Blayze Group Presents Team Prize at Property Awards

Blayze Group - the specialist property and construction recruitment consultancy - was delighted to attend the Insider North West Residential Property Awards at the Midland Hotel in Manchester on 27th January 2016.

Recognising the importance of the contribution of the residential sector to the property industry in the North West, this was the inaugural year of the Insider North West Residential Property Awards.

With over 460 property professionals in attendance at this lively and entertaining event, the Insider North West Residential Property Awards are sure to become a regular fixture in the region.

All the region's major players in the residential sector were in attendance and it was a great opportunity to meet up and celebrate with the teams from Redrow, Galliford Try, JLL, Urban Splash, Elan Homes, Deloitte and Select Property Group among others.

As the sponsor of the Best Public Sector Team award, Blayze Group's Associate Director in Manchester - Laura Padgett - was pleased to present the Award to Deborah McLaughlin, Chief Executive of Manchester Place.

Manchester Place is a collaboration between Manchester city council and the Homes & Communities Agency and is tasked with creating a pipeline of development-ready sites to help Manchester meet its target of creating 55,000 new homes by 2027.

Congratulations to Deborah and her team for the work that has been done towards achieving this ambitious target. Congratulations also to the other shortlisted finalists - Matrix and Oldham Council - who just missed out on the main prize on the night.

Blayze Group is well known for its recruitment and talent management expertise in the residential sector and counts the country's leading house builders and consultancies among its clients. Indeed, it was the growing number of clients who already had a substantial presence in the North West that prompted Blayze Group to open its Manchester office in early 2015.

The North West is a vibrant market and is primed for significant growth as the various infrastructure and development projects associated with the Northern Powerhouse come to fruition. Blayze Group is ideally positioned to help property and construction companies address their skills and talent challenges in a rapidly expanding sector.

Congratulations to Insider North West for running such a slick event and well done to the winners and all the shortlisted nominees - this really was a great celebration of a fantastic year for the residential property sector in the North West.
