Leeds site manager Joe Ramsbottom from housebuilder Redrow has credited his 40-strong team for receiving a Quality Award at the NHBC’s annual Pride in the Job Awards.
Pride in the Job celebrates the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality.
With more than 16,000 managers competing for the awards, this year’s winners have been hand-picked for their excellent standards on site. Following 12 months of rigorous judging, these first round winners excelled and will now go on to compete for the Seal of Excellence and Regional Winner titles.
Joe, from Birstall, West Yorkshire, a Redrow Yorkshire site manager, has earned the sought-after accolade for the first time. The 27 year old currently leads the team at Redrow’s development, The Hawthorns, five miles outside Leeds.
Said Joe, who joined Redrow six years ago, straight from university, as a graduate trainee: “I am very proud of my team, especially my assistant manager, Nigel Stancliffe, I couldn’t have done it without them. I am also very competitive and I was determined I was going to win.
“Your standards are judged throughout the year, with everything from site presentation to health and safety and the team made sure everything was undertaken to the highest specification.
“It means a lot to me professionally that our customers can be confident we take great pride in our work.”
Joe was one of three winning site managers in the Yorkshire region for Redrow.
John Tutte, Executive Chairman at Redrow, commented: “We’re pleased to report that a record number of our site managers received a Pride in the Job award from the NHBC. It’s testament to the fantastic work and commitment from our team that we are able to pick up so many awards this year.
“I am proud of all of our award-winning site managers. I wish all of today’s winners the very best of luck for the next round in the autumn.
“The increasing number of high-achievers at Redrow is testament to the company’s commitment to learning and development.”
Redrow, which this year secured the top Five Star rating by the Home Builders Federation (HBF), based on a survey of its customers in which more than 90% said they would recommend Redrow to a friend, is also the only major housebuilder to have its own dedicated housebuilding degree. The degree is available to all company’s employees, including site managers, ensuring that employees not only excel in their role but work towards achieving professional recognition.
Following the announcement of the first-round winners, all successful site managers are invited to attend the Regional Award ceremonies held in the Autumn to celebrate their exceptional achievement and go on to compete for a Seal of Excellence and a Regional Award in their respective categories.
