A SURVEY by CITB-ConstructionSkills shows that the Leeds construction industry’s future employees are ambitious.
The study, on the organisation’s youth website bconstructive, found that many young people wanted to work in construction so they could be their own boss.
Other reasons were the opportunity to become a master craftsman and the variety of work on offer but few put financial reward as a major factor.
Russell Buckley, regional delivery manager, said: “It’s clear from the survey that young people in Leeds interested in construction are driven, ambitious and ready for tough challenges. This is exactly what construction needs – quality candidates who are keen to raise the bar and meet the future needs of an ever changing industry.”
