Business Development Manager
After only 4 years working at Bennet Landscapes, it’s incredible to have so much to show for myself and my time here. I was brand new to the landscaping industry, and now I’m the one responsible for growing the business. I always value new perspectives and love to communicate with my team members to work at achieving our goals.
10 years ago, I started off as a landscaping technician with Bennett Landscapes. I’m now a deputy manager, but I still get to work out on the field. I have a lot more responsibilities, and the prospective career progression in my job keeps me satisfied and pushing for greatness, ensuring I always offer the very best version of me. I’m so honoured to have had the chance to grow alongside the company.
I always look forward to coming to work. Not many people can say that after 15 years in the same business, but I genuinely love what I do. I spend a lot of time out in the field and am always gaining new experience to progress my career with. Witnessing the company grow has brought a lot of satisfaction and Bennett Landscapes truly deserves all the success.
The progression and opportunities for career development are integral to the way our company works, and it’s a really good example of the value and importance Bennetts will always place on its staff. We’re all expected to help each other out as we recognise the importance of seeing things from different perspectives. Getting to work as a Contracts Manager when I started as a Team Leader proves that I’ve had an enhanced career advancement that I wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else.
We’re certainly akin to a big family here at Bennett Landscapes, I feel really lucky to be part of such a great, supportive team. 9 years of maintaining all the machines has allowed me to have a vast database of knowledge and always be prepared to step in when there is a problem on and off-site. A lot of maintenance workers say they only need their toolkit to get their job done, but at work, I get – and give – so much more than that.
Working at Bennett Landscapes has improved my confidence and given me new skills that I can apply throughout my future career. My work experience has been invaluable, and I’ve loved every moment. I’m honoured to work alongside Matt and Lorraine knowing that they will always help me if I need it, and there’s always someone in the office ready to answer my questions. I’ve loved learning more and more about the industry in a team that really does care.
Not a lot of mathematicians can proudly proclaim they enjoy work, but as I’ve grown alongside the company I can’t help but love every day that comes along. I look after the sales and purchase ledgers as well as all the payrolls to make sure they are flawless. My tasks have increased as the business has expanded, but the supportive team around me means I never feel like I’m working alone. If I need a second pair of eyes, there’s always someone around willing to help.
My managers have always encouraged me to grow my skill set by providing me with constant, thoughtful feedback and new ideas. This has helped me further my career and guided me towards becoming a registered accountant. I’ve only been working at Bennett Landscapes for four months, but the support they have shown to this new employee has been immeasurable. I was warmly welcomed by the Managing Director himself on my first day, and have experienced the importance placed on teamwork every day since.
With any job, the need to adapt and improvise is critical. Being Office Manager means that every day will be completely different from the one before, but the constantly changing environment has always been something I’ve enjoyed. I love tackling different tasks, from organising the arrival of an important visitor to organising reward outings for my colleagues.
Contract Manager & Training Officer
Every day is different at Bennett Landscapes. I’ve been here for 10 years and never feel like my job is getting repetitive. I make sure work is completed within budget and on time and that comes with its own challenges, which I enjoy tackling with my fellow team members. I am so grateful that I’ve been able to work my way up in the company, always rewarded for my hard work and dedication.
