Around 70 new jobs are being created at a leading North East construction firm.

The County Durham-based Esh Group is opening up 20 management posts and 50 roles elsewhere in the business, following a growth in demand for its construction and property services.

Esh has an annual turnover of around £200m and employs roughly 1000 people.

The recruitment campaign, led by director Michael Henderson, is being promoted via social media.

Open events for those interested will also be held between 4pm and 9pm on June 26 at Middlesbrough Football Club, July 2 at Newcastle United Football Club and July 8 at De Vere Village in Castleford, Yorkshire.

Managing director of Esh Construction John Davies said: “We’ve got tremendous work pipelines across all divisions and regions of the business – in particular in our civil engineering, commercial build and house building operations in the North East, Cumbria and Yorkshire.

“We’re offering excellent job opportunities at almost every level of the business from construction directors to trainees and operatives. This is a great chance for anyone who is already in construction and wants a change, or is in another sector and wants to get into construction.”

All expressions of interest and applications are being directed through the confidential portal
