we have many pieces of advice for first time construction workers

Here at FBR, we have many pieces of advice for first time construction workers that we want to share. The construction industry is one of the oldest industries around. Since the beginning of time, there has always been a need for construction workers. While the construction landscape may look different it is still vital and important as ever to our society. 

For first time construction workers it can be daunting to begin working in this ever changing industry. Here at FBR, we have some important advice to pass on to those who are just starting out in their construction careers. 

Say yes to every opportunity given 

It is important to learn as much as possible in your first role. This is why any opportunity you are given in your first construction job role is key. Say yes and enjoy the new opportunities and experiences you are given

Qualifications and training days 

When working in any industry it is important to always consider your own personal qualifications and certifications. Asking for training opportunities and qualifications not only helps put you on the right track for your desired career, but it also shows your willingness to learn new skills. This is great for employers as they want their employees to be eager to learn and use those skills to their advantage within the business. Qualifications and training opportunities benefit you as well as your employer. 

Find a mentor 

Working in construction is hard work. That is why finding a mentor you can learn from is beneficial. When you find someone you connect with you can learn from their own skills and experiences as well as ask them any questions you may have. A mentor will be invaluable as you grow within your construction role.

Do your research 

There are many roles within the construction industry. It is important to understand which roles are available to you and where you would like to be working within the next five years. Having an understanding of the industry and what roles you can do as well as where you want your career to go will help you in the long run. Do your research and know what roles and responsibilities are required for each position you are interested in. 

Stay hydrated 

This may seem like a no-brainer, but it is so important to remember that construction work is physically demanding. That means you need to make sure you look after your body and stay hydrated and make sure you eat! Construction sites will have facilities available to you but being prepared is always the best option. 

Safety is key

Construction sites are busy places. Whether you are working on a residential project or other types of construction work, there will always be machinery and equipment around. Accidents can happen which is why you need to make sure to wear all necessary PPE and follow the site safety rules set out at the beginning of the project. 

If you have any concerns regarding site safety, report these to the site supervisor or manager to have them resolved. 

Ultimately the construction industry is a fast paced environment with masses of opportunities to grow and learn. Hard work is always rewarded, as well as following best practices and safety procedures.

different types of construction jobs

The construction industry is huge and contains many different types of jobs. As recruiters in the construction industry, we often find ourselves being asked by candidates “What construction jobs are there?” 

The interesting answer to this question is simple; all types of construction jobs. A construction company requires many different types of skills and people to keep the company running smoothly. 

Construction jobs aren’t just limited to labourers and on-site construction workers. There are many other different types of construction roles that need to be filled. Let’s look at the different types of construction jobs that are available for those who are interested in working in construction. 

Office based construction jobs

While the most common jobs relating to construction are onsite roles, there are also office based roles directly related to construction work. For the sake of simplicity, we will not cover more standard roles such as HR and accounts; while a construction company may require those roles, they aren’t directly involved in construction work. 

CAD designer 

CAD designers or often referred to as CAD draughtsman are responsible for creating the outlines and blueprints of a project. They will be required to go onsite to collect the relevant data and information they need to complete their drawings and outlines. However, once the information is collected they will need access to specific software to create the plans. 

Contracts manager

Contract managers are required to organise and prepare contracts for work to be carried out. This can be from organising the contract for additional labour, hiring required equipment, and more. They will ensure that each contract is carried out as smoothly as possible as well as chase up any enquiries relating to a project. They will work closely with the project manager and help with any additional tasks the project manager needs. 

On site construction jobs

On site construction jobs are probably the most known construction roles. These job roles are essential to the work being carried out and require training as well as additional health and safety qualifications. 


Labourers are an essential role for all construction companies. Without labourers, construction work wouldn’t be carried out on many projects. From building foundations to organising the materials on site, no day is identical. Labourers are integral to construction work.

Site managers 

Site managers are responsible for ensuring that everything runs smoothly on-site. From organising the construction crew to consulting with the project manager and contracts manager. Site managers keep the construction site organised and working efficiently. 

Hybrid construction job roles

Beyond on-site construction roles and office based construction roles, there are some roles in construction which will be a mix of the two. This means you will spend time on site as well as off site.

Project managers 

Project managers are the definition of hybrid construction roles. Their time is split between being on-site managing the project overall and meeting with the site manager and clients prospectively. 

They also spend part of their time in meetings and in the office discussing and managing further aspects of the project from finances to contracts and more. Project managers ensure that construction projects are run efficiently and smoothly from start to finish at the top level down. 

Understanding each role within the construction industry can help you decide which career path to take. There are a wide range of roles in the construction industry and this blog only covers the most well-known jobs. For more information on jobs within the construction industry view our jobs board.

Contact the team at FBR if you are looking for a new role in the construction industry. 

Construction qualifications can be confusing for many people. There are many roles within construction and understanding what qualifications you need can seem complex

Construction qualifications can be confusing for many people. There are many roles within construction and understanding what qualifications you need can seem complex. This can be due to the fact that some roles may not require a specific qualification related to that field of construction work and only a more general construction degree. 

The construction industry is responsible for the way our society works, the residential areas we have, roads and highways, as well as other factors in our lives. The UK wouldn’t be as it is without vital construction workers. It is for this reason alone that having the right qualifications for your role is essential to providing safe working conditions and results. 

What construction qualifications are there 

Depending on the job you are looking for there are different types of qualifications that you may need. Each section of construction has its own qualification, such as;

  • Carpentry
  • Bricklaying
  • Plastering 
  • Property maintenance 
  • Plant operations 
  • Roofing 
  • Civil engineering
  • Canals and waterways (Heritage)

Your way into each of these industries in construction can vary. For many, the option to attend college is the first choice. There are a variety of colleges that offer qualifications in any of the above specialities in construction.

Other alternatives are apprenticeship programs which are offered by various awarding bodies. Your employer or potential employer will be able to talk you through your choice of apprenticeship, as well as the position which works for the company.

Qualification providers such as City and Guilds, and CIBT, among others are common providers within the industry.

What additional qualifications are useful in the construction industry

Bolstering up your qualifications and certificates is always a bonus for any construction worker. Additional qualifications can be extremely beneficial such as;

  • Health and safety certificates
  • First aid certificates
  • CSCS cards 
  • Forklift truck licences 

These additional qualifications are a bonus, unless your role specifies the need for these certifications. 

What job roles require specific qualifications

While there are many qualifications that construction workers can obtain for their specific discipline. Not all construction roles require specific qualifications, although they are beneficial to your career progression. 

These are a few of the construction jobs which require specific qualifications in order to work within the role:

  • Arbitrator
  • Building surveys
  • Site engineer 
  • Building engineer
  • Quantity surveyors
  • Estimator 
  • Construction manager 

There are many different routes into construction work, depending on the role you are looking at your way into that position may be different. Understanding the essential qualifications you need in order to obtain that job role is key. 

Adding additional qualifications to help support your career progression is always going to be beneficial. Many construction companies encourage additional training as it offers great benefits to the company and industry as a whole. 

Working with a recruitment agency that understands the construction industry is essential. Our recruitment agents have vast experience within the industry and will be able to help you understand the qualifications you need for your dream role.

The ultimate goal of a recruitment agency is to match the right talent with the right job

How do recruitment agencies work? A guide to the different ways recruitment agencies work, including how to match the right candidate to the right job role, fees, etc.

Recruitment agencies work in various different ways. The ultimate goal of a recruitment agency is to match the right talent with the right job role and company. Call us corporate matchmakers if you will. 

The way that recruitment agencies make their money can be different, some recruiters work on a flat fee if the candidate they sourced was selected for a role. Other recruiters take a percentage pay based on the annual salary for the role. Recruitment agencies are running a business after all, however, there are good recruitment agencies and less than ideal ones. 

It is important to speak to the recruitment agency you are looking to work with, as a candidate as well as a business. If they are not transparent in how they make money or withhold information from you; that’s a huge red flag and you should consider your options.

Ultimately finding the right recruitment agent is key to ensuring that the right talent is in the right roles. Recruiting is expensive, even if you as a business decide to do it in house. That is why working with a recruitment agency can be beneficial as we work to align your needs as a business with the best talent on the market. 

Now we understand how the basics of a recruitment agency works, what does a recruitment agency do to make this happen?

Sourcing Candidates

One of the tasks that recruitment agencies need to do is source candidates. This can be done by outreaching online to those who have set public profiles as interested/open to work. 

Additionally, we have secure databases that we are able to use to help us match current job offerings with potential candidates. This allows us to match up both the candidate’s interests and requirements with the company looking to recruit.

Advertising Job Roles

Another thing recruitment agencies do is advertise roles they are recruiting for. Recruiting new talent is time consuming and takes a lot of effort for companies. Using a recruitment agent to advertise and pre-vet candidates helps those companies as well as proves beneficial for the candidates themselves. 

Supporting both Companies and Candidates

Recruitment agencies also work to support both companies looking to recruit as well as candidates. 

It is important for us as a recruitment company to align the company we are recruiting for with the right candidates and talent. We are there to answer any questions and support candidates with interview preparation and more. 

Our team are also experts in European recruitment and are able to assist with information relating to work permits and additional qualifications.

How to Work with Us as a Candidate

There are two ways in which you as a candidate can work with us. The first way is to view our jobs board and apply for any jobs relevant to your experience and skills. This is a great way if you are actively looking for new opportunities. 

The second way you can work with us is to contact us and submit your information and be included in our database. This way our recruiters will be able to access your information should an opportunity arise that you are suited for. 

Sourcing a Recruitment Agency as a Business

If you are a business looking to work with a recruitment agency there are some things you should consider. 

The first consideration is whether your recruitment agent is an expert in your industry. Not every recruitment agency understands the nuances of specific industries and this can make it difficult to ensure the right candidate is selected. At FBR, we are experienced in recruiting for construction roles and the construction industry as a whole. We understand the importance of specific qualifications such as CSCS and NEBOSH. 

Another important consideration is how they select candidates. Some recruitment agents select candidates by waiting for a submission. This can take time and if your recruiter isn’t working hard to find the right talent, are they the best recruiter for you? 

Ultimately working with a recruitment agency should be easy and stress free for both parties. At FBR, we work with both candidates and companies to ensure that the selection process is easy and accessible. We focus on the right candidates and talent for the right company.

No matter what age you are there may be times when you wish to switch careers

No matter what age you are there may be times when you wish to switch careers. Many recruiters will tell you that after certain ages this is no longer a possibility. However, we think differently. If you are looking to swap careers there is a way around it which makes it easier to land those interviews. 

Transferable skills are the skills that overlap in many different job roles and industries. Many companies also prefer candidates who have a wide range of skills that can be transferred to their new positions.

Having experience in other industries and job roles is extremely beneficial. You as a potential candidate have knowledge of various industries and how things are done. This brings a whole new perspective to the construction industry and can help construction businesses also improve their service offerings and processes. 

So we all understand the benefits of transferable skills and why a career switch can be done at any age; let’s look at the skills that are highly coveted and transferable when looking for a role in construction.

Communication skills

Working in construction requires high levels of communication skills. Whether you are communicating with fellow team members on how a task is going to be completed; or you are updating a client on the status of a project. 

In all roles, communication skills are essential, if you can highlight the ways you have improved and used communication skills in previous projects and roles on your CV then do it.

Project management skills

When looking at swapping careers in the construction industry look at any projects you have been a part of. It’s no surprise that construction companies are heavily project based and as such, showing that you have experience managing projects and executing them according to the brief is extremely beneficial. 

Highlight the intricacies of the project that you were a part of and make sure to leave no detail out. Projects come in all shapes and sizes and for construction projects, this is no different. 

People skills

Another important transferable skill for the construction industry is people skills. No matter your role, you will be working with people across the board from different backgrounds. Whether that is on the ground as a labourer executing the work, or as a project manager delegating and managing key aspects of the project.

Determination and mental strength

Working in construction means you will potentially be exposed to the wide range of elements the UK has to offer. While if weather makes it unsafe to carry out work you won’t be expected to soldier on. However, come wind, rain, or shine, that construction project has to be completed. 

Construction workers need to be determined to carry on working safely no matter the conditions. As well as the mental strength required to keep going to ensure a project is completed on time. If you have situations where you can provide evidence of these combined skills it can go a long way.

When looking to change careers there are many things you can do to help move the process along. Work with a dedicated team who specialises in the construction industry to help guide you to the best role suitable for you.

Our team at FBR are experienced in working with construction companies and understands the requirements for each industry role. Our recruiters are on hand to help you find your dream job and help position you in front of the best companies to provide just that. Contact us today. 

How do you think AI will be integrated with blue collar jobs?

How do you think AI will be integrated with blue collar jobs?
Artificial intelligence is making waves across all industries. Understanding how artificial intelligence will affect your blue-collar job is essential. But it’s not the robot uprising many will have you believe. Artificial intelligence can actually make your blue-collar jobs easier and better for your working life.

As the world of construction is constantly evolving, so will technology. Embracing the advancements can prove extremely beneficial for many reasons. Here at FBR, we understand how these advancements can impact jobs and the construction industry. So let’s look into this topic and see how it can affect blue-collar jobs in construction.

What is a blue-collar job?

A blue-collar job is a manual labour position in industry or manufacturing. It typically requires little to no formal education and training. However, there are now many recognised qualifications and safety courses that are required by many employers.

The term “blue collar” was first used in reference to workers in the early 20th century. At that time, many manual jobs were performed by workers who wore blue denim or chambray shirts. Nowadays, blue-collar jobs are still mostly in the manufacturing and industrial sectors. But the term has also come to encompass a wide range of other types of work, including:

  • Construction
  • Transportation
  • Warehousing
  • Agriculture
  • Mining

Blue-collar jobs are typically defined as manual labour positions. However, they are still extremely important roles within the wider community.

How do you get a blue-collar job?

There are many ways to get a blue-collar job. You can apply directly to companies that hire for these positions, look for job postings online, or go through a staffing agency that connects workers with manufacturers and other industrial businesses.

At FBR, we specialise in finding the right job for the right person, our experience in recruiting for the construction industry puts us at an advantage. We understand the intricacies that revolve around the construction industry and so are perfectly positioned to help you find the right role.

How is artificial intelligence being integrated with blue-collar jobs?

AI is changing the landscape of blue-collar work. Machines are becoming increasingly capable of performing the tasks that have traditionally been done by human workers. This has the potential to increase efficiency and productivity in the workplace while reducing the need for human labour.

Will AI take my job?

It’s a common concern when the talk of Artificial intelligence becomes more common in the workplace. It’s unlikely that AI will completely replace human workers in the near future. Thinking back to the days before calculators, we used to work out figures with a pen and paper. Now we have a calculator to do it for us. Something that was part of our every day was replaced by technology. However, it is likely that AI will change the nature of blue-collar work. Machines will increasingly be used to perform tasks that are currently done by human workers. This could lead to a reduction in the number of jobs available for human workers in those roles. However, this doesn’t mean all is lost. It simply means your work will evolve and move with the technology that is being introduced.

FBR is an extremely experienced recruitment agency based in Hampshire. Our team has vast amounts of experience recruiting for the construction industry. Our focus on finding the right person for the right role is essential for a fast-paced and evolving industry such as construction. Our dedicated EU recruitment specialists can assist you through the whole recruitment process. Contact us now to find the right role and talent.

building a career in construction

As each industry evolves with society and technology, one common theme that is asked of us as recruiters is whether or not construction is a good career path. This question expands across all industries, but since we are heavily focused on construction recruitment let’s look at this in more detail.

Construction as an industry is one that will never cease to exist. In some shape or format, there will always be a need and demand for skilled construction workers. The construction industry is what enables our society to travel through countries as we do, as well as have the homes and infrastructure that we have. 

Construction as an industry is essential. However, that does not mean it is right for you. Consider all that is involved in construction and decide whether or not construction is a good career path for you. 

The pros and cons of working in construction

Each industry, each role, has its own good things and bad things. It all depends on what you are looking for and what you are happy to do in order to work within a role you enjoy. 

Construction career paths are not immune to this either. Each person’s preference ultimately drives whether or not they enjoy an aspect of their role. Some prefer to work outdoors, while others prefer to do a desk job. 

The construction industry has a vast number of jobs and each is different. Read in more detail about the pros and cons of construction, but take it with a grain of salt. What you enjoy and like will ultimately be different to someone else. 

Job opportunities in construction 

There are a wide variety of job opportunities in the construction industry. The first thing to consider is which avenue you want to work in. 

There are various entry level positions available within the construction industry. Such as: 

  • Labourers 
  • Ground workers 
  • Finishing floormen

Opportunities are always available within the construction industry due to the continued demand and development of key parts of society. Working with a recruitment agent will open you up to all the possible job opportunities available within the industry. 

How to build a career in construction

The way one person builds a career in construction will vary depending on their age, skills, qualifications and experience. For some, they began working in construction from an early age and continued to expand based on the opportunities provided to them.

Others decided on a more direct career path through specific qualifications gained at college and university. Another way into construction work is by working with an apprenticeship scheme. This will provide you with the ability to learn on the job and gain the experience required to continue your career.

There is no right or wrong way into building a career in construction. The important thing to do is research the part of the industry you wish to work in and tailor your opportunities around that. 

Continue working on key skills to help you grow within the industry and develop your career. You can do this by going on all relevant training courses, and asking if there are any other opportunities available for you to expand your knowledge. 

Employers are keen to help people develop their skills as it ultimately benefits the business in the long run.

Here at FBR, our construction recruitment specialists are able to help you find the role that is right for you. Helping you check your qualifications, experience and ultimately guide you into the right career path. Contact our team today or view our jobs board for current vacancies.

How can going green create more construction jobs?

How can going green create more construction jobs?

With a focus on businesses improving their carbon footprint and the effect they have on the environment, it is no wonder that construction companies are also looking at ways to go green. Companies that invest in environmentally friendly processes not only reduce their environmental impact but also improve employee satisfaction.

Why are we at FBR recruitment talking about construction companies going green you may ask? It is important to us as a recruitment agency to ensure that our clients and potential clients position themselves in the best way possible. This means looking at what will help them grow and be able to claim that all important star talent.

Why construction companies should switch to greener materials

One of the key components of creating an environment-friendly process is to replace hazardous materials with renewable and recyclable alternatives like wood or bamboo products.

By doing this, construction companies can ensure that they are not introducing new pollutants into the environment. Additionally, these materials can often be cheaper than their traditional counterparts and require less energy to produce. This cost-saving measure can help businesses allocate funds to other green initiatives such as solar or wind power.

Creation of environmentally friendly products

With construction companies making the change to greener resources and materials they are adding to the demand which in turn creates more job opportunities for other businesses. As well as specialised construction workers who understand the material and how to install it.

The use of renewable building materials also has the potential to create more jobs in the construction industry. By switching from using traditional materials to using more eco-friendly ones, construction companies can create jobs for woodworkers and other craftspeople who can help produce these materials. This could provide a much-needed boost to the economy while also helping to reduce environmental impact.

How environmentally friendly processes improve work satisfaction

Finally, improving environmental processes can have positive impacts on employee morale. By demonstrating that they are taking steps to be more sustainable, companies can show their workers that they care about the environment and are committed to leaving a positive legacy.

This can help improve job satisfaction, as employees know that they are working for an organisation that is making an effort to reduce its environmental impact. This is becoming a key point among younger generations when they are looking for jobs. The environment and how we work to protect it are important to young workers and so they want to be part of the change to improve.

Ensuring you capture key talent is important to building your business. Having the right people on the job who are able to help your business grow and flourish will ultimately help create more construction jobs as your business demand increases.

Creating environmentally friendly processes in construction not only helps reduce environmental damage but also has positive impacts on the economy and job satisfaction. Investing in green initiatives can help businesses save money, create new jobs, and provide their employees with a better work environment. By taking steps towards becoming more sustainable, construction companies can ensure that they are leaving a positive legacy for future generations.

Here at FBR recruitment, we work with businesses across the construction industry to find star talent. Our team of expert recruiters is skilled at finding the right people for the right job. With the construction industry ever evolving it is essential for businesses to have the right recruitment agency working with them. Contact our team today to help you find the right employee.
