He will report to technical director, Peter Henry, and support the team across a number of its development sites, including Waverley and Logistics North.

Harworth has grown its core workforce by more than a quarter in the past 12 months as confidence continues to rise in the Northern and Midlands property markets.

Its assets were valued at £284m in December 2013, up from £24m at the end of December 2012.

This year the company has moved forward with a number of developments of regional significance, including Logistics North at Bolton, the UK’s sixth-largest industrial scheme with live planning permission.
