A number of colleagues at Platform have had their hard work recognised with a series of promotions.

Platform Property Care – a subsidiary of Platform Housing Group – has promoted eight members of staff recently.

Matt Stock has been promoted from Grounds Maintenance Crew Leader to Grounds Maintenance Delivery Manager; Mel Bellingham from Caretaking Supervisor to Estates Delivery Manager; Adam Eccleston from Caretaker to Estates Supervisor; and Robert Krzyzanski, Joe Onslow, Dave Boulton, Josef Hooper and Tom Andrews from Grounds Maintenance Operatives to Grounds Maintenance Crew Leaders.

Nicola Chamberlain, Head of Estates at Platform Housing Group said : “Our Estate Services team are going through a period of growth to support our vision to make positive differences to our communal areas and green spaces.  At the same time we have been awarded the contract to deliver Stonewater’s grounds maintenance service and an enhanced service to Rooftop Housing.  This expansion has enabled us to promote some of our home grown talent, recognising hard work and loyalty and providing opportunities for development.”

Matt Stock, one of the newly promoted colleagues said: “I am so excited about this opportunity; I feel I am now in a position to make a real difference to my colleagues and customers in my new role.  I feel proud to say I am a manager at Platform Housing Group.”

Simon Harris, Grounds Maintenance Operations Manager at Platform Housing Group said : “The best way to secure our future is to grow our own talent and invest in people that have the potential to build a long term career within our business.  Developing our workforce helps us to continue to deliver services to our customers tailored to their needs.  It also helps us with succession planning and, importantly, offering roles to people when job security is much needed.  Team members need to be customer focused, methodical and thorough.  These skills – and many more besides – are all in abundance in these eight colleagues and we are delighted to be part of their stories; we wish them long and successful careers!”
