Freddie Wade has been promoted to the position of Contracts Manager at its South East branch in Ringmer, East Sussex.
22-year-old Freddie joined the company three and a half years ago as a Trainee Contracts Manager and has worked his way up after becoming an Assistant Contracts Manager and achieving an Institute of Roofing ‘Management and Technician’ qualification.
Freddie works as part of a team of three based at the Ringmer branch and is responsible for managing the delivery of roofing projects in the South East region for the specialist roof, slate and tile contactor, which works with most of the UK’s largest housebuilders.
Freddie commented: “I’m absolutely delighted to get this opportunity and that Bracknell Roofing have recognised my potential as a trainee and have invested in me at every stage of my career development, and I’m delighted to become a Contracts Manager.”
He is also looking forward to the additional responsibility that comes with his new position. He went on to say: “I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside Regional Director Chris Beech, who has given me the benefit of his experience – which is invaluable in developing my skills and experience to meet the demands of working on some of the largest roofing contracts in the South East area.”
The keen amateur athlete from Ringmer has hit the ground running in his new role managing half a dozen current contracts, with a couple more lined up. He is responsible for quoting for new projects, managing teams onsite, ordering the materials for each project and ensuring each project delivers a profit.
Bracknell Roofing’s Divisional Director Simon Smith has been impressed with Freddie’s progress within the business and commented: “Freddie has shown great maturity, and we are confident he will grow into the new role.”
“Freddie has demonstrated a great aptitude for contracts management, and our business is very keen to invest in the next generation of young people coming into the roofing industry.”
“Our business has high hopes for Freddie, and he’s a great example to other young people that roofing can be a rewarding career with lots of prospects and opportunities.”
