EP 98

Why are we struggling so much with labour in UK construction? (EP 98)



This week, Paul is joined by David Nash, the Director of Strategy and Policy at The ECITB, a non-departmental public body supporting training and skills development across the engineering construction industry in England, Scotland and Wales.

At the show’s beginning, Paul shares a story about a client struggling to resource a QS. Perhaps this is something your business is experiencing right now?

If so, you are not alone. David is a highly knowledgeable individual on labour policy today, and he shares his insights on how the construction labour market can be reshaped. The conversation covers 3d printing, robotics and the future construction workforce, with David demonstrating exactly why the sector needs an institution like and a levy from the ECITB.
