One degree of celebration: how Anderson’s investing in talent
29 July 2021
An assistant site manager at Anderson has praised the company for helping fund his construction management degree.
Ross Jenner, who has worked for Anderson for just under four years, is now in the final year of his degree course.
“The company have been fantastic,” say Ross. “It feels they’re really investing in my future and I’m learning so much every day.”
The ambitious 26-year-old says he is looking forward to progressing within the company and has big plans for moving up the career ladder.
“I’d like to make my way up to site manager and eventually get into project management,” says Ross. “I love being on site and enjoy the day-to-day running of it.”
Ross is currently working at Anderson’s Faversham Lakes development in Kent, where 330 new homes are being built on the site of a former gunpowder factory and gravel works. The project, which will include 30% affordable homes, is being developed as a joint venture with ICG Longbow.
Ross says the development epitomises everything Anderson strives for: superb quality and a commitment to the very best in standards.
“I think we’ve built something we can be really proud of here in Faversham,” he adds. “The Anderson way is about good process and keeping standards high. This also relates to the contractors we work through. They understand the quality we’re looking for and push in that very same direction.”
