One of Gwent’s leading employers has begun a job expansion drive following a number of new client wins and national contract awards.

Road recovery and fleet maintenance agency the Caldicot Group already employs more than 70 people at its depots in Caldicot and Walsall from where it serves a customer base of more than 500 businesses.

The company has enjoyed a strong financial year with new customer growth of more than 50% and as part of this expansion is now looking to increase its workforce of professional fitters and HGV and LGV drivers.

To ensure the business attracts the brightest talent, it has developed above industry average salary opportunities for new and existing team members. These include annual packages of more than £40,000 for Class 1 fitters as well as flexible four on four off shift patterns.

Gavin Edwards, Managing Director of the Caldicot Group, said: “We have enjoyed encouraging success in 2017 with significant growth in new customers. This is largely down to the fact that we have delivered a level of service that fundamentally recognises the needs of individual businesses.

“We are now looking to expand our team of fitters and HGV and LGV drivers to serve these new and existing clients. As a company we pride ourselves on being an employer of choice within the industry that attracts and employs the very best professionals. It is crucial we continue doing so and to achieve this means rewarding our team members both financially and with regards to their working environment and career progression opportunities. That is why we have made significant recent investments in our workforce and will continue to do so as we expand the number of people we employ.”
