OVERVIEW

Since the company’s formation in 1969, Danaher & Walsh has expanded rapidly and is now regarded as one of the most well-respected, family-owned construction businesses in the Midlands. Since the late eighties the company has concentrated its activities in two key business areas; civil engineering and plant hire. As a business, they currently have a turnover of £15m and have ambitious plans to grow that figure to £30m in the next 5 years.

The civil engineering division has developed into a business that can now boast an impressive client portfolio from both public and private sectors. It specialises in framework agreements, highway works including Section 278 agreements, bridgeworks, car parks, drainage, infrastructure, environmental and public realm works. Their work is typically within a 35 mile radius of their offices in the North of Leicester, with the occasional project further afield.

They are an award winning employer having won awards such as Best Leicestershire Business of the Year (2015) with the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce as well as being ranked in the Top 100 companies of the Year (2016) by New Civil Engineer. They have recently moved to their brand new offices in Mountsorrel, Leicester and they offer an excellent working environment for staff with a popular work culture to the business that ensures they have an extremely low staff turnover.

If you want to work for a rapidly growing, family ran contractor where you really feel like you can make a difference and be an influential contributor to their success, then Danaher & Walsh could be the perfect employer for you.
