Opportunity knocks

When you start planning your stand for Civils 2002, remember to think about recruitment.

'Contractor and consultant exhibitors reported they recruited very successfully at the last event, ' says exhibition manager Sally Devine. 'This trend will be an integral part of the 2002 show. Visitors will expect to come and find recruitment and career development opportunities.'

All companies face major difficulties hiring new staff. Workload has increased dramatically at a time when the number of people coming into the industry is falling.

'Our clients tell us that they need to find new ways of meeting recruits - whether they are fresh from college or engineers in work looking for a new challenge, ' says NCE recruitment manager Deborah Button.

Civils 2002 will be an ideal opportunity for graduates and mid career professionals to talk directly to potential employers about the opportunities they have on offer, she believes, as well as find out how the company operates and the sort of work that it does.

Make sure you are ready to talk to them.
