Investment in people makes the difference for Southam developer

Bloor Homes South Midlands, which operates the Southam Grange development in Southam, is celebrating its approach to growing and nurturing talent, having increased the number of regional employees by more than 80% in the last 5 years.

A family owned housebuilder with 10 developments across Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, Bloor Homes places great importance on training and development, offering employees a genuine career path which sees them draw on the experience and knowledge of more senior staff for support.

Indeed, since the commencement of the trainee and apprenticeship scheme in 2013, 12 site apprentices and five Trainee Engineers and Architectural Technicians have joined the South Midlands team, benefiting from both financial support to fund their ongoing education and the chance to learn on the job from experienced professionals.  

Regional managing director, Richard Sarraff comments: “As one of the largest family run house builders in the UK people really do sit at the heart of our success.

“We always look to recruit talented, dedicated and passionate individuals but our commitment goes much further; it is about ensuring each team member has a clear path for progression and always feels valued so that we can retain both them and their expertise within the business.”

One such employee who has benefited from Bloor Homes’ commitment to mentoring is recently promoted Assistant Engineer, Charlie Waumsley.

Having joined the company in 2013 as a Trainee Engineer, Charlie undertook a HNC in Engineering. After two years Charlie was lucky enough to have the opportunity to continue with his qualifications by commencing his BEng in Civil Engineering and is encouraging other aspiring engineers within the area to consider a similar path.

Charlie explains: “Undertaking a professional qualification alongside a trainee role where I got the chance to demonstrate my ability from day one was the best decision I ever made. The support I have received from the Bloor Homes team has been fantastic – as well as funding and supporting me through college and now university, they have taught me so much more.

“I have gained invaluable guidance from colleagues across the business and the satisfaction I get from knowing I am helping to build the perfect home for someone is second to none.

“When I complete my degree I won’t owe a penny and I will already have five years on the job experience – what could be better than that.”

Richard concludes: “At Bloor Homes we are always looking for talented individuals to join our team – if you want become part of a business that will value you and your ideas why not get in touch.”

"Chris and the team at eHB have provided my wife and I with an amazing service. Given we are the other side of the world in Sydney, selling a house in the UK can be challenging/daunting. Chris made sure that the whole process was incredibly smooth. eHB provided us with sound advice, have been very efficient and quick to follow up any queries. We have also used eHB to rent the property for the last 7 years and it's been a great experience. The vetting and qualification process for both tenants and buyers has been sound. We have had amazing tenants and we had a great long list of potential buyers that were well qualified. Chris and the team got the house off the market in record time, for a great price. I would highly recommend eHB for both sale and rental. Thanks for your great efforts guys, it's been a pleasure working with you. Cheers."
