Helping a geography graduate map out his career

Tristan Snell: working with our Guildford region kickstarted the 22-year-old’s construction career

Tristan Snell: working with our Guildford region kickstarted the 22-year-old’s construction career

When Surrey 22-year-old Tristan Snell’s job plans stalled, he got our help to kickstart a career in housebuilding.

Tristan (22) now works as Graduate Land Buyer at our Guildford office which he hopes will be the launchpad to a successful career helping to meet the UK’s urgent need for new homes.

Tristan, who lives in Shepperton, Surrey, said: “I was not sure what I wanted to do until the second year at university whilst specialising in human geography. It was quite a natural path from that into housebuilding.

“Linden Homes were not advertising for graduate or trainee roles but I liked what I saw of the company; they’re a national business that design homes fitting with local areas, and this was a great attraction. I was open to any help they could offer – from work experience to a full time position.”

He sent in his CV to land director Kevin MacKenzie which led to a meeting and subsequently an interview with Linden Homes Guildford managing director Peter Youll. Linden Homes offered him a job.

Peter Youll said: “We all know how hard it can be to get your foot through the door of a professional company when starting your career, so we are dedicated to opening up opportunities for new talent in the industry whenever we can.”
