Developer Larkfleet Group has created three new roles within its group of companies which are providing young businessmen with invaluable experience.

Tom Kelly from Stamford and Angus Riddel and Craig Templeman from Peterborough are working with the directors of Bourne-based Larkfleet Group in order to gain knowledge and insight into how a successful business operates.

Tom, 26, has taken on the role of business manager for chief executive of Larkfleet Group, Karl Hick, after a 15 month spell at group company Lark Energy.

Tom is helping Karl further Larkfleet Group’s growth within the sustainability sector by reporting on the progress of various renewable energy ventures and assisting in bringing new technologies and projects to fruition.

Angus, 23, is filling the role of graduate business manager and is shadowing Jonathan Selwyn, the managing director of group company Lark Energy. Lark Energy focuses on financing, developing and installing large scale, commercial solar projects as stand-alone energy assets.

Angus conducts business analysis and research on potential business opportunities and assists with the management of specific projects and budgets.

Craig, 22, is the business development manager for Larkfleet Group company Deepings Building and Plumbing Supplies.

His role involves working closely with other group companies such as Lark Energy and Larkfleet Renewables.

Mr Hick said: “Larkfleet is committed to investing in the future of young people and has been running construction apprenticeships for many years.

“I hope that these more business-focused roles that these young graduates have filled will create a pathway for new young recruits to follow in years to come.”
