The summer school follows the company’s 14th place ranking in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For. It comes as Willmott Dixon, based out of its Oldham office, is working on a host of projects in the North West including building the Schuster annex at The University of Manchester, extending Manchester Enterprise Academy, plus delivering over £100m of work in Liverpool including a new food market, car park and a school in Fazakerley.
