Servo won an eight-way tender process, which was led by recently appointed FM Director Martine Harney, to provide facilities management services to practices across Leeds.

Ms Harney, said: “This contract win is a real coup for Servo – we’re thrilled to have won it, and to be creating a further 100 jobs in Leeds, at such an economically challenging time.

"The environmental and cost-saving benefits will be enormous too, which is paramount at the moment in the middle of the current pandemic. Ultimately more patients will be cared for because of the streamlined measures we are to put in place.”

A spokesman said: "Despite the current Covid-19 crisis, Servo Group has continued to flourish this year, taking its projected annual turnover to £12 million, just six years after its inception, and taking on a further five new head office employees. The firm has picked up a host of new contracts to add to its ever-growing portfolio."

Servo Group already has more than 600 staff working nationwide across its divisions, which will be boosted by this latest wave of job creation in Leeds from the CPCP contract.

Ms Harney added: “This is a major win for us, which is testament to the hard work of all our team and the fantastic reputation that Servo is gaining year-on-year. We are honoured to be able help to streamline processes for practices at such a crucial and challenging time.”

Servo, which has offices in Leeds and London, already has a number of high profile clients including National Rail, Keir, GMI, Buckingham Group and Balfour Beatty.

It recently launched an eco-friendly alternative to bricks and mortar on some of its major rail, housing and highway projects, and last year it invested £150,000 into expanding its sub-divisions on Gelderd Road to support the company’s growth.
