Having climbed the career ladder with Barratt Homes, a former apprentice is celebrating after landing the role as a Site Manager at the housebuilder’s Highfields development in Littleover.
Ryan Taylor (23) has been with the leading developer for six years having first enrolled as a Carpentry and Joinery Apprentice, and has now worked through the ranks to take charge of his own site in Derbyshire.
He’s taken on the roles of Trainee and Assistant Site Manager previously and is now relishing the responsibility of overseeing the works at Highfields.
Ryan, from Sheffield, said: “It’s great to have worked my way up with such a renowned company and I’m really enjoying the extra responsibility that comes with being a Site Manager.
“I’m now overseeing the whole project and I’ll conduct the necessary health and safety checks, ensuring there are still high levels of customer satisfaction and making certain the houses are built to a high standard.
“I’ve managed to meet the benchmarks I’ve set for myself so far and I’d like to be a Contracts Manager by the time I’m 30.”
Having previously only witnessed smaller aspects of the project, Ryan is now able to see the construction through from start to finish.
He added: “To have progressed this far with a five star builder is fantastic and I can’t praise the career opportunities of Barratt Homes highly enough.”
Chris Southgate, Managing Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “It’s been excellent seeing Ryan’s progression with the company first hand and I am sure Ryan will continue to maintain our good track record of customer satisfaction at Highfields.
“As a leading housebuilder in Derbyshire, we pride ourselves on not only providing a first-class service for our customers, but also ensuring we look after our employees and provide opportunities to progress within the company and achieve their ambitions.”
