According to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), the contracting industry is set up for an increase of sustained demand with their data indicating that there may be candidate shortages in a number of sectors, as well as regions.

In particular demand are Engineering and Construction contactors, as well as a promising outlook for Finance and IT sectors in London. This may be due to rising confidence from the economy, with companies looking to support growth by working with contractors.

The REC’s JobsOutlook for October 2015 states that 38 per cent of clients plan to increase their contractor headcounts, “The demand for skilled people is especially acute in construction and engineering as a result of newly announced house building and infrastructure projects” says Chief Executive, Kevin Green.

Construction and Engineering Contractors are said to be in higher demand as 11 per cent of respondents are expecting a short fall of candidates and 16 per cent are expecting a skills shortage in the engineering sector.

“Employers are finding it extremely difficult to fill vacancies and need to find creative solutions to overcome staffing challenges” Green adds. “In areas where permanent roles are particularly hard to fill, employers are turning to temporary workers in order to access key strategic skills”.

Contractors are supplying industry specific skills and short term access to fill a necessary gap in the construction and engineering sectors, which was highlighted with 79 per cent of clients saying this was an important factor in their decision making process.
