Newett Homes announces charity of the year

Newett Homes is proud to announce its partnership with The Sick Children’s Trust as its official Charity of the Year for 2023. The collaboration aims to support the vital work of The Sick Children’s Trust in providing ‘home from home’ accommodation and emotional support for families with critically ill children receiving treatment at hospitals across the country.

With ten homes located near major paediatric hospitals, the charity ensures that families can stay together during their child’s treatment, providing them with a comforting and supportive environment just moments away from their child’s bedside.

Through this partnership, Newett Homes will actively participate in various fundraising initiatives, community events, and volunteer activities to raise vital funds and awareness for The Sick Children’s Trust, ensuring that more families can benefit from its invaluable services.

“We are absolutely thrilled that Newett Homes has named The Sick Children’s Trust as their charity partner.” Said Charlotte Webster, Corporate Partnerships Manager at The Sick Children’s Trust .

“Our staff, not only at our Eckersley House ‘Home from Home’ in Leeds but across the whole charity, are delighted. We are really looking forward to working with them to raise both awareness and funds for our charity, allowing us to continue supporting families with a seriously ill child in hospital with a warm and welcoming place to stay, alleviating their financial worries and helping their mental wellbeing. A big thank you to everyone at Newett Homes for supporting us.”

To kickstart the partnership, some of the Newett Homes team visited Eckersley House in Leeds, one of the ten homes managed by the charity, to see first-hand the care and support they provide the families of children receiving intensive care from Leeds Children’s Hospital.

The Newett Homes team cooked up a storm, preparing some delicious baked goods for the families to enjoy when they returned home from the hospital, and donating Tupperware to the home to enable families to return to the ward with their food, allowing them to be at their child’s bedside.

 

Michael Cheng, Design Manager at Newett Homes knows first-hand the impact The Sick Children’s Trust have on families.

On a personal level, I am delighted Newett Homes have chosen the The Sick Children’s Trust to support in 2023, as it is a charity that have supported my family this year through some very challenging times.

We were delighted to be invited to Eckersley House by The Sick Children’s Trust to bake some goodies for the families currently living in the accommodation. The baking was a success, and we hope it went a little way to make the day easier for the families. It was also fantastic to meet the wonderful staff who do amazing things to support the families and ensure they have home away from home.”

Newett Homes next fundraising event will be held on Friday 21st July at Cookridge Hall Golf Club where eighteen teams will compete for the winning title.

 

Women in Construction: Interview with Esther

Today is International Women’s Day, a global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.

There is still a major gender imbalance within the construction industry with women making up just 16% of the workforce. That’s why as a business, we’re committed to improving gender equality in all levels of seniority at Newett Homes to encourage women to join the construction community.

At Newett Homes we’re proud to have a higher-than-average proportion of women as part of our workforce; 33% of our staff and 40% of our site management team.

This year, the theme for International Women’s Day is to embrace equity. Getting the world talking about why equal opportunities aren’t enough. “People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.”

Esther is one of our site managers here at Newett Homes. As part of International Women’s Day we interviewed her about her experience within the industry, what she enjoys the most about her job and her advice to other women considering the construction industry.

What was your first role in the property industry?

I was very lucky to start straight in as an Assistant Site Manager 9 years ago. I worked hard and was promoted to Site Manager within 5 years.

Why did you choose property and construction as a career?

I have always wanted to work within construction, and I knew Newett Homes had a positive reputation of supporting female construction workers with their development and goals. I knew Newett Homes was the company I wanted to join and they could give me the help I needed to progress my career within construction.

What are your day-to-day responsibilities here at Newett Homes?

No day is the same on-site! It can vary from. It can vary from meetings with the local council or discussing road works to customer visits, seeing their new home progressing. From making sure all the guys are safe and sound on-site to checking all the works against drawings and for quality. The list goes on and on.

What attracted you to Newett Homes?

I wanted to work for a company that built luxury into their homes and enabled you as a site manager to focus on quality. The day you hand the keys to a customer is the moment that makes all the effort and hard work as a Site Manager worthwhile. I knew Newett Homes would give me everything I need so that when it comes to a customer move-in day, I can proudly stand in front of the customer and present their beautiful new home to them and see the beaming smiles on their faces.

What do you enjoy most about your job role?

No two days are the same and there is something new to learn every single day. I also enjoy creating a safe and happy site environment where people want to come, work hard and give you their best.

Do you feel that the industry is encouraging more women to get into construction?

I think it’s about celebrating days like today and making it known that there are women within construction, it’s not a man’s world, at all. It all helps to make it a little less scary or intimidating for other women to come and give it ago.

Why would you recommend a career in construction to women?

It’s hard work but it is so rewarding. The pride I feel when I drive past a completed development I’ve worked on and tell anyone that will listen that I helped build that. It’s a priceless feeling.

What advice would you give to women who are looking at a career in construction?

Go for it. Get on-site, spend time with everyone and sponge in all their experience and knowledge from them. Have a laugh and enjoy every day.

 

At Newett Homes, we’re ambitious. We’ve always got plans to improve, develop and grow our business and it’s our people who help make it happen. If you’re thinking of a career in construction or taking your next step, take a look at our careers page – https://newetthomes.co.uk/careers/
