Kier in the North East
Kier is helping the North East to realise its ambitions to make a greater contribution to the UK economy through wider collaboration and partnership across the whole of the north of England. Supporting the creation of jobs and providing opportunity continues to be a priority across the region, particularly in communities embracing the challenge of economic regeneration. We are proud to be helping with the transformation that is making cities across the region some of the most progressive and attractive in the north of England.
Kier has successfully operated across the region for decades which is why we decided to play a leading role in the foundation of the Northern Powerhouse initiative. In recent years we have been generating over £2bn of wider economic activity across the whole of the north of England, by offering a breadth of capabilities across the entire region. We are bringing together skills from across our business and employing 5,500 people, delivering an integrated offer to our valuable customers and helping to boost regional economies at the same time.
