Built Environment Recruitment Fair launches to help tackle unemployment
A new virtual event has been launched that will look to tackle unemployment – as the number of
people becoming redundant and seeking new opportunities begins the spike.
The Built Environment Recruitment Fair will be taking place on the 6th of November- and
it’s free to attend for anyone seeking or providing employment, education or employment
support within the built environment. The event is purely without recruitment fees or recruiters –
cutting out the middle-people and connecting professionals and employers directly.
The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has caused an upsurge in unemployment and has acutely
affected many professionals in the built environment sector. The pause in recruitment that many
firms embarked on in response to pandemic-related uncertainty or financial strain has also acted
as a barrier to employment. With the looming suspension of the furlough scheme, this may surge
again. But there are also firms who’ve found opportunities within the pandemic and are growing –
and this event will look to promote and highlight some of those positions.
The event will offer support from experts in CV writing, social media experts and best practice
with interviews. We will provide support for professionals to find out what programs they will be
eligible for. Apprenticeship schemes will be highlighted, as well as grant schemes and other
support available.
Skills in the construction sector have long been a focus of industry attention due to the
widespread perception of a growing “Skills gap”. In addition many firms within the built
environment are embracing new technology and the pandemic has only accelerated that
adoption in many ways – leading to the need for widespread upskilling, which is also a core
The event has also secured a diversity of employers and education providers, from major
Universities, developers, contractors and governmental organisations along with a range of other
firms throughout property, construction and real estate. Some of those who’ve already confirmed
