Woodhead expanding to meet demand

Posted onPosted on 6th Jan

Construction contractor Robert Woodhead Limited – part of the Woodhead Group – is growing its team as it looks to build on a strong 2021.

Recently appointed to several key projects in the East Midlands, including the newly-announced Sherwood Observatory,  the contractor is looking to add more members to its workforce, both onsite and at its Edwinstowe headquarters.

Janine Borderick, people development director at Robert Woodhead Ltd said: “In what has been a tough climate for regional contractors over the last couple of years, Robert Woodhead Ltd has been able to retain a very strong presence across the East Midlands and beyond with major projects for long-term clients across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire

“We are incredibly proud of our Nottinghamshire roots and this plays out through the work we do. All of our projects have a strong focus on community and social value – over the last two years, we have created £113m of social value across all our projects.”

The company’s strong pipeline of work has meant that they are looking to add further experience to their roster of project managers, site managers, groundworkers and quantity surveyors as part of its ‘Own It, Achieve It and Improve It!’ initiative

Janine said: “With diverse and exciting projects on the horizon, we’re keen to hear from project managers, site managers, groundworkers and quantity surveyors who are looking for a new opportunity. One of the key benefits of working for the Woodhead Group is that we maintain the ethos of a family business. Our teams all genuinely care for each other and the work that they do, especially as – for many of them – the sites we operate on are local to them.”

The company also has a rare opening for a lead bid manager, working as part of a dynamic business development and pre-construction team to manage and write competitive bids to secure future work.

In addition, the Woodhead Group is also looking to fill several roles at its headquarters, including a catering assistant – a position with some unique benefits.

Janine said: “Having taken our catering in-house, we are looking for assistants that will be able to help feed our colleagues from the 40 other businesses that work at Edwinstowe House. While there is no shortage of roles such as this one, what sets this apart is the family-friendly working – the role is only within traditional office hours and doesn’t involve any shift work.”
