Alan's thoughts on NHBC
How long have you been at NHBC?
I celebrated 25 years at NHBC in January 2016, having been made redundant from an Architectural practice in 1991.
What do you enjoy about working for NHBC?
I really enjoy the variety of work and advising clients on technical matters. In essence, solving the problems they’re experiencing. It can get extremely busy, but in my view NHBC is a great employer – a ‘large family’ all working together. Not only do they appreciate the effort put in by employees, they’re happy to change with the times and reflect the changing needs of their people.
How does the company support you?
They’ve also encouraged me to advance my knowledge and academic qualifications. In fact they’ve supported me throughout my 25 years here!
Would you recommend NHBC to others?
Here’s a simple question: Do you want a career or a job? If it’s a career, NHBC is the place for you!
What tasks do you carry out for the business?
As an experienced Chartered Surveyor, I’m the technical point of contact for advice and guidance on complex developments. One of the major ones on the go at the moment is the redevelopment of Newbury Racecourse – a large, high profile job that’s extremely interesting and challenging and one I am very proud of.
