Kingswood recruits three to growing team

Kingswood Homes has made three new appointments to support its ambitions of increasing output from 100 homes per year to 250 by 2025.

Andy Dainton has joined as engineering manager, Hayley Cain as senior buyer and Anthony Hodkinson as architectural technologist. 

Andy joined the business from Taylor Wimpey Manchester, where he worked as technical manager for almost a decade.

Hayley completed a management apprenticeship course with Travis Perkins in 2015, where she went on to become assistant branch manager. She made the move into a buying role with Create Homes in November 2019 and recently joined Kingswood Homes as a senior buyer.

She said: ""My merchant background helps because of my knowledge of the materials used on site and products available to us. I’ve built relationships in the merchant industry as a supplier on a B2B platform and now in the new build sector as a buyer/customer, which is a benefit in the current unstable climate where some materials can be hard to come by.

"I look forward to developing my knowledge and experience with Kingswood Homes. There are exciting times ahead and it’s great to be a part of such an ambitious and organised business.”

Anthony joined the Kingswood team from Engie, where he was a design coordinator in the regeneration sector.

The Little Hoole-based homebuilder now directly employs 41 people.

Paul Jones, managing director, said: "Recruitment is key to our growth plans as we need to ensure we have the right skillset to drive the business forward. Between them Andy, Hayley and Anthony have a diverse range of experience that will be beneficial to Kingswood as we push towards delivering 250 homes a year."
