Thorn Baker’s Nottingham construction team: Khial Farrow, Demi Harman and Rob Ford

Recruitment specialist Thorn Baker Group has reopened its dedicated construction brand in Nottingham.

It has welcomed back building sector specialist Demi Harman after 10 years away. She is joined by Khial Farrow, who is relocating from London, with the agency expecting to recruit two more people shortly.

Rob Ford, group director and head of Thorn Baker Construction, said: “Due to a UK-wide shortage of construction skills, many businesses are increasingly looking for specialist support in finding the right talent.

“With a heritage in Nottingham and it being centrally located in the UK, it makes sense for us to build our latest construction team here.”
