Placing displaced talent in Construction

This event has finished

In recent weeks we have seen very visible evidence of the challenges faced by refugees and other forcibly displaced people as a result of wars and other conflicts around the world. We have seen strong interest from industry to support displaced people by finding them roles working within the UK construction industry. Such equipment would also help alleviate existing skills shortages in the sector.

The Construction Leadership Council is arranging an online workshop on 12 October with an initial focus on highly skilled civil engineers and project managers who have had to leave conflicts in countries including Syria Lebanon and Afghanistan. We have experts in identifying displaced talent, and supporting their journey through the migration system who will speak at the workshop.
