Competing For Skills – Preparing For The Upturn

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

This is a presentation to the NHF’s July 2009 Development & Regeneration Conference. The brief was to consider how changes in the shape of HA affordable housing programmes will affect demand for Development / Regeneration staff over the next 5 years. Our prediction was that Government subsidy would fall sharply but we would still be expected to maintain output, competition for Development staff would pick up after the shakeout of 2008 and that the sector – having become more risk averse through a diet of Section 106 Agreements – would demand higher skill levels from its Development team members.
