UK Scrambling for 250,000 Construction Workers by 2028

In order to fulfill demand, the UK will require an additional 250,000 construction workers by 2028.


The severity of the UK’s construction skills deficit is being addressed by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), which has released a new projection. The industry is projected to grow by 2.4% on average between now and 2028, according to CITB’s Construction Skills Network (CSN) 2024–2028 report. As construction employment increased to 2.75 million people in four years, it stated that it would require 251,000 additional workers.


The construction sector in the UK is grappling with significant challenges. It hires 200,000 workers annually but loses roughly 210,000 workers at the same time. According to the report, nearly a third (31%) of construction companies reported difficulties finding employees with the necessary training.


The UK construction industry will continue to thrive, but more workers with the necessary skills are needed, according to the chief executive of CITB. There has always been a need for labor, and the report highlights the ratio of people leaving the industry to those entering. It also highlights the opportunities employers have to meet this challenge by bringing in and training a diverse, competent, and skilled workforce that may satisfy both present and future demands.


The “people pipeline” is essential to the industry’s expansion, but productivity gains and technical advancements are also crucial. This is why they are investing more than £267 million to ensure the skills system is fit for purpose today and in the future.
