Gives her personal account of working at Foxtons.
I graduated in 2005 from Kingston University with a degree in Sociology and began my Foxtons career as an Office Co-ordinator in the Putney office. One of the best things about the role was that I was part of a fantastic office, helping to make it run smoothly. However, it also gave me the opportunity to experience the ins and outs of working in an estate agency, as well as a true insight into how all aspects of the business work together to make Foxtons successful.
After a year and a half of watching others doing the negotiating, I knew that I wanted to try it for myself and so I became a Lettings Negotiator at the Putney office. Having had an excellent grounding as an Office Co-ordinator I fell straight into the role, thoroughly enjoying being busy, the dynamic environment, client contact and the variety of never knowing what each day would bring.
What I love most about Foxtons is that hard work is rewarded and progression is encouraged; in 2007 after working as a Negotiator for a few months, I was offered a Valuer position in our new Dulwich office giving me an amazing opportunity to help build a new lettings department. Following the success of the department and a lot of hard work a year later I was promoted to the Lettings Manager before moving to our Marylebone office to help develop the lettings team there.
With all my years of experience working in lettings, I have now embarked on a new challenge joining our Training department where I can help support and guide our new people as they embark on their careers and share some of what I've learnt.
