Barratt Developments appeals for more sub-contractors in East Lothian
With household names Barratt and David Wilson Homes, the housebuilder says as the economy continues to pick up and demand for new homes increases, it’s vital that it has the skilled labour in place.
Alison Condie, managing director, Barratt Homes East Scotland, said: “We have ambitious growth plans and are looking to supplement our sub-contractor base in East Lothian. We would like to hear from sole traders right the way through to larger companies who can provide trade services for the domestic building sector.
“They could have worked with us before or are new to the organisation. Equally, they could currently be working in the commercial sector and are looking to move over to house building. The trades we’re looking for include groundworkers, electricians, plumbers, painter and decorators, joiners, roofers, scaffolders, plasterers/dry liners and bricklayers.”
Barratt Homes is also keen to help ambitious trades people who are looking to start their own businesses.
Alison added: “Providing people with business opportunities and the environment in which to thrive, through regular work and mentoring, is one of the huge benefits we offer. Our philosophy is straightforward. We recognise sub-contractors are vital to our business and with Barratt Developments we are looking for genuine partnerships where all parties move forward together.”
