What is a lateral entrant?

A lateral entrant is someone who makes the transition to another position. This position usually falls within a field in which he/she has no experience or completed training (yet), but would like to learn and practice this trade. Lateral entrants are in all sectors. We target lateral entrants who want to work in construction or engineering.

Why Jobxion is open to lateral entrants.

Simply for the fact that there is a gigantic labor shortage in many sectors. The ambition for the construction industry, for example, is to build an additional one million homes by 2030. Homes and buildings must also be made more sustainable due to the energy transition, so additional construction and engineering professionals are in high demand.

In addition, we at Jobxion love our job. Our years of experience in the construction industry have given us an unparalleled enthusiasm for construction. This enthusiasm and our professional knowledge combined, make us want to enthuse others about the beautiful world of construction as well. Out of nothing our craftsmen make something.
