Over that time, we have gained a reputation for completing projects on-time and to the highest standard, with integrity, dedication, and a passion for delivering the very best for our clients.

The role

Leighs Construction is committed to Health and Safety, and we are recruiting Health and Safety Specialists (Site Based) to help drive our health and safety strategies and provide professional advice to our site teams in Christchurch to support our continued success.
