When Alison Everett was looking at ideas for career development, she came up with the unusual and some might say, brave idea of secondment to Customer Services at our Chichester office. Alison had been with Hyde for 9 years and was keen to find out more about the wider business and contribute to making a hands on difference to people’s lives. Although her time at the “frontline” was challenging at times, Alison found it to be rewarding and empowering and would fully recommend the experience to others.
Following her return to Property Services, Alison applied for, and was successful in gaining a place in the very busy Resident Services Team as a Tenancy Advisor. During her secondment she gained a greater understanding of Hyde policies and procedures, housing and rent.
She is now completing a secondment working on Gas Safety Compliance as part of the Heating and Utilities Team. "I would recommend applying for a secondment in any team to help gain knowledge, increase skills and improve competencies”.
