These include the construction of a new headquarters for MAGPAS air ambulance, a two-storey office block and haulage yard for Maritime Haulage Company and a host of refurbishments works in schools over the summer break.

It has also built GB Railfreight’s new £3.6 million control centre at Maskew Avenue, and is currently working on a new £2.2 million cattery - complete with number of secure areas called ‘catios’ - for the Wood Green animal shelter.

Managing director Darren King said: “The last few years have been an uncertain time for everyone thanks to Covid and Brexit.

“But we are pleased to say that at Lindum Peterborough, we have a healthy-looking order book and a positive-looking future.

Construction work is underway on the new cattery.

“We are keen to hear from people who are looking to take the next step in their careers.

“We have a variety of different roles on offer.

“Some require previous experience but others would be a great first step on the ladder.

“Lindum offers permanent employment, rather than temporary roles, as well as holiday pay, bonuses and a pension scheme.

“We are also employee-owned, which means staff have the opportunity to buy shares in the company and benefit directly from their hard work and successes.”

In 2011, Lindum invested £2 million to transform the unoccupied, Mansons’ property in Newark Road into 12,500sq ft of office accommodation with 8,350sq ft of industrial premises.
