I’m Will and I’m proud to be a part of the first Emerging Talent programme here at Places for People! 

One of the best experiences on the programme so far are the opportunities to connect and work with people from all over the business. Being part of such a well-established company and having a supportive Marketing team is really useful as it gives me the ability to develop the skills I need to progress through the early stages of my career.

Having worked with people from various backgrounds, I understand the real need to get people into good quality housing. If people feel they are valued in their own home, they will be able to lead better lives.

About me

  • Strong advocate for youth voice – I used to do a lot of youth democracy in my younger days! I’m now a trustee for the leading youth voice charity in the North West.
  • Before joining the programme I built websites and web apps for local businesses and charities in South Cumbria.
  • Graduated from Lancaster University with a BSc (Hons) in Business Management, and am currently based at our Group Support Centre in Preston.

"Being part of a growing and supportive team provides many great opportunities to develop my skills"
