We have welcomed a number of new recruits as we look to boost our land pipeline, procure more sites for development and manage our expanding portfolio of completed schemes. Alexandra Walsh, Joe Hardy, and Steph Livesey have all joined the business over recent months, as part of a raft of new recruits helping us to grow across our core areas.
Alexandra Walsh joins our Caddick Land team as a Land and Planning Manager.

Alexandra brings a diversity of experience in property matters across the public and private sector. Her role now involves promoting prospective sites through the planning process creating new opportunities for both residential and employment projects.
Joe Hardy joins us as an Acquisitions Analyst, having graduated from his MSc in Property Development and Planning with a distinction from Nottingham Trent University. Joe completed a work placement apprenticeship with us last July and has since been accepted to join the company full-time. He has been working with the Land team to identify sites across the country for future residential and employment development, helping to expand the Group’s forward pipeline.
Steph Livesey completes the list of new starters, having joined this summer. Steph’s previous role was with a local estate agent as a commercial property manager and alongside working, she continues to study at the University of Estates College Management and is working towards her degree in Real Estate Management with an aim to become a chartered surveyor by 2025. She will be working with the Group’s existing asset management team, helping to manage and promote the new spaces and places that are being added to the company portfolio.
Myles Hartley, our MD commented: “We’ve seen sustained and healthy growth over recent years and our vertically integrated strategy as a Group is opening up new opportunities all the time as we adapt quicker than our competitors to evolving market conditions. With the breadth of services available across the Caddick Group, and an agile end-to-end offer, Caddick is in a prime position to see further success in the coming years.
“I am very pleased that we have our new members on board to help play an important part in furthering Caddick Group’s success across the residential and industrial sectors. These new hires demonstrate strength in depth, and the draw that the Caddick name has within the sector as an employer.
“Having invested in the future of the Yorkshire region and beyond, it’s great to see some new hires joining directly from the Caddick apprenticeship schemes. The scheme ensures commitment to growth and continues to go from strength to strength. I’m hugely positive to see what opportunities our new hires bring.”
