Talentview Construction launches to attract apprentices
TVC is the new Government-backed and Construction Industry Training Board industry levy-funded scheme to help young people find their first jobs, apprenticeships and traineeships in construction and the built environment.
The early careers initiative works closely with colleges and universities, construction employers and industry groups. Entirely free to use, the scheme has also received support from the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) and the Association of Colleges (AOC).
TRA members will already be very well aware of the current difficulties in filling job vacancies in the sector. It is estimated that the construction industry as a whole needs to recruit more than 217,000 new workers between now and 2025 to support its current activity, including the development of new careers in digitalisation and sustainability.
TVC makes it easier for those searching for a career in construction to join and play their part in an industry at the heart of the UK’s economic recovery. Construction already employs about three million people, providing multiple career paths.
Employers can promote their first job vacancies, search for local candidates and make contact with local education providers. Job hunters can find their first role in the construction industry, research great employers and build their profiles so that local employers can see what they have to offer.
Nick Boulton said: “Several TRA members are successfully using the Government’s Kickstart scheme which helps employers to access funding for new jobs. TRA members are encouraged to make use of these initiatives to help them address recruitment problems.”
