Kitty, Lettings Consultant
“After leaving college at the age of 18 I was lucky enough to get an opportunity to join Townends and for a first job, going into such a big company that has so many new opportunities to offer it was so exciting! Now, over a year down the line, I am working with an amazing team in such a busy up and coming area which has me excited for work every day. Townends are the most supportive company and they have your happiness in mind all the time, with constant ways to improve and making it better for everyone who works here. I couldn’t recommend them enough and I’m so excited to see what the future hold for them!”
Arran, Property Manager
“I’ve been within the Property Management industry just short of 2 years covering the London area, originally working with another large agent, however I felt that my progression had stalled and made the decision to find another agent that prioritises personal development and is experiencing large amounts of growth. From my initial interview with Townends, I was blown away with the company’s core beliefs and plans for the short and long-term, they immediately became my employer of choice, amongst other roles I had interviewed for. Fortunately, Townends offered me a position in the Property Management team and since joining, they have exceeded my expectations.
Townends are transparent with their employees and are empathetic to individual concerns and requests. My message to anyone interested in joining Townends; you’d be joining a fantastic company that are going from strength to strength, but on a personal level they’ll support you and help drive you towards the direction you want to go.”
Tom, Acting Operations Manager
“My career started in leisure, but I always had an interest in property. However, I knew that I didn’t want to be an estate agent. After speaking with the recruitment team, I quickly realised that there was more to do here then just sales and lettings. I was really impressed by the setup of the company and was employed in a role at head office. Since joining, I have had various training and development plans put in place and have been able to grow my skillset and knowledge. It is encouraging to see so many people work their way up to senior positions and I have been able to move myself up in an industry that not long ago, I had little knowledge about. NDA is a great company to work for and they do reward people who put in the effort and commitment. Since I have been here, the company has evolved massively, moving to a much bigger premises, expanding its portfolio and additionally its headcount.”
David, Associate Director
“After working in the lettings industry for over 14 years with the same employer I wanted a change to improve my work/life balance for my family and a chance to better my career to meet my own personal ambitions. Catherine Darbon stayed in touch with me after I interviewed with her and made it clear she would be keen to get me on board but needed to find the right role for me and I understood the timing needed to be right for both of us. Upon meeting the NDA team, I was very impressed with the acquisition plan and where they wanted the company to get to. I was offered a very good package and I accepted without hesitation. Since starting in June 2018 Nick Dunning Associates have exceeded both what they promised and my expectations. They’ve encouraged my development and progression, celebrated my success and rewarded me at every step. I am surrounded by positive people with a great mentality and a ‘can do’ attitude. I have every confidence that my career here will continue to flourish and that the company will continue to expand, I’m only sorry I didn’t get on board sooner!”
Natalie, Branch Support Manager
“I first joined the company 16 years ago as a lettings negotiator. My career path changed over the years to the administrative side and I now run the central branch support team based at our head office in Byfleet. I also met my husband whilst working at the company! I have seen many changes over the years but lots of particularly positive ones in the last two years since the company changed ownership and I can’t imagine working anywhere else.”
