A fast-expanding local web publishing company in March is to double its workforce by recruiting another 15 staff.
The Construction Index was only established five years ago, but has become the most popular website for the UK construction industry. The March-based web service provides news, data, jobs and product information, and so far has attracted around 4 million visitors and delivered more than 24 million pages of information.
I am particularly keen to encourage the growth of ambitious small and medium sized enterprises such as this. New media companies like The Construction Index can play a crucial role in regenerating the Fens.
Positions which The Construction Index is currently recruiting for include: graphic designers; web developers; coders; JNR programmers; and sales executives. It is great to see that even at a time of economic challenges there are still opportunities for local people who want join this fast moving industry.
I am also pleased to see that the company is also giving back to the local community. Its employees will be providing careers advice to Neale Wade School, Sir Harry Smith Community College and the College of West Anglia. This is exactly the kind of support we need to raise aspiration in local schools to ensure that pupils go on to the best universities and go on to successfull careers, especially in the technology sector.
“Anyone joining the business can rest assured there will be plenty to keep them busy!” said Paul Buist the business owner.
