The demand for construction workers in Yorkshire looks set to grow, as plans for several major new projects have been announced.
The number of jobs available in the region for site workers - particularly those in skill shortage trades, such as bricklaying and plastering - has risen steadily over the past year due to an increase in construction industry activity.
With a healthy pipeline of new infrastructure and construction projects established, demand for skilled workers is likely to continue to grow.
Developments confirmed in recent weeks include:
- £1.3 billion worth of investment in the region’s roads for improvements to the A1, M62, M1, A63, A180 and A628
- 375 houses in Edlington, near Doncaster
- A new 167-bedroom hotel in Hull
- A 250,000 sq ft industrial park at Lindley, Huddersfield
- A £20 million refurbishment of University of Leeds Students’ Union
- 101-home development in Headingley, Leeds
- Planning applications submitted during the same period include:
- A £480 million mixed use retail and office development in Sheffield
- A £13 million retirement village in Great Ayton
- 500-home development in Seacroft, Leeds
- A new bridge and redevelopment of Princes Dock and Humber Dock, Hull
- A combined refurbishment and new-build project at University of Sheffield’s Faculty of Engineering
- Renovation of Hull New Theatre
- A 22-home housing estate in Richmond
