Kier is holding a 'Meet the Buyer' event in North Yorkshire next week to find new trade contractors and workers for its £6.4 million housing maintenance contract with Richmondshire District Council.

Kier is looking to recruit a brand new local workforce for the four-year deal and add local subcontractors to its supply chain.

Work is available for firms and individuals specialising in gas maintenance, plumbing and heating as well as other trades.

The event will take place on Wednesday 21 March between 1pm and 6pm at Richmondshire Cricket Club, Hurgill Road, Richmond, North Yorkshire.

All business owners are welcome and no prior appointment is necessary.
