website launches to candidates, so now is an opportune moment to explore the potential of the free service.
Mark Reynolds, CEO of Mace and the Construction Leadership Council’s (CLC’s) lead on skills, describes Talentview Construction as, “a shop window for all those wishing to enter the industry as new entrants and career changers – a real opportunity to attract the new skills we need and to improve the diversity of the industry.”
ACE members considering sharing opportunities on Talentview Construction are encouraged to register their interest now.
Interested in apprentices? Make sure to explore how ACE can support via TAC too.
