Recruitment drive

Cameron Homes is looking to fill a range of positions, from apprenticeships to accountants, at its Chasetown head office and other bases.

The firm, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2018, is set to increase turnover to £90 million this year, together with sister company Galliers Homes.

It is widening its operating area to cover eight counties of central England and wants to take on more staff to continue its growth.

“We aim to complete around 330 properties at developments throughout the Midlands this year and expansion will continue throughout 2019 so we need to strengthen our teams,” explained chief operations officer Paul Morrissey.

“Last year saw Cameron and Galliers increase total staff by almost half, to 130 people, and we are now opening up new offices in Stratford-upon-Avon, Chasetown and the East Midlands.

“Our dynamic progress is good news for the local economy and we are pleased to be in a position to take on more people.

“We are also providing new training facilities in an additional office in Chasetown to ensure that our staff have the skills they require to succeed.”

The new roles include an internal communications manager, east Midlands sales manager, regional marketing executive, customer care co-ordinator, management accountant, IT technician, land manager and land and planning graduate, as well as apprenticeships.

“With company growth we are recruiting across all disciplines but are definitely seeing a shortage of bricklayers across the West and East Midlands, particularly in Staffordshire and Derbyshire so are keen to recruit in this trade,” Paul added.
