Sewell Facilities Management grows from within

Yorkshire based Facilities Management company, Sewell Facilities Management, is growing its team after a successful 2022 so far, with new contract wins and being re-appointed to key frameworks.

Managing Director, Sean Henderson, is excited for what the future holds after several key promotions, new positions created, and a restructure of the business to help drive it forward. He said;

“Sewell Facilities Management has a long-standing reputation, which is testament to our team of highly skilled professionals, many of whom have worked for the business a long time.

“This year we have welcomed 12 new faces to the team, as well as promoting internally in key roles including Jayne Richmond as Customer Care Team Supervisor, and Andy Richardson, Mick Coxon, and Kevin Windsor who’ve all stepped up as Supervisors across our mechanical, electrical and mobile maintenance teams.

“A management trainee, customer care team administrator, and four apprentices also joined us, all of whom are already proving to be fantastic additions to the team out on the field. Two more of our Facilities Managers are in the process of undertaking their NEBOSH certifications to further support their career development, meaning the whole operational team will soon be qualified!

“As a business, we’re committed to investing in our people, retaining an expert workforce, and attracting the best talent to push the business forward and continue to deliver the award-winning, world class customer service Sewell Facilities Management is renowned for.”

It’s full steam ahead for the newly restructured team, as the business has also recently secured a brand-new client in Holistic Care Provision (HCP), who run two care homes in the region – Abbey Lea, a Grade II Listed care home, and Westwood in Selby.

This news also follows the recent launch of a new Projects team to supplement the already wide-ranging services delivered between Sewell Facilities Management and Sewell Construction.

Headed up by Facilities Operation Manager Jim Prest, this approach will enable the team to work more closely with their Construction colleagues to fulfil client’s requirements for smaller, reactive project works.

Jim is a natural link between FM and Construction, using his breadth of knowledge, expertise, and previous links with Construction to create more clarity to maximise cross-functional skills between the estates arm of the Sewell Group.

The company works across the North of England and the Midlands and is part of the Sewell Estates arm of the Sewell Group which delivers investments, developments, construction, and estates advisory for public and private sector companies.
