KPMG continues to sponsor the Construction Youth Trust awards, which offers an opportunity for exceptional young professionals within the construction industry to be commended and celebrated for their achievements.
Despite only making up 9% of the construction industry workforce, women dominated the celebrations of the evening. Winners will each receive a unique package of support through the Trust and development opportunities through a one year mentoring programme to enable them to make an even greater impact in their future careers. KPMG are proud to sponsor the "Overall Winner category" and congratulate "Stacey Clifford, Kier" on her triumph in winning this award.
Construction Youth Trust Director, Christine Townley commented "I am particularly delighted to see so many women triumph tonight and it is really heartening to see that young women are seeing potential in construction as a career."
It has been a turbulent few years for the UK and global economies, while the path to recovery remains unclear. The UK construction sector has been hit hard, slipping back into recession for the third time in five years. In 2012 alone the industry contracted by nearly £5 billion* creating a significant drag on the economy as a whole.
But how have the UK’s major contractors actually fared under such significant pressure?
KPMG has analysed fourteen of the UK’s largest construction companies’ revenue and margin positions. How do you compare?

This will help shape the CBI’s dialogue with government and make the case for improvements to the UK’s energy, transport, waste, water and digital infrastructure.
