Winkworth introduces in-house recruitment department to help drive expansion

Winkworth Franchising Ltd is pleased to announce the introduction of a new in-house recruitment department, headed up by newly appointed head of recruitment, Lucy King.

This press release was originally posted in July 2017.

The appointment serves to enhance the company's offering to franchisees and provide them with a personal, efficient recruitment service to ensure high standards of employment throughout the offices and drive their future expansion.

Lucy has a wealth of knowledge of the industry, having started her career in 2005 in a front-line sales role and moving to property recruitment five years ago. Her experience places her in a strong position to identify and employ talented property professionals, and consequently support the development of Winkworth's franchise network.

Dominic Agace, CEO at Winkworth says: "I'm delighted to welcome Lucy to the company. She will play a vital role in supporting the growth of our network and I have no doubt her extensive experience both front and back of house will be a great asset to us."

Dominic continues: "Lucy's appointment is an important step for us to further enhance our offering to prospective franchisees. We work hard behind the scenes to provide our franchisees with an exceptional back of house function, so that they can concentrate on what they do best – helping people to buy and sell their homes. We're constantly on the lookout for talented individuals to join us, so if you like the idea of owning your own business with a fantastic support network behind you, contact us for more information."

Lucy adds: "This is an exciting time to join Winkworth and I'm thrilled to be a part of their network growth. As a franchised business, it's already evident that each office has its own identity with a real entrepreneurial spirit, and I look forward to identifying those who could be our franchisees and employees of the future."

Winkworth Franchising Ltd is a leading franchise estate agency with almost 100 offices in the UK. The company has opened three new franchised offices so far this year, and seeks to expand with further office openings throughout the rest of year. For more information on Winkworth's recruitment opportunities, contact Lucy King at lking@winkworth.com.
