Repairs Working Supervisor

When did you start with us?

I started in June 2014

What were your first impressions of the team and company culture?

When I started, there was a lot of change in management but I settled in well and wouldn’t want to work in any other team. I’ve made some really good friends.

What’s your career journey been like up until now?

I did an apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery but was sadly made redundant, I then went on to work as a contractor for Kemble Housing. During this time, I applied for a position with Connexus, as a carpenter and was successful. I have since been promoted to the position of Working Supervisor within the Repairs Team which I really enjoy!

Being a large company, I saw the opportunity for progression. I wanted the chance to grow and develop.

What made you choose to work with Connexus above another company?

Being a large company, I saw the opportunity for progression. I wanted the chance to grow and develop.

What have been your impressions of Connexus so far?

The company has seen a lot of change since I started including the merger when we become Connexus. There has been some uncertainty but this has only made the team stronger. Connexus rolled out new T&Cs in January 2020 which have benefitted trades. Connexus is a good organisation to work for.
