A number of people have joined our company in recent weeks
As a leading estate agency, Pygott and Crone is always on the lookout for fresh talent to help us maintain our high standards of service, both in our High Street branches and our teams behind the scenes. We are pleased to announce that we have recruited a number of people in recent weeks.
Having established our own digital and print marketing department in 2015 we are pleased to welcome two new designers to the team; Agne Paskeviciute and Sam Donner, both recent graduates from the University of Lincoln. Agne and Sam have hit the ground running and are working on a number of new projects as well as working with our web developer Mike Cartwright to refine and develop Pygott Plus, our recently launched online customer portal.
Agne commented “I am very excited to dive into my first design role at Pygott & Crone and see how my contributions help with the progression and expansion of the company’s graphic and digital media. Sam added “I am pleased to work for such a well-recognised brand in Lincolnshire, and I’m looking forward to working with the team”.
Kevin Scrupps, director, commented “I am delighted to welcome Agne and Sam to the team, we had a number of applicants for the position and their portfolios stood out. We have significantly invested in our marketing team in recent years, bringing a number of services and capabilities in-house. I am pleased to see the team grow and continue to develop our business. It is nice to give opportunities to local graduates and gives our estate agency a distinct advantage as we are able to react quickly to changing trends in the industry and produce superior, high quality marketing materials – which can only benefit our customers.”
The marketing team offers a diverse range of abilities and services, including website development, design for print and web; social media marketing, copywriting, illustration, photography, video, image processing, animation, and SEO. We use a range of technology to produce high quality work for our frontline services, our customers, and external clients such as property developers and industry suppliers.
We are also pleased to welcome Joe Padgett to our central customer service team here at Sleaford HQ. The team works from 9am to 9pm to support our High Street branches and our core services; including handling enquiries through telephone, email, and live chat. Emma Shaw, customer service manager, commented “I am pleased to welcome Joe to my team, he will help us maintain our high standards of customer service, answering your enquiries by telephone, email, and live chat as part of our 24/7 service; and I look forward to working with him”.
Our mortgage and protection department is also evolving as Will Collings has joined the team after 12 years working at Natwest. He joins John Scarth who recently joined the company as an mortgage and protection advisor. We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Kelly Whitton for passing her CeMap qualification. Ahmed Jlil, financial services director, commented “I am really pleased to see our team grow with not only external but internal customer-focussed candidates. We now have the capability to offer not only mortgage and protection advice, but also equity release advice.”
L-R: Sam, Agne, Joe, Will, John
