University/ Degree: Glyndwr University, Wrexham; Construction Management
Hi I'm Benjamin and I’m a Graduate on the construction programme here at Redrow.
I used to work in roofing for a time however this was backbreakingly (thats a word right?) hard stuff and after a couple of years I decided that my body deserved better from me and I went to University to study construction management.
I spent a year with a smaller construction company following my graduation and gained some valuable experience however I felt I needed the support and culture of a larger company and a structured training plan. Redrow's graduate construction programme offered everything I wanted in this respect and I applied and was lucky enough to be successful in gaining employment in the North West division.
Outside of work I love travel and try to go abroad a few times a year. My significant other is cabin crew so I get some preferential travel arrangements.
My favourite destinations are the USA and Mexico where I've visited Las Vegas, Los Angeles, parts of Florida and Utah as well as Cancun (Coco bongos is amazing). I also love the Caribbean and in the future I really want to visit Rome and Budapest in Europe not to mention Cape Town in South Africa and a massive list of other places!
I also love sports and have a daughter who is playing for Manchester City Girls U12s. I try to keep myself in shape and go to the gym myself.
