Recruitment drive supports growth plans at construction business

Morgan Sindall Construction is looking to further expand its presence in Yorkshire and the North East.

It follows the launch of a strategy that will see it target commercial, public sector and mixed-use regeneration projects.

The plans are supported by a recruitment drive which has seen the company hire over 20 new professionals into its team so far in 2020 with a similar number targeted for further growth in 2021.

Operating out of the company’s Wakefield office, the new staff will help drive the growth strategy, which will focus on supporting project partners from across the public and private sectors.

Andy Hall, managing director for Morgan Sindall Construction in Yorkshire and the North East, said: “Over recent years we’ve delivered landmark projects in our region such as Leeds Skelton Lake Services and the Barbara Hepworth Building at the University of Huddersfield.

“We now want to build upon our experience on those projects and undertake a greater range of schemes and developments across the region.

“As a contractor we deliver valuable outcomes not just in terms of the schemes themselves, but also in our work creating employment and educational opportunities for local people.

“We have exceptional people at Morgan Sindall Construction, and we look forward to welcoming more members of the team that will help us fulfil our vision for our work across Yorkshire and the North East.”

The business is set to start work on a new building for the Horsforth School in Leeds early next year.
