The UK is facing its biggest skills shortage for a generation. From Commercial Directors and Quantity Surveyors to Engineers, there are talent gaps across a range of professions.

The scarcity of skills in key sectors has severe repercussions, from projects having to be put on hold to soaring pay rates for some of those most in demand jobs.

We offer a customised market mapping service which enables organisations to utilise our knowledge of the built environment to improve their insight and awareness of particular skill sets within a specified location.

Personalised, relevant, market maps provide vital insight into active and passive candidate communities within specific scoped areas.

Our mapping service is conducted by our specialised research team, who have unrivalled insight into their chosen specialised sector, constantly analysing the job market, tracking vacancies, skill shortages and planned property and construction projects throughout London and the South East.

Outcomes include:

I have worked with Potensis over the past number of years during which I have found their approach to both permanent and temporary recruitment to be professional, accurate and refreshingly honest. I appreciated their attention to detail and market knowledge especially with the thoroughness of their vetting process.
