The expansion of Redrow Homes' division in Yorkshire has already created 13 new jobs across Yorkshire and north Lincolnshire.

  • The Wakefield-based company has taken on new staff across its business including construction workers, sales consultants, designers, apprentices and trainees.

    Openings have been created at existing new homes development in Wakefield, Guiseley, Cottingham, Easingwold, Steeton, Grimsby and Barton upon Humber, as well as the company's divisional headquarters at Wakefield 41 business park.

    The company has also shored up its team in preparation for the launch of several new developments over the coming months, including new homes in Horsforth, Leeds and Dodworth, near Barnsley.

    John Grime, managing director for Redrow Homes in Yorkshire, says: "In the past 12 months, we have launched three new developments Sandringham Gardens in Wakefield, Oaklands in Easingwold and Manor Fields in Steeton. Between them, these three locations will eventually provide 322 new homes.

    "We also have a number of new sites in the pipeline and are constantly looking for land with development potential. With that in mind it's vital that we expand our team so that we can continue to grow. The new recruits bring a wealth of experience with them adding strength and depth to the existing team."

    The latest additions to Redrow's development based team include sales consultants Kathleen Lyon, Kimberley Kennedy, James Rodi and Helen Willis, site managers Dion Sykes and Trevor McCartney and apprentice plumber Matthew Wakefield.

    The new recruits at Wakefield 41 are land manager Alain Swain, land assistant Adam Riding, senior design engineer Victoria Brayshaw, customer services co-ordinator Josh Russell and admin apprentice Amy Walker.

    Rebecca Don is also joining the Redrow team as a design assistant, having completed a year-long placement on the company's undergraduate training scheme.

    Among the new recruits, senior design engineer Victoria Brayshaw has a first class Master's degree in civil engineering from the University of Warwick, is a chartered civil engineer and worked as a consultant for six years before being appointed by Redrow.

    Brayshaw, 29, who lives in Leeds, said: "I wanted to work for Redrow as the company has a reputation for building quality homes in good locations. In fact they're homes I'd like to live in, in places I'd like to live.

    "The highlight so far has been working on some technically challenging projects. My background is in highways, drainage and flood risk so I've been able to use my experience to help plan new sites."
