200 New Jobs Created In The Midlands

BuilderUp to 200 new construction based jobs could be created in the Midlands thanks to plans by Birmingham business Willmott Dixon.

The jobs will range from building managers, plasterers, joiners, carpenters, estimators, purchasers, quantity surveyors and planners.

As well as the creation of the new jobs as part of their 2014 growth plan, the company who have offices in Coleshill, Kingstanding and Kings Heath is also expanding its house building operations in the Midlands under a new managing director, Simon Leadbeater.

Willmott Dixon who already employs 1,000 people, is mid-way through a series of care home schemes for Housing 21 in Warwickshire and Chevin Housing Association in Derbyshire and other projects throughout the region.

Mr Leadbeater, said: “Much of our work is for the retirement sector and that’s not surprising as Government data tells us that by 2030 we will see a 50 per cent rise in the number of over-65s and a doubling in over-85s.

“The market needs quality places for them to live independently with access to care when needed.”

Last year the company invested more than £1 million to create the 4Life Academy in Perry Barr, which has already trained some 2,000 people.
