All of the team at Leighton are looking forward to sharing our digital expertise and passion for customer experience with Home Group on this exciting programme of online development.”
McCalmont adds that the contract will lead to the creation of up to 10 new development jobs at Leighton’s County Durham headquarters over the course of the agreement.
