The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (NASC) has announced a pioneering initiative designed to bridge the critical skills gap in the UK’s thriving scaffolding and access sector.

This innovative Talent Solution aims to connect young professionals with reputable employers, addressing the urgent need for skilled talent in this rapidly expanding industry.

With the demand for top-tier scaffolding services on the rise, thousands of scaffolding contracting businesses are struggling to recruit young talent to meet industry needs. Recognising this pressing issue, NASC has developed a comprehensive platform to streamline the recruitment process and promote the diverse opportunities within the sector.

The NASC Talent Solution provides a user-friendly interface for candidates to register and connect with quality employers actively seeking skilled and enthusiastic individuals. By leveraging strategic partnerships with leading job portals and utilising targeted social media and digital advertising campaigns, NASC ensures maximum visibility and reach for both candidates and employers.


Henry Annafi, NASC’s Training and Careers Manager, expressed his excitement about the initiative. “Our new Talent Solution represents a significant step forward in addressing the skills gap within the scaffolding and access sector. By providing a streamlined platform for talent acquisition and promotion, we aim to attract the brightest minds and nurture a new generation of skilled professionals,” Annafi said.

A standout feature of the NASC Talent Solution is the exclusive access granted to NASC members. These members can benefit from a comprehensive Talent Pack, which includes display materials and interactive equipment designed to showcase the exciting and diverse opportunities within the scaffolding and access sector. The Talent Pack aims to inspire and educate aspiring candidates about the rewarding career prospects available.

It’s worth noting that scaffolders and access operatives are highly trained professionals who often command salaries exceeding £50,000 per annum. With ample opportunities for career growth and advancement, the sector offers competitive remuneration packages and a supportive working environment, with many skilled individuals advancing into management and engineering design roles.

NASC’s Talent Solution is set to revolutionise the recruitment landscape within the scaffolding and access industry. By bridging the gap between talent supply and industry demand, the initiative fosters a culture of excellence and innovation.
