Peace Recruitment Group has revealed that its Trades and Labour Department has doubled in size over the last six months. Tamara Jaberu, a director at Peace, believes this further evidence that the UK construction sector is flourishing despite all the recent negative headlines. Tamara added: “The major challenge we are facing in Trades and Labour is a shortage of candidates. Firms can still find the right people but competition is fierce. Employers need to be aware that it may take more time to find the right candidate, they need to be flexible in what they are looking for, and they need to put together as attractive a package as possible.”
