More than 9,200 additional construction workers will be needed in the North East of England by 2026 to meet growing demand in the industry, according to the latest Construction Skills Network report.

The largest increases in annual demand in the North East of England are expected to be for occupations including wood trades and interior fit out (370 per year) and plant operatives (310 per year). This comes as private housing, non-housing maintenance and repair, commercial and infrastructure sectors are set to see the fastest rates of growth in the region.
