Site Manager Struggle Could Stunt Industry Growth

As we’ve all seen in recent news articles the UK’s construction industry is starting to suffer due to a shortage of Site Managers.

The ‘Building for Growth’ report by Lloyds Banking Group, shows a third of construction companies are failing to find qualified candidates for Site Manger roles which is causing our construction sites problems.

With figures for the industry showing a 34% shortage for Site Managers and Electricians, with Project Managers following closely behind on 33%, and Quantity Surveyors and Architects facing a 31% shortage there has unavoidably been a negative effect on the construction industry output.

Ionic meet St Rocco’s

Today we got to meet the hardworking staff that help St Rocco’s provide such a fantastic service.

We presented St Rocco’s staff with a cheque for a grand total of £1428.80, money raised from your support of our Manchester 10k run in May.

St Rocco’s nurses were amazed at the amount we raised and explained that the majority of your donations will help pay for St Rocco’s Hospice at Home Service which aims to support people who wish to remain and spend their last days at home if that is their choice. This service is provided by a team of experienced healthcare assistants who give practical nursing care and psychological support to patients and their families.

We want to say a massive thank you to all of those who have contributed in support of St Rocco’s and Ionic.

2015 Marks a Change in Construction

After the Queen’s speech we reflect on the Conservative government’s investment in the housing market and the effect on apprentices.

George Osborne announced a new ‘Help To Buy’ ISA, where for every £200 a first-time buyer saves towards a home, the Government will give them a £50 top-up. Furthermore, the Government has set a substantial target of building 200,000 new starter homes by 2020 and plans to release public land for the construction of up to 150,000 new homes.
