Housebuilder Story Homes is launching a recruitment drive to support the company’s rapid growth and expansion across the North West.

The Carlisle-based house builder is looking to recruit around 10 new permanent positions in the North West, as part of a three year strategic recruitment plan which will see over 100 jobs created at Story Homes.

“We have significant plans to expand our operations and naturally we want to attract high quality people to our team who can help make it happen.

At the same time, Story Homes is also keen to use local sub-contractors and key trades people in the region.

The firm already has a number of residential projects in Lancashire at different stages of development.

The most advanced is High Wood in Lancaster, which has been incredibly successful with 47 homes already occupied, while others in Kirkham, Clitheroe, and Preston are at relatively early stages.

Chief Executive Steve Errington: “We have significant plans to expand our operations and naturally we want to attract high quality people to our team who can help make it happen.

“In 2015-16 we are projected to deliver more than 550 properties to the market.

“We aim to increase this to around 1000 properties by 2018 and the north west will play a big part in making that target a reality.”

HR Advisor Helen McGuinness said: “Because of the expansion of the business and new developments opening across Lancashire and beyond, we are looking for talented professionals to join our team. We are recruiting a range of different roles including strategic planners, utilities co-ordinators, strategic land buyers and senior quantity surveyors.

“We are also committed to forging key partnerships with local sub contractors and the local supply chain.”
