Below-average occupational growth is expected in Alberta for 2016 to 2020. Job openings are a result of employment turnover and newly created positions.

Experienced residential construction site managers may advance to more senior management positions within the construction industry such as operations manager, construction manager, general manager or contractor. Certified Alberta residential construction site managers who have the supervisory or management skills required by industry may apply for an Achievement in Business Competencies Blue Seal by contacting Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training.
Residential construction site managers are part of the larger 2011 National Occupational Classification 0711: Construction managers. In Alberta, 75% of people employed in this classification work in the Construction industry.
The employment outlook in this occupation will be influenced by a wide variety of factors including:
- time of year (for seasonal jobs)
- trends and events affecting overall employment (especially in the industries listed above)
- location in Alberta
- employment turnover (work opportunities generated by people leaving existing positions)
- occupational growth (work opportunities resulting from the creation of new positions that never existed before)
- size of the occupation.
Over 15,600 Albertans are employed in the Construction managers ccupational group. This group is expected to have a below-average annual growth of 0.2% from 2016 to 2020. As a result, 31 new positions are forecast to be created each year, in addition to job openings created by employment turnover. Note: As residential construction site managers form only a part of this larger occupational group, only some of these newly created positions will be for residential construction site managers.
Employment turnover is expected to increase as members of the baby boom generation retire over the next few years.
