“The freelance engineering section is experiencing an encouraging boom at the minute, with levels of temporary workers returning to pre-recessionary levels we haven’t seen since 2008.
Due to the recession, there’s now a severe skills shortage in Scotland, and the current demand for site engineers for all sectors of construction is difficult to meet.
However, we have a strong database of site engineers – it’s one of our largest freelance divisions. So we’re well equipped to deal with the high demand. We also offer alternative solutions by sourcing part-time site engineers who can work in conjunction with their own part-time work. Or we can supply experienced engineers over the course of a few weekends. Our international consultant can also source European candidates with transferable skills, using the same background checks and vetting we carry out on locally based candidates.
We anticipate the demand to continue over the next 3 – 6 months, given the usual need for holiday cover and new project starts. For a better chance of success, it’s best to plan ahead as much as possible if you’re likely to need a freelance site engineer.”
