CIF Conference 2016

On Thursday the 6th of October our team of specialists will be attending the CIF Conference held in The Hogan Suite Croke Park Conference Centre Dublin. Here is what a few members of team had to say about the ever growing and changing industry and how the services provided by Servisource can benefit you.

Servisource Construction:

The Irish construction industry output is to be 42% higher in 2016 than in 2012, according to the Society of Chartered Surveyors. Construction skills are once again in demand as the supply of quantity surveyors, project managers and senior engineers tightens. There are a number of obstacles standing in the way of this and the most commonly mentioned trend for 2016 was the continued effects of the skilled worker shortage. A significant portion of employees who left the industry during the recession never returned, and companies are still struggling to find workers at all levels to properly staff their teams.

The overall value of construction projects commenced saw a significant increase in the first half of 2016, rising by €1.12 billion to €3.69 billion when compared to the same period in 2015 according to the Building Information Index. This figure represents a very strong increase of +44% in the value of actual construction activity for the first six months of 2016 when compared to the first half of 2015.

Compiled from real time planning and project information by Building Information Ireland, the Building Information Index is measured by examining in detail the two distinct phases of a construction project. The first phase relates to project Commencements, which are projects where construction activity has commenced on the specific site. The second phase, which is an excellent measurement in real time of the sentiment in the sector, relates to project Applications. Both phases are measured for the first half of 2016 and compared with the same period in 2015, for comparative purposes.

Hence there has never been a better time to work in the Construction sector in Ireland and we here at Servisource Recruitment have a number of highly skilled positions available including Project Managers, Site Engineers, Quantity’s Surveyors and Contracts Managers and trades related roles nationwide. We understand that it is crucial for our clients and our sector, that we attract the best talent to suit your business.
