Estate agent to host recruitment evening for prospective employees

Connells estate agency today announces it will be holding a recruitment evening on Thursday 9 June between 6pm and 8pm at its head office in Leighton Buzzard. The well-known local agent is looking for up to 100 new employees for its Estate Agency Sales Centre, Connells’ first centralised centre to drive greater numbers of valuations for its branches and offer customers an out-of-hours contact centre.

“At a time of continued uncertainty in the jobs market, I am delighted that Connells is able to create up to 100 new jobs in the Bedfordshire area,” says Jon Evans, Divisional Managing Director for the new centre. “We will be holding a recruitment evening for all prospective employees on Thursday 9 June at Connells head office in Leighton Buzzard and are asking anyone who would like to attend to get in touch as soon as possible to reserve a place.”

In setting up its new Estate Agency Sales Centre, Connells is one of very few estate agencies with the capability to offer high-quality, out-of-hours advice to customers. “We are looking to create a remote estate agency centre which will service all of the Connells Group branches nationwide, so experience is beneficial but not essential as full training will be given,” Jon continues.

“This is an exciting new venture and I would urge anyone who is interested in our current vacancies and in attending the recruitment evening on Thursday 9 June to get in touch as soon as possible,” Jon says.

If you are interested in attending Connells recruitment evening and being considered for one of the current vacancies at its Estate Agency Sales Centre, please send your CV to David Martin at or call 01525 218528
