LEADING five star housebuilder Barratt Mercia has responded to a growth in business and demand for its new homes in the Midlands by appointing Gemma Bretherton as the latest participant of its Graduate Development Programme.
The two year Graduate Development Programme has been a great success for the housebuilder, with previous graduate Marianne Horton, who started in 2010, recently being appointed as Land Manager.
New graduate Gemma (24) joins the team having moved from Liverpool where she had been working for Barratt Homes as a Greeter and then a Sales Adviser for over seven years.
Gemma said: “The graduate scheme is great because it gives you the best experience in every department so I can figure out what area of the business I’m most interested in. I am a sales graduate so I will probably go back into sales once I’ve finished with the dream of becoming a Sales Manager in the future.”
