Up to 15 new jobs are set to be created as Clarkson Evans, one of the UK’s leading electrical contractors, expands into Bristol.

Gloucester-based Clarkson Evans specialises in wiring new homes for the UK’s leading housing developers, wiring around 1 in 10 of all new properties built in England and Wales last year.

Now an increase in workloads in the south west means they’re setting up premises in Bristol and are looking to recruit electricians and apprentices in the local area.

The new branch is located next to the M5 near Gordano Services and will improve efficiency for the Clarkson Evans’ teams working in the area, reducing their travelling time and making it easier for staff to collect materials at the start of each day.

“We’ve secured a lot of work in Bristol with builders including Barratt, Bovis, Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey,” said Steve Evans, Managing Director of Clarkson Evans.

“And we’re already working on several major housing developments in the Bristol area so now is the ideal time for us to set up a new branch.”

“We have a strong track record of offering much-needed apprenticeships that lead to long-term career opportunities with us,” said Mr Evans.

“We’ve already been interviewing some very good applicants in the area and we’re looking forward to welcoming them on board, initially creating up to 15 new jobs.”

The new Bristol branch will be managed by Stephen Evans. Former Bracknell branch supervisor Stephen started off with Clarkson Evans as an apprentice before progressing to become a team leader and then a branch supervisor.

In total Clarkson Evans employs around 600 staff and operates across much of southern England, the Midlands and south Wales. Despite operating in an industry that was hit hard by the recession, the company has been steadily expanding in the last five years and its new Bristol premises will increase the total number of branches to 14.
