There is a lot of good news out there about construction at the moment. At Peace, we're getting more requests every day to help firms find quality candidates. However, we do know that the industry isn't out of the woods yet, which is why we're conducting a follow-up to our earlier reseach in May.
We know you've done a lot of surveys over the last few months, but please do take the time to complete this follow-up survey. According to SurveyMonkey it takes less than two minutes to complete it. We know that the jobs market is important not just to us (for obviousl reasons) but also to thousands and thousands of people across Scotland who work in professional or trades jobs in our industry.
Here's the link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/covidconstruction
The reason it's important is that towards the end of this year, as we enter the final quarter of 2020, we will have a much better idea of just how well construction is going to do in 2021, and a key part of the success of those firms who are going to be leading us out of the corronavirus crisis will be having the best possible people in every role available. While we happily admit our vested interest, we believe it's in everone's interest to find out what the rest of the industry (your - and our - friends and competitors (often both simultaneously!), think is going to happen. The results will, as previously, be made freely available to everyone.
If you've already taken part, many thanks, and if you haven't please do so.
