Graham, Senior Branch Partner

In this section

I run a Residential Sales office

I’ve been with the company 25 years and wouldn’t change the people I work with. We are focused and driven to be successful at our jobs. Our branch was 4th in the whole company last year.

We have the best training around with Field Trainers who are really passionate about what they do. We’ve become a training branch – it’s a great place for new recruits as we have plenty of old hands who can show them the ropes. There’s comprehensive support for new starters and it’s continuous throughout your career. The company is always quick to respond to changes in the industry.

I’ve always had a very healthy relationship with the managers around me. They’re always there if you need to speak to them. There's a good vision for the company with great people at the top leading us.

There is a quick career path for potential high achievers

I started in branch and worked my way through the ranks to become Senior Branch Partner here in Herne Bay. You’ll be encouraged to take on new challenges and develop your skills. There is no substitute for experience and so we also make sure that extra responsibility only comes when you’re ready for it. We don’t employ people and expect them to fail. Success comes from enjoying your job and doing it for the right reasons.

We’re a company with a social conscience and there’s lots of charity work throughout the year including the Children’s Awards. It’s brilliant to be able to give acknowledgement to people who otherwise wouldn’t get it and the events do a lot for the strong sense of being in a team that we have. There’s support for other charity work staff do and we take part in sporting events as well.
