Government has identified Infrastructure as one of the key drivers of economic development in the country. This has proven to be a major driving force in the growth of the construction industry. The creation of smart cities in India will create a huge demand for Work Supervisor in the construction sector. This will have a positive trickle-down effect where more job opportunities will emerge for Work Supervisors. Apart from the Indian market, there is massive demand for skilled plumbers in UAE. The boom in the construction industry in the Middle East has led to an increase in international job opportunities for Work Supervisors.
