I joined Oakworth Homes 6 years ago. It is memorable in more than one way. The 25th of June 2006 was not only my first day at a new company it was my daughter’s 12th birthday, today she is 18!!! How time flies. The other memorable point about that day was the horrendous floods around the country. The surrounding area was completely waterlogged with a lake where the car park had been!
On joining the Oakworth Homes team, I was part of a small family business consisting of 1 Production Operative in the factory, 1 Factory manager, The managing director, his wife in accounts, his father as Site Manager and myself to carry out reception and admin duties. Since that time we have grown beyond recognition. We have moved to a larger factory in Handsworth, Sheffield, our employees are currently 25 and I have attended 2 large NEC Shows over the past 2 years which showcased our ability to create a high spec timber framed solution to your building requirements.
My role has now progressed to Office Manager, which consists of overseeing reception and the admin team. The bustling reception is a hive of activity each day with all visitors, self builders and developers welcomed as a ‘friends we have not already met’ attitude. We are proud of our customer service and ability to deal with all queries great or small.
I’m confident I will be writing greater blogs in the future with the introduction of other services including offering self builders and developers a full turnkey option where upon we undertake the complete build, we are now also promoting to source and supply our customers the building materials for their project as well as supplying local building companies and merchants.
