National housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes, is celebrating a successful financial year which saw profits rise by 49% and seven new sites launch across the country, in turn leading to a flurry of internal promotions.
Among the senior team, Martin Install – who has been with St. Modwen Homes for 8 years – has taken up the role of Commercial Director and will be responsible for the commercial department going forward, leading a team of 20.
Nick Thawley has been promoted to Contracts Manager after three years as a Projects Manager across all sites in Staffordshire, while Chris Prosser has been promoted to Managing Surveyor and will focus on all commercial aspects for projects in the Midlands and North West.
Alongside the senior promotions, three trainee sales consultants have also worked their way up to Sales Consultants, completing the housebuilder’s trainee scheme.
Dave Smith, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “From Director level, right down to our trainees, these promotions recognise the sterling work done by the team, and show St. Modwen Homes’ commitment to rewarding talent and hard work across the business.
“The past 12 months have seen huge growth for St. Modwen Homes, and, as we look to expand even further, we continue to focus on combatting the skills shortage and the lack of people entering the industry with our Graduate and Trainee Scheme. We are also working alongside schools and colleges to position housebuilding as a desirable career choice.”
This year, St. Modwen Homes is set to increase the number of trainees and graduates by 40% across all departments. The trainees will be given hands-on training in construction, commercial, technical and marketing and sales, including the strategy behind housebuilding, customer service and what it means to be a considerate housebuilder. Moving forwards, St. Modwen Homes will also be recruiting trainees within the construction teams at its developments.
St. Modwen Homes is currently active on 17 developments in the UK, and is set to deliver around 750 homes this year alone.
