We are immensely proud to announce that we have been honoured as one of the ‘Best Places to Work in Property’, at the prestigious national Property Week awards. Overcoming tough competition from some of the biggest property giants in the industry, we even went on to surprise ourselves by winning two of the eight award categories: ‘leadership and planning’ and ‘relationship with supervisor’.
As newbies to all of this, this is the first year we have entered the awards, which are run by Best Companies Group and dedicated to finding and recognising the best employers in the property industry. A total of 52 companies made the national shortlist.
Category winners were decided based on results from a comprehensive staff survey, which questioned our business performance across areas including work/life balance, wellness initiatives, training and career development, and corporate culture and communications.
Commenting on the achievement, Carterwood co-founder and managing director, Amanda Nurse said: “Running the business with Ben Hartley over the last 10 years has been full of wonderfully proud moments, but none more so than winning two awards at the Property Week ‘Best Places to Work in Property’ awards.
“Our senior management team works so hard to ensure everyone is treated as an individual and has the opportunity to do work they love. The feedback from the staff survey shows we are going in the right direction. The comments made by staff about Carterwood were amazing, and it’s such a privilege to work with such a bright and capable team, who challenge me – in a good way – every single day. Ben and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
In case you didn’t know, we run an annual recruitment programme for students and graduates. We are also currently recruiting an IT manager and financial controller. Applications for both vacancies close Thursday 8 March.
