Causeway Technologies has launched a new regional hub in Birkenhead, which is expected to create 20 “state-of-the-art construction technology sales jobs” in the Merseyside town.
Causeway’s new office at Peel L&P’s Hythe in Wirral Waters, Birkenhead was opened last week by British hockey star Sam Quek MBE.
The gold medal-winning Olympian and TV personality cut the ribbon alongside Phil Brown, Causeway’s chief executive, and Trevor Steven, Everton’s legendary midfielder and now Causeway’s mental health ambassador.
The firm says it marks another milestone in the growth of the business which secured a major £120 million investment in 2021 to boost the continued development of its software for construction.
The Wirral Waters office ties in with the look and feel of Causeway’s existing centre of engineering excellence in Middlesbrough, its offices in Ireland and India, and its headquarters in Gerrards Cross.
Leisa Docherty, chief people officer at Causeway, said: “As Causeway’s sales hub and centre of excellence in the north, the new office at Wirral Waters provides a great place to work with excellent facilities for our growing team.
“The space has been designed to reflect its history as being home to the former Seacombe Smalt Works, established in the early nineteenth century, with a nod to the local region.
“We’re excited to continue creating jobs and building our talent pipeline in Merseyside. Our aim is to support the local community, not only as an employer but also with our CSR plans by enabling employees to volunteer in support of the local community.
“We have some great opportunities for entry-level sales development positions, which will be based at our fantastic new office.”
Phil Brown, chief executive of Causeway, said: “As we continue to develop our platform, our strategic priority is to be at the forefront of the digitalisation of construction to help companies not only streamline their processes but also lower their environmental impact.
“It is clear that the construction industry urgently needs and wants good technology solutions, so the future is very bright for those who join this sector. They will be the changemakers in this exciting industry.”
Richard Mawdsley, director of development for Wirral Waters at Peel L&P, added: “Hythe really is appealing to exciting and innovative businesses that see sustainability and technology as core parts of their growth strategy.
“This is exactly why we created Hythe, to attract ground-breaking and environmentally conscious businesses and entrepreneurs to the Wirral, helping to accelerate growth and attract economic prosperity.
“We are very pleased to welcome the Causeway team to Hythe and we look forward to seeing the growth and success they achieve from their new premises.”
