Will Skills Shortage Deepen After Brexit?

Will Skills Shortage Deepen After Brexit?


Poles in the UK have shown a marked tendency to set up their own businesses, and the main UK sector that Polish-owned businesses specialise in is construction.

Over the years, Polish builders in Britain have established a desirable reputation for quality and value for money; solid workmanship, a timely delivery of projects and a ‘can-do’ attitude. Now, PBLINK, the premier networking organisation for Polish and diverse entrepreneurs in the UK, will be holding its first sector-based event, focused on construction.

Forum organiser and director of Polish Business Link Bart Kowalczyk explains:

“Its not a secret that the UK construction sector currently relies heavily on Polish builders to keep it going, and this is becoming especially so as the skills shortage worsens. It is becoming harder and harder for construction firms to find the skilled workers they require, so solutions are needed. Also, what impact will Brexit have on this… these are some of the topics which will be discussed at the first ever British-Polish Construction Forum.

“The Forum is aimed at anyone interested in this sector – architects and engineers, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, manufacturers and importers of building materials. This event will provide inspirational case studies and business insights into the construction industry. It will also offer an unrivalled opportunity for networking between British and Polish businesses in this sector.”

“If you are the owner of a company doing business in construction in the UK, you cannot afford to miss this one-day event; you’ll learn much and meet many interesting and potentially useful contacts,” adds Michael Dembinski ,Chief Adviser, British Polish Chamber of Commerce.
