Multi-award-winning social care property consultancy, Carterwood
, has been honoured as one of the ‘Best Places to Work in Property’, at the prestigious national Property Week awards. Overcoming tough competition from some of the biggest property giants in the industry, Carterwood won two of the eight award categories: ‘leadership and planning’ and ‘relationship with supervisor’.
This is the first year that Carterwood has entered the awards, which are run by Best Companies Group and dedicated to finding and recognising the best employers in the property industry. A total of 52 companies made the national shortlist.
Category winners were decided based on results from a comprehensive staff survey, which questioned business performance across areas including work/life balance, wellness initiatives, training and career development, and corporate culture and communications.
Commenting on the achievement, Carterwood co-founder and director, Amanda Nurse said: “Running the business with Ben Hartley over the last 10 years has been full of wonderfully proud moments, but none more so than winning two awards at the Property Week ‘Best Places to Work in Property’ awards.
“Our senior management team works so hard to ensure everyone is treated as an individual and has the opportunity to do work they love. The feedback from the staff survey shows we are going in the right direction. The comments made by staff about Carterwood were amazing, and it’s such a privilege to work with such a bright and capable team, who challenge Ben and myself – in a good way – every single day. We wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Carterwood runs an annual recruitment programme for students and graduates. It is also currently recruiting an IT manager and financial controller. Applications for both vacancies close Thursday 8 March.
