Aptus Utilities Ltd is a multi utility connections provider, working alongside construction firms on residential, commercial and industrial developments across the Midlands and North of England.
We build and install utility networks for gas, water, electricity and street lighting for our clients across a range of sites and on single or multi-plot developments.
We work with the biggest names in the industry – Persimmon, Barratt Homes, Taylor Wimpey, Redrow, Story Homes, Seddon and many others as well as local independent builders. Our successful business model has led to rapid growth across the company, demanding regular recruitment to support expansion.
Our head office is based in Bolton and is supported by offices and depots at Leyland, Penrith and Gateshead.
Our people are our most valued asset and we take great care to recruit the right personnel for our team. The company has grown at a fast rate but retains the family ethos we set out with and we work hard to ensure that new employees feel welcome and are comfortably integrated.
Valuing our workforce makes for a happy and productive environment and supports our aim to consistently deliver utility projects to the highest standards of safety, quality and technical expertise. This in turn helps us to achieve our primary objective: keeping our customers happy.
Aptus Utilities is undergoing rapid growth with new depots opening in Penrith and Gateshead to support our North West and North East expansion. Around 70 employees are based at our headquarters in Bolton, while offices in Penrith and Gateshead also support our broad programme of operations, which extend across the Midlands and North.
We regularly recruit on both the business and construction side of the company, and offer a diverse range of roles from estimators and utility design teams to quantity surveyors, commercial roles and our highly skilled site operatives.
