Promotion for Helen Sime at Connells Lettings
19 December 2011
Connells Lettings is delighted to announce the promotion of Helen Sime to the position of Training Partner.
Helen takes on the new role after just 18 months with Connells Lettings and brings a wealth of experience to its growing national network of branches.
Based in Connells’ Lettings Support Centre in Maidstone, Helen has worked within the Connells Group for almost five years. With experience both at branch level and working alongside central support and training functions, Helen’s promotion is based on her work within the training and development team as well as her input in growing the number of Connells Lettings offices by 109 per cent over the last year.
“I am very excited about taking on the role of Training Partner, especially at such an exciting time in Connells Lettings growth,” says Helen. “Our national network of lettings branches continues to grow. Our central support team is dedicated to providing market leading training in lettings and property management so our staff in the branches can provide an excellent standard of service to landlords and tenants.”
Helen’s new role will focus heavily on supporting branches with lettings issues and ensuring agents are highly trained in Connells’ own procedures and standards of compliance. She is a member of ARLA and holds the Technical Award in Lettings and Property Management.
“2012 is gearing up to be another great year for Connells Lettings,” Helen continues. “We will continue to expand the network and, alongside our award-winning sales branches, help even more landlords and tenants in the New Year.”
