GSCE results day 2019: Esther McVey urges students to become bricklayers in surprise move

According to The Sun, her remarks follow a report by the Federation of Master Builders which highlighted the highest-paid bricklayers in London earned £90,000 a year.

The latest figures show the average salary for brick layers to have just passed the £42,000 mark – far exceeding the national average salary of around £29,000.

The salary puts them on the same level with a recent university graduate pharmacist, but more than a newly qualified dentist and architect.

With an increased demand for skilled workers, industry insiders have predicted that pupils receiving their GCSEs will be scouted out by construction firms.
