Oldham site manager scoops top building industry award

Award-winner Jake Green

A site manager from Oldham has picked up an award for his outstanding work on new homes in Cheshire.

Jake Green was awarded a coveted ‘Seal of Excellence’ from the National House-Building Council (NHBC) at the highly respected Pride in the Job Awards for his work at Redrow’s Tabley Park development in Knutsford.

Established by NHBC, the Pride in the Job Awards celebrate the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality. 

Pride in the Job, first launched over 40 years ago, is the most highly regarded competition in the house-building industry. 

Earlier in the year Jake won an NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award, reserved for just the top 450 site managers in the country, chosen from a field of over 11,000.

He then went on to compete for the Seal of Excellence and was one of just 94 people to be given the coveted accolade.

It’s been a busy year for Jake, who was also named Redrow’s NW site manager of the year.

Jake has worked for Redrow for the past five years, after starting its graduate scheme in 2017.

After his managers spotted his potential, the father-of-two was taken off what should have been a two-year training programme and fast tracked to a promotion after just 11 months.

He was given the role of assistant site manager at 23 and his own site to finish off at Mulberry Park in Macclesfield.

From there he went to Cranberry Gardens in Congleton before being made site manager at Tabley Park.

“I am delighted to receive this accolade after only starting with Redrow as a trainee five years ago,” said Jake.

“I cannot thank my team and everyone around me enough who have helped develop me into a site manager over the last five years and have also contributed to this Seal of Excellence win.”

Phil Reeves, construction director for Redrow’s Northwest division, said: “Congratulations to Jake on his Seal of Excellence Award, which is well deserved.

“Jake always puts in 100% and is a great asset to us here at Redrow.

“He is setting a real example for his peers with his attention to detail, and the homes at Tabley Park reflect the care and quality of his work, and that of his team on site.”

The national Supreme Award winners will be unveiled in January, 2023.
