'Record rise’ in construction job vacancies

'Record rise’ in construction job vacancies

According to figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the number of job vacancies available in the construction sector rose to 19,000 in the three months to February, an increase of 6,000 - or 46% - in year-on-year terms.

However, despite these positive vacancy figures, the ONS has said that the industry is nowhere near its pre-recession levels just yet, with bad weather in January and February meaning that the sector grew by just 0.3% at the beginning of the year.
