So Paul, tell us a bit about your day to day activity…
My day always starts the same but never ends the same! I like to start very early so that I can walk around the site without any disruptions to see what areas may need more attention than others. At 7.45am, I hold a team meeting, so everyone knows what is expected of the day.
Once the team meeting is done, I begin my day of juggling multiple tasks. When I’m not looking at on-site presentation and forecasting, meeting with customers, working with the sales team or the day to day management of subcontractors, then I can take a look at my to do list and see if I can tick any actions off!
What do you like best about working for Countryside?
I was drawn to the family-like culture that has been passed down from the original family run business. All the departments run as one and we’re all working towards the same goals. As we grow as a company our director’s want the staff to grow with them.
Can you tell us some information about the current projects you’re working on?
Currently I am working at Kings Park in Harold Wood, which has over 900 homes. We are now coming to the final few phases, which includes a mixture of apartments and houses. I feel very lucky to have been involved at every stage of this development. Walking around the development at this point it’s clear to see that Countryside don’t just build houses, we create communities and it’s very rewarding to be a part of that.
Do you have any projects that you have particularly enjoyed working on?
I have worked on many developments during my eighteen years at Countryside. One that springs to mind is St Cedd’s Place in Chelmsford, which was a very small site that had fourteen large houses. It was surrounded by an existing residential area, and after a while I was on a first name basis with most of the people that lived there. It was great to see that they were happy with the work that we were doing and were very happy to welcome the team and the new residents into their warming community.
