A new Construction Job Shop is being launched to promote opportunities across the region and connect job seekers to vacancies for employment or work experience.

The South West is one of the best performing construction areas in the UK, with lots of new developments, including new housing projects, in the pipeline.

And new workers are needed across a range of managerial, professional, technical and skilled trades.

To help developers meet their skilled labour requirements, Building Greater Exeter is hosting the Construction Job Shop on Wednesday, 4 March, at the Civic Centre in Paris Street.

Job seekers will be able to drop in any time between 9.30am and 12noon.

After this date the Construction Job Shop will take place at the same time every Wednesday at the Civic Centre.

Cllr Bob Foale, Exeter City Council’s Lead Councillor for City Planning and Development, welcomed the new initiative. He said: “What better way to address the construction skills shortage than by setting up a Construction Job Shop to connect job seekers to vacancies locally – I’m delighted Exeter City Council can help facilitate it by utilising the Civic Centre, in the heart of the city centre.”
