Worldwide, capital project and infrastructure spending is expected to total more than $9 trillion by 2025 with some forecasters quoting a staggering $15 trillion."

Emerging economies are beginning to outpace first world countries and are now looking to attract talent by migrating existing skilled workforces with attractive packages. However, in many developed regions, the levels of spend and investment are also at pre-2008 levels, with engineering and construction markets openly stating the inflation of wages to retain talent and the current widening skills gap becoming a major challenge.

As construction projects become more complex, project owners develop greater dependence upon attracting a qualified and capable workforce. It has been widely publicised that there is an evident skills gap in the built environment sector as owners and contractors find it challenging to draw in the right talent. Those with specialist, in-depth knowledge form a very small talent pool – it’s the pool we draw from exclusively for our clients. Our dedicated consultants cast the net wide to find the right people, taking a proactive approach to headhunting.


With the global financial crisis now in the distant past, the sector has returned to economic normalcy. Emerging countries with rising populations, new technologies, increasing economic growth and fast urbanisation continue to accelerate construction growth. Infrastructure incentives and favourable credit conditions have greatly improved, while funding has remained high to initiate more projects within the sector.
