Building and construction employment is projected to expand by around 10% over the next five years, thanks to strong projected growth in non-residential construction and the government’s continued investment in infrastructure.
However, the industry is facing a labour crisis, with talent and skill shortages persistently plaguing the sector.
Forecasts suggest that an additional 300,000 construction workers will be required across Australia by 2024. That means, over the next few years, the ability to secure top talent will be critical to business success.
Trojan Recruitment Group has a specialised construction team who work with leading construction organisations. Our team also bring years of hands-on construction industry experience, which means we understand project requirements and the skill set necessary to excel in each role.
Competition is fierce, project budgets are tight and rigorously enforced, and these days you are expected to do more with less. That means highly skilled, motivated staff can be the difference between a well-managed, profitable project and one beset with delays and cost blowouts.
You need a partner who can work closely with you to provide the right candidates with the right mix of skills. And Trojan are the perfect people for the job. Our decades of experience and strong industry network mean we can connect businesses like you with top talent.
