As a business built largely on acquisition, we have an array of properties and people, whilst many of our teams didn’t choose to come and work here, they do choose whether or not to stay and we’re confident we’re building a business that attracts talent from a variety of sectors and backgrounds, further diversifying the team in place. In little more than 12 months, we’ve built a complete HQ team, armed with little more than a Job Description and we think that’s testament to the experience candidates received when meeting with our team; a team of passionate, talented, like-minded individuals, who embrace the culture we’re seeking to build. Whether our properties were acquired from others or developed by ourselves, we’re excited about the positive changes we can bring to both the physical aspects of the property and the experience within it for our residents. We have, and continue to, invest in exciting, capital programmes, driving value for our residents, the people who work there and our investors. We look to our residents and property Team Members to help us better our understanding of the use of space; recognising those closest to the customer often know best. We’re big on retention here, both of our residents and our people. We offer brilliantly located properties in major University towns and cities, well-priced and equipped with all the amenities and services our residents need to thrive whilst at University. And for our people; providing welcoming work environments, interesting roles, competitive pay and benefits that matter to the individual. We’re starting to build out our Learning & Development framework too, so whilst the rewards should be there for everyone today, the real riches are in the long-term careers we can eventually offer. We’re putting major efforts into building a brand and an organisation that people want to work for and we think our greatest days are still ahead of us.
