Gateshead's Tolent boosts £212m workload with new recruits
Gateshead-based contractor Tolent welcomed 17 new recruits to the business in April and May as it sees its workload soar to £212m across the UK.
Roles recruited for include a mixture of on and off-site positions including two senior quantity surveyors, alongside two assistant project managers.
The business also took on two more trainee engineers and two students from the PlanBEE programme.
Andy Mcleod, CEO at Tolent, said: “Tolent is a business all about people, whether that’s colleagues, clients, communities or our supply chain and it’s always a pleasure to welcome new faces into the business.
“We’ve historically had a great track record within the construction industry, so with recent announcements including Milburngate and future plans like the proposed £190m garden village in Seaham, we’ll be focusing on how we develop our teams to ensure we’re in a strong position looking forward to 2020 and beyond.”
The recent Milburngate contract win that will see Tolent deliver a major regeneration scheme in Durham for the Arlington Richardson Development Partnership, includes 153 executive apartments, hotel, office and commercial space and is the latest regionally-significant project the business has been involved with.
Stacey Dew, information manager at Tolent, said: “I’m delighted to be joining the team at Tolent, it’s a business that has been synonymous with the construction industry in the North East for many years.
“In my role as information manager, I work with teams to assist with document control on sites, as well as capturing and using data linked with digital models of the projects we work on.”
The proposed plans include 1,500 homes, half of which will be affordable houses and half of the village will be managed green space, including extensive parkland, a football pitch, play areas and allotments.
