Jim's 25 years on site with East Midlands

14 May 2021

Craftsman Jim Satchwell has racked up 25 years loyal service with our East Midlands region, and seen thousands of people happily into their new homes.

The carpenter is currently part of the customer care team at our Cardea development.  Jim’s colleagues at Persimmon Homes East Midlands have joined forces to mark his silver anniversary with a presentation.

East Midlands operations director Mark Dormer said: “We couldn’t let Jim’s 25 years with Persimmon go unrecognised. Everyone who has worked with him over the years has nothing but good words to speak of him. He is very much a go to person and is always willing to help and find a solution to any task thrown at him. In addition to his skills he is always cheerful and positive and he is well liked and respected by his colleagues and the thousands of customers who have crossed his path over his 25 years working on Persimmon developments in the region.”

Jim, who lives in, was presented with a bottle of malt whisky and a restaurant voucher as a token of appreciation. He said: “I had no idea this was going to happen and I am honoured to have been presented with these gifts. My wife Sue and I are celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary soon and we will enjoy using the restaurant voucher then.”

Jim, who lives in Doddington, Cambridgeshire, added: “I love my job and I know I have a reputation for seeing things through – Sue says because I am a Virgo I am too fussy – but I like to see things through to the end and I won’t leave a job until I am satisfied with it. I have made so many good friends from my colleagues on the sites over the years and I love meeting so many different customers. It’s great!”
