Our Success Stories
We pride ourselves on our successful track record of promoting our people from within wherever possible. Here are some of their stories:
General Manager, Nizels Golf and Country Club
I joined The Essex in July 1995 as a trainee golf professional, based in the club and driving range desk. This was a great opportunity to work in the golfing environment, a game I have played and loved all my life.
In January 2000 I joined the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) as a trainee on the diploma scheme. That same year The Club Company purchased The Essex, which was when my career really kick started.
I was soon promoted to Retail Manager, which was perfect for my attention to detail and kept me customer facing, which is what I enjoy most. This naturally allowed me to progress to my next promotion as Golf Operations Manager. This gave me the chance of running a team as well as the financial responsibility of working to budgets.
In September 2004, I was promoted to General Manager at Benton Hall. At the time it was only a golf club so was the perfect place to “cut my teeth”. Within a year, work had commenced on the country club. This was an amazing experience from seeing the building coming out of the ground to pre-selling memberships and recruiting a new team. The icing on the cake was winning the Flame award at the National Health & Fitness awards. We were the first club in the group to do so and followed it up only a year later with another win!
From here I moved north to The Tytherington Club as General Manager in early 2009. This was a different challenge as it was an established club that had recently had a large investment. I could not have enjoyed it more! Living and working in a different area opened my eyes, and I quickly learnt that different areas have different requirements!
My 2 ½ years there flew by and before I knew it I was back at The Essex, the place where it all began, but this time as General Manager. This was a different challenge once again with a large Tennis Club and the small matter of a 42 bedroom hotel!
On the move again. In November 2015 I was appointed General Manager at Nizels Golf and Country Club where my efforts will continue to make the club one of the best in the country.
General Manager, Benton Hall Golf and Country Club
I joined Benton Hall Golf & Country Club in August 2006 as Food & Beverage Manager (maternity cover). I instantly loved the club and the feel of the place. The health club had only been open 6 months and the team made me very welcome. The role became a full time one and I was there until March 2009 when I had the opportunity to progress with the company, moving to The Tytherington Club in Macclesfield as Food & Beverage Manager. Their F&B department was double the size and held regular weddings and conferences - something that was new to me but was a great experience. I had only ever lived in Essex so this was a big change in my life but I loved the new challenge.
Unfortunately due to losing my sister very unexpectedly whilst living in the north I decided I wanted to be closer to home. The Club Company were very understanding through this time and when a vacancy arose at Castle Royle Golf & Country Club as Health Club Manager I jumped at the chance and started in May 2010. Although commuting from Essex to Reading on a daily basis was tiring, I thoroughly enjoyed my new role. It was a new learning curve as I now managed the health club building and all that went with it.
After 18 months, the role of Food & Beverage manager came up at Nizels Golf & Country Club, which I started in October 2011 ready for the Christmas Party season. I was keen to build a great team and enjoyed being involved in the day-to-day bar and food service again, as well as running events at the club. Then, unexpectedly, the position of General Manager at The Club at Mapledurham was advertised - my dream job! I quickly threw my cap in the ring and before I knew it I was living in Reading and running my very own club. I couldn't have been happier! I was quickly accepted by the members and staff and built a successful team around me. I got involved with golfing competitions, gained a handicap and played in the evenings.
After nearly 4 years at Mapledurham I was ready for a new challenge and moved back to Benton Hall as General Manager at the club where I started out – the very place that I had decided I wanted to be the manager of one day! And now, after 3 years of being the manager that I dreamt of being, I am about to embark on a brand new challenge with my first baby due in October 2018. I will return in 2019 after my maternity leave.
The Club Company is a huge part of my life and has been for the last 12 years. Since joining on a short-term contract I have worked at 5 of the 13 sites, recruited trained and developed many staff into management roles, taken up golf and made some friends for life!
