Redrow Homes, the multi-award-winning housebuilder that completes around 5,000 homes a year across England and Wales, has named Craig Watts as its Sales Consultant of the Year in the East Midlands region.
Watts is 28-years-old and works at Knights Keep, the company’s development of three- and four-bedroom homes in Stretton, Burton upon Trent, and has been rewarded for his “unwavering enthusiasm and determination to find the perfect home for residents across the East Midlands” and the high level of customer service he provides onsite.

The award winner’s career has been a diverse one before joining Redrow a year ago, starting with Drama and Religious Studies at the University of Kent, and then jobs in exports administration, before taking a role in sales industry. As part of his continuing career progress he is currently working towards a qualification with the Institute of Sales Management.
Watts says: “I’m thrilled that my hard work has paid off, I was pleased just to be nominated, let alone win! It’s fantastic to be recognised so early on in my career at Redrow, and I would like to thank my supportive co-workers who help me to do my best every day.”
Mary Timlin, sales director for Redrow Homes East Midlands, is delighted that he has made such a speedy impact in the job, saying: “Despite his short time in this industry, he understands the importance of creating thriving communities, lives and breathes Redrow’s values, and is eager to learn and grow in his role. Well done, Craig!”
Redrow has a highly respected position in the housebuilding careers industry for recruitment, training and nurturing of staff. From apprentice level to graduates, Redrow is making considerable efforts in recruiting the right people to match its ambitions and, as with Craig Watts, rewarding the best at their job.
Redrow’s national HR director, Karen Jones, heads the championing of staff and tackling the industry’s skills shortage, recently on one of the panels at the WhatHouse? New Homes Debate on careers and talking to us last year about equal opportunities for women in housebuilding.
