A sales advisor with a leading housebuilder is experiencing a rapid rise through the ranks and is now running his own site in Uxbridge.
Edgar da Silva, 24, only joined Persimmon Homes North London on a temporary contact in November, but has already gained a full-time position as a sales advisor.
Barnet-based Edgar has praised the level of training he has received from the housebuilder, after originally joining the business as a trainee at St Andrews Park in Uxbridge.
His career with the business is certainly different from his original ambitions. Edgar qualified from Stanmore College with a diploma in sports science, before studying a sports rehabilitation course at Middlesex University.
After deciding to pursue a different career, Edgar has praised Persimmon Homes for the opportunity he has been given.
He said: “I realised that university wasn’t for me and decided to pursue a career in real estate and then sales with Persimmon. I’m so glad I decided to make a change and can’t thank Persimmon enough for the help they’ve given me.
“Training with the company has been very beneficial. During my time as a trainee I worked on a foundation pack with lots of different modules to help me be the best sales advisor possible. I’ve also had a regional training officer come to the site to observe me and I’ve learned so much.”
Ambitious Edgar is now looking ahead to the future and to keep progressing through the business.
He continued: “I want to keep improving, but further in the future I would love to progress into a management position.
“It’s important for me to give a high level of customer service. Seeing the homeowner’s journey through from viewing to completion is so fulfilling for me.”
Persimmon Homes St Andrews Park is located less than a mile from Uxbridge tube station offering residents easy access into central London in under an hour. Road connections into London and beyond are excellent via the M40 & M25.
