    Lee – Managing Director

    Our People

    lee-hawkerDuring his 14 year journey with Redrow, Lee has progressed from a graduate trainee to become South West Regional Director.

    In his new role Lee says he “enjoys the varied nature of the role and the ability to immediately make a genuine impact. The most challenging aspect is continuously looking ahead and anticipating issues. This is especially important at the moment in order to combat trade and material shortages”.

    “Redrow is fair and  forward thinking and it’s flat management structure means it can quickly adapt to change”.

    “I am proud to drive around our completed developments and know that not only have we built quality homes where families enjoy living but also knowing that we have achieved this the right way. Building in a safe and efficient manner and wherever possible using local labour and materials and making a real investment into the communities where we develop.”

  • This is also a very varied team. There aren’t many careers where being an architect, highway planner, structural engineer and interior designer are all in a day’s work.
    Paul – Technical Director

    Our People

    admin-ajaxAfter graduating in Civil Engineering with German from the University of Nottingham, Paul joined our graduate training programme in 1998. He says that one of the things he enjoyed most about the programme was the level of variety it offered.

    “One of the things that really stood out for me about Redrow was the fact that the graduate programme wasn’t just going to help me train to be a civil engineer. I was exposed to lots of different elements of the business. It was a great stepping stone from university to the world of work – I got to participate in some community-based projects too, which was really rewarding.

    “I’ve come a long way since then, and I’m looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead. I believe we have a product and site locations that are the envy of many of our competitors. We think about every last detail, and are passionate about quality. I’m very excited to be a part of Redrow’s ongoing success.”

  • Having moved through each of the six departments- it was definitely the right decision.
    Joshua – Land Negotiator

    Our People

    8645Josh joined on our Rotational Graduate Programme in September 2015, based in our Midlands Division. He heard about the opportunity at his University Careers Fair and was attracted by the opportunity to rotate around various departments.

    “I applied for the Graduate Scheme immediately after speaking to one of the existing graduates at my University Careers Fair. It was the opportunity to rotate around six key departments that attracted me to the role, as I knew it would give me a vital insight into our business.

    I’ve moved through each of the six departments now- and it was definitely the right decision. This has given me a vital insight into Land Acquisition, Engineering and Construction, as well as Commercial, Customer Service and Sales – all of which have helped me understand the processes involved at each stage of a residential development. It has allowed me to understand the role that each department plays in this process and how they all link together.”

  • I would definitely encourage anybody thinking of applying for a job at Redrow, it is a fantastic place to work.
    Sarah – Finance Director

    Our People

    Unknown-1Sarah became Finance Director of two Redrow housing divisions in 2011. She joined Redrow 10 years earlier after graduating from Keele University with a degree in Economics and Finance and began as a graduate trainee in the finance team at Redrow’s headquarters near Chester.

    Sarah said: “When I joined Redrow as a graduate trainee all those years ago, I hoped that one day I would be a director of the company; now that I am it is a fantastic feeling.

    “The graduate trainee programme was an excellent introduction to the business and gave me the opportunity to study for external qualifications – I’m now an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (ACMA) – as well as participating in a range of in-house training programmes. These included an excellent management course. It’s all helped to equip me for my new role.

    “I would definitely encourage anybody thinking of applying for a job at Redrow, it is a fantastic place to work and if you are prepared to put the effort in and work hard there is every opportunity for you to progress and build a career within the company.”
