New faces lead site searches
Housebuilder David Wilson Homes East Midlands has recruited two new people to its land department as the Bardon firm steps up its search for new development sites.
The appointments come after the company announced a total of 1,500 jobs will be created thanks to the launch of several new developments across Leicestershire.
John Reddington, managing director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: "We're obviously delighted to have more hands on deck to help us acquire new land for the division – which is also great news for the economy.
"One of the best ways to boost economic growth and employment is through building projects. A whole range of jobs are created as part of the process and the people who ultimately move into the new housing will also spend their wages locally, which translates into a significant boost for local retailers."
