A HOUSEBUILDER has appointed its first ever female trainee site manager.
Samantha Lees, 21, has taken up the role at Bloor Home’s southern division.
She is currently based at the Laurel Grove development in Fareham and took the leap into the industry having previously worked as a care assistant.
She said: ‘I am very new to the building industry as I come from a completely different background but I think the skills I have already developed will help me in my new career choice.
‘It makes me proud to follow the steps of my father who runs his own bricklaying company and has taught me a huge amount about the business and the industry as a whole.
‘I have a clear vision of how I would like to progress with my career and develop my knowledge. My ambitions are to climb the ladder and one day become a site manager.
‘Bloor is a very open, friendly and prestigious company with a strong team ethos and I am delighted to have joined.
‘My experience so far has been nothing but fantastic, everyday I learn something new and feel like an integral part of the team.’
