3 ways in which you can keep up to date with news in the Irish construction industry.

Here at Building Staff Solutions (BSS), we understand that right now the world is a completely different place than what it was 6 months ago. The COVID-19 pandemic not only halted the construction industry from March to the beginning of May, but it has meant that 71% of construction professionals are worried about the impact of the pandemic. BSS really wants to help our candidates get back to work. Our team of recruitment agents are here to help you maximise your potential, and most importantly ensure that they will be with you every step of the way.

So, here’s 3 ways in which you can keep up to date with what’s going on in the construction industry and how we can help you to achieve your goals.

  1. Subscribe to the Building Ireland Magazine – At €35 a year for 10 magazines (usual RRP is €3.95 per issue), the Building Ireland Magazine is a fantastic resource in seeing what is going on within the building and construction industry. With news about upcoming projects within the industry, it gives you a good overview of current trends within the industry, as well as industry focused overviews about companies that one day, you could be an employee of. Helping to celebrate the achievements of the industry, it also gives you an overview of areas of the building industry such as architecture, conservation work and new innovations within the industry. 
  2. Set up a Google Alert – A nice and simple way to make sure you are keeping up to date with news articles about the construction industry in Ireland is by setting up a ‘Google Alert’. Here, you can target a key phrase such as ‘Construction Ireland’ and you will get emails relaying you news stories about that key phrase. This will ensure that you are always in the know about this industry! To learn how to do this, go to https://www.google.ie/alerts .
  3. Keep an eye on the BSS website and social media – At BSS, we want you to get work! Simple enough huh?! We will be publishing more articles on our blog about upcoming success stories within the construction industry, interviews with some of our recruitment agents asking them how to best secure your next job, as well as sharing our job adverts so that you can find your next exciting role in the construction industry. Furthermore, we’re currently developing a BSS app, meaning that soon you will be able to manage all of your job applications from your smart phone.

At BSS, we want to assure you that despite the pandemic, we are still working for you. Any enquiries, big or small, shoot them our way at info@buildstaff.ie
