Peterborough-based construction firm launches recruitment drive


Peterborough-based construction company, Lindum recruiting for dozens of jobs in the city

Lindum, based in Newark Road, is currently looking to fill a range of skilled technical and trade positions. 

Jobs on offer include contracts manager, design co-ordinator and working foreman and well as site managers, bricklayers and general labourers. 

It comes as Lindum continues to increase its operations in the Peterborough area, with new contracts including construction of a new headquarters for MAGPAS air ambulance, a two-storey office block and haulage yard for Maritime Haulage Company and a host of refurbishments works in schools over the summer break. 

Managing director Darren King said it was a rare opportunity for new employees to join a thriving business. 

“The last few years have been an uncertain time for everyone thanks to Covid and Brexit,” he said. “But we are pleased to say that at Lindum Peterborough, we have a healthy-looking order book and a positive-looking future. 

“We are keen to hear from people who are looking to take the next step in their careers. We have a variety of different roles on offer. Some require previous experience but others would be a great first step on the ladder. 

“Lindum offers permanent employment, rather than temporary roles, as well as holiday pay, bonuses and a pension scheme. 

“We are also employee-owned, which means staff have the opportunity to buy shares in the company and benefit directly from their hard work and successes."

Lindum has operated in Peterborough for more than 60 years.

The company invested £2m to set up the Lindum Business Park 10 years ago, transforming the previously run down, unoccupied, Mansons’ property in Newark Road into 12,500 sq ft of office accommodation and a further 8,350sq ft of industrial premises. 

Since 2011, it has grown from having 40 employees in the city to nearly 100, including Lindum’s specialist roofing and cladding division.
