The construction industry is still on the lookout for top finance
professionals, despite the perilous state of funding for building projects,
according to executive recruiters Badenoch & Clark.

Writing in our Insider section this week, B&C associate director Dave
Fleming said that large public/private infrastructure projects such as the
Olympics, plus continuing work in Dubai, means there is a demand for senior
accounting professionals to provide corporate governance and project management
skills to the industry.

‘There is a palpable sense of competition within the industry and employers
are desperate to snap up the right people,’ said Fleming.

Recent surveys found that the construction industry had slumped at its
fastest pace for more than a decade. However, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has
said he expected the industry to bounce back quicker than in other countries
because of high demand for affordable housing.
