Booming builder takes on new staff

A flourishing house builder has taken on extra staff to help it cope with a big rise in demand.

A team of six new graduate recruits have joined Persimmon Homes West Yorkshire as it continues to see increased demand for new homes across its developments.

Managing Director Wayne Gradwell said the company had enjoyed an excellent start to the year and was now building on that success.

“Nationally we have seen a 15 per cent increase in visitors to our developments and that is a trend reflected across our region. Initiatives such as Help to Buy have brought some real confidence back to the market and reservations across our sites are all up on last year.

“As a result of this growth we have been able to take on talented new staff in a variety of roles, who we are certain will make a long and valuable contribution to the continued success of the business.”

The new roles include a Graduate Buyer, Graduate Planners, a Graduate Architechtural Technician, a Graduate Engineer and a Graduate Quantity Surveyor.

Persimmon Homes West Yorkshire is delivering quality new homes across Bradford, Barnsley, Leeds, Huddersfield and Pontefract.

Wayne added: “We are working terrifically hard to deliver new homes to people across the region. We remain committed to working closely with local communities to deliver excellent new sites in desirable locations, starting construction at these sites as soon as they achieve an implementable detailed planning consent.”
