Tradesmen ‘tap’ into their full potential

7 December 2016 - Latest news

Two time-served tradesmen with a combined 47 years’ service have recently progressed into building surveyors’ roles at a local housing provider.

Martin Clish, 50, from Belmont and Adam Goodall, 31, from Brandon both recently leapt at the opportunity for career progression at believe housing by starting new roles as building surveyors.

Adam said: “I’ve worked as a gas engineer for 14 years, but I’ve always been interested in the building side of things.

“I’m keen to learn more, study, gain knowledge and better myself. Starting in a new role makes you nervous and excited, but you’ve got to go for.”

Martin, a former joiner, said: “I started as an apprentice in 1983, so the new role appealed to me after 33 years of tapping in nails.

“It’s a good job and very different from what I did previously; now I’m learning about all of the trades rather just concentrating on one.”

Group Director of Assets and Regeneration, Ged Walsh, said: “One of our key values at believe housing is ‘people first’, which applies as much to our employees as our customers.

“As a group we are committed to supporting people with career progression, and this is a fantastic example that it’s never too late to try something new.”
