Our Sectors

Trades and Labour

Trades and Labour across the construction sector form one of the largest areas of workforce demands. Fast-paced and thriving, it consists of around 1.4 million workers in the UK and is the single largest area of the workforce in the sector. Large infrastructure projects – such as HS2, amongst others – are driving the growth of demand for Trades and Labour in some regions of the UK, and private housing will remain the healthiest area of growth and demand for skills for the long term.

Vital workers keeping construction moving

Citrus Training has educated thousands of workers in the Trade and Labour sector for over 20 years, leading by example as the need for recognised and transitional skills and qualifications for such heavily regulated environments increases. Tradespeople in this sector include:

  • Telehandler
