A young woman from Maidenhead is certainly making her mark at a leading house builder after securing her second promotion in a matter of months.

“It’s very exciting. I’m really pleased that I made the move to Persimmon. It’s a great company to work for and I’m looking forward to the future. It’s a fantastic time to be involved in the construction industry because it is growing so rapidly.”
