We are investing in our staff by sponsoring seven of them to complete a diploma course in leadership and management.
Chief Executive Tim Knight said: “We’re a forward-thinking organisation and look to grow talent from within the business wherever we can. It takes real energy and commitment to study on top of a full-time job, but it’s an investment worth making – both for my colleagues and for us as a business, so I’m really pleased that we can support people to gain new qualifications as part of their career progression”.
L to R: Housing Administration Leader Sue McLachlan, Housing Officer Richard Partington, Asset and Compliance Coordinator Sally Burford, Property Services Team Leader Pete Irvine, Property Services Manager Durel Hannah. The other course participants are Health and Safety Business Advisor Irusha Hewawasamge and ICT Operations Coordinator AnnMarie Acharya.
The Level 5 qualification, which is awarded by the Institute of Leadership and Management, takes eighteen months to complete and covers a series of modules, including strategic leadership, building a culture of continuous improvement and managing change.
