Mark celebrates 14 years with BRC!


Business Manager Mark Grove is celebrating 14 years with BRC and over 20 years within the social housing sector. He has been reflecting on his career to date:


“I started with BRC in 2002 as a Consultant to set up the Social Housing division in the South West. It’s been a fantastic journey so far which has included periods spent working in all the BRC offices, from my base in our Head Office in Bristol, to Manchester, Southampton, and Cardiff. I’ve even been halfway around the world with a 7 month stint in the Sydney office, assisting with the launch of the Community Housing section over there. Our MD, Paul Howe, has always been 100% behind what I have been striving to achieve, and I’ve always had a great team to rely on with aspects such as back office support, payroll and IT support, along with a great team of consultants to bounce off of and to groan at my bad jokes! Now I work with a team in Bristol with my patch covering the Devon. Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset regions, with responsibility for all Housing Options / Homelessness roles in the South of England. No two days are the same, which keeps me on my toes, and I’m looking forwards to driving BRC to new levels as Business Manager for the Social Housing Management section across South West”
