Length of time at Bellway: 3 years.
About you and your career history at Bellway/in Construction?
I started out as a bricklayer from school, I progressed through the ranks and I have been site managing now for around 16 years. I achieved my CIOB certificate and diploma at night school standing me in good stead for a career in site management.
I joined Bellway Yorkshire in June 2017 and have just begun my 3rd year.
Initially helping with year-end plots and covering various sites, I began my first full site for Bellway in September 2016 at Frobisher Court Finningley. This was a 45 unit site including a barn conversion.
The site ran and sold superbly and saw me achieve the overall LABC National Site Manager of the Year award in London after winning the regional final earlier in the year.
This is without exception the highest point of my career and being able to enjoy it in London with my Wife and directors was very special! And the memory will stay with me for a very long time.
Featuring in the Bellway Brief made me proud to be part of this company and bringing the award home for Yorkshire made all the hard work worthwhile.
I am now on my next site at Imperial Gardens Howden (300 units over 2 phases) and up to now the site is progressing nicely.
