62% expressed their concern over additional pressure from the cost of rising materials
(PRWEB UK) 2 April 2013
It has been reported in HVP that the second B&ES Independent State of Trade survey, which looks at the period of July to December 2012 revealed that 51% of those who responded cited a further fall in tender prices as one of the biggest issues. 29% blamed a continuing decline in direct employment whilst an overwhelming 62% expressed their concern over additional pressure from the cost of rising materials. London, Yorkshire and North East were the areas which experienced the steepest decline.
However, the silver lining appears to be that the drop during the second half of 2012 was not as steep as that experienced during the first part of the year.
Providing highly trained London emergency plumbers, Emergency Plumber also offers efficient workers throughout the country. Regularly researching the latest industry updates and developments, the news was naturally of concern to the team. A representative shares their thoughts on the matter.
“Whilst it is disheartening to see a dip in figures, what we should remember is that the rate of this decline is slowing. During the current economic climate all business sectors are affected and hopefully the next set of results will have more positive findings.
“Whilst the engagement of apprentices and trainees were said to have fallen during this period, we have had some more encouraging news recently in the form of British Gas promising to create 1000 new jobs for the young and unemployed. Successful candidates will be installing energy efficient systems into UK households.”
The team at Emergency Plumber continue to research and respond to the latest industry news.
