Recruitment Specialist Brings Construction Back to Nottingham

Thorn Baker Group is to reopen its specialist construction offering in Nottingham and welcomes back a familiar face to support the industry in finding skilled workers.

Recruitment specialist Thorn Baker Group has announced the reopening of its dedicated construction brand in Nottingham and welcomes back building sector specialist Demi Harman, following a 10 year hiatus.

Demi Harman, a familiar face on Nottingham’s building and construction scene, has re-joined Thorn Baker to head up the new team and will be joined by colleague Khial Farrow, an experienced Fit-out Recruitment Consultant, who will be relocating to Nottingham from London to build up the team. Two further new jobs will be created from August onwards and the team has plans for rapid expansion into 2020 and beyond.

Rob Ford, Group Director and Head of Thorn Baker Construction, said: “Due to a UK-wide shortage of construction skills, many businesses are increasingly looking for specialist support in finding the right talent for a range of construction projects, including commercial development, residential housing, shop fit outs and office refurbishment, as well as demolition.”

“With a heritage in Nottingham and it being centrally located in the UK, it makes sense for us to build our latest construction team here. Plus, we’re really excited to have Demi Harman back with us to drive the business forward.”

Thorn Baker’s new construction team will be operating out of the Groups Nottingham head office and its set to be officially open from August 2019. Initially it will focus on all trades including carpenters, joiners, bricklayers, electricians and plumbers, as well as general labouring roles. The move is the latest from Thorn Baker Group to ensure Thorn Baker Construction is the market leader in recruitment for the construction sector.

Heading up the new Nottingham construction brand, Demi Harman added: “It’s great to be back in the Thorn Baker team after over a decade away. A lot has happened in that time and it’s fantastic to see the growth and enthusiasm in the Group for its staff, clients and candidates. I love Nottingham and there are some really exciting construction projects underway across the East Midlands that we hope to support, providing high quality, site-fit, ready-to-start candidates.”

Thorn Baker Group now manages the recruitment needs of companies across the UK, placing over 30,000 candidates in jobs each year.
