Sarah Menhenitt has been with Allium right from the launch of the business; utilising her keen eye for detail, fantastic customer service skills and tireless work ethic she has been pivotal in the success of our social housing surveying division.
Social housing surveying is fast paced requiring the maintenance of strict key performance indicators to satisfy landlords, whilst always remembering that you are dealing with lay persons and surveying in their homes. A flexible approach to booking in projects around the working lives of the occupying tenants is the key to success and the ability to quickly turn around surveys in void properties ensures that homes are not left empty for extended periods.
Sarah is also studying for her AAT Level 3 qualifications at present and as part of her career progression within the business she is taking a more arm’s length role overseeing the social housing surveying operation and moving to join Nicki Hawkins in the Accounts team.
When asked about Allium, Sarah says:
I have thoroughly enjoyed running some of the business’ Key accounts over the past two and a half years but have always wanted to work in accounts. The Directors and Managers at Allium have been very supportive in my career progression, they recognised my commitment to the business and were impressed that I was studying for my accounting exams off my own back. Allium is a great place to work and they try to promote staff from within wherever possible which really gives you something to work towards.
