Northampton homebuilder furthers career of sales employee

Leading developer David Wilson Homes South Midlands has rewarded one of its employees within the Northampton-based division with a promotion to Trainee Sales Manager.

Liz Burdge has taken her career to another level with a new role, having first joined David Wilson Homes in June 2011.

After working as a self-employed Law Cost Draftsman on behalf of multiple firms, she made a fresh start and began with the homebuilder as a Sales Adviser.

Liz, from Northampton, said:

“I’ve loved my job from day one and each day varies. Sometimes I’m onsite whereas others I might be in Head Office for meetings or conducting interviews with potential new staff members.

“What initially drew me to David Wilson Homes was its reputation. Even after speaking with my friends they agreed the company has the best reputation and this is reflected in the nine years as a five star housebuilder.

“Everyone has been very supportive and it’s a lovely team to work with. They’re respectful and they really care for you.”

Liz oversees the sales of three of the division’s developments; Radstone Fields in Brackley, The Gateway at Priors Hall Park in Corby and Eagles’ Rest in Milton Keynes.

Her responsibilities include looking after the running of the site and the team, as well as the releasing and pricing of houses.

Liz added:

“I still love being onsite and I really enjoy getting sales on the board.

“In the future I’d like to become a Sales Manager, progressing from a trainee.”

Jackie Day, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said:

“We’re delighted to see Liz progress with us and we wish her the very best in her new role as a Trainee Sales Manager.

“We pride ourselves on not only providing a high quality service for our customers, but also ensuring we look after our staff and provide opportunities for growth within the company to help our team achieve their ambitions.

“Our plans for future development are in place and now is a great time to be joining David Wilson Homes.”
