Our drive to encourage talented young people into the construction industry has continued with the appointment of two new graduates.
Amy Gray (23), from Gateshead, has joined our North East region in a sales and marketing position, alongside Caitlin Morton (23), from Hartlepool, who is graduate development coordinator at a branch of our parent company, Galliford Try.
Amy said: “I have family that work in the construction industry and it has always been my ambition to do the same. I studied a four-year estate management degree course – which included a year placement at a commercial property consultancy – and had always envisaged that I would end up working on the development side.
“However, when I heard about the opportunity to work in a sales and marketing role with Linden Homes, I was excited to find out more and felt it was a position to which I could bring a lot.
“I had to learn about certain new aspects particular to the job but my degree has given me a good grounding in the industry and a transferable skill set that has enabled me to adapt to these new challenges.”
Over £133m has been committed by Linden Homes to improving local communities since 2010.
