Celebrating International Women’s Day 2023

Join Haslams in celebrating International Women’s Day 2023. This year’s theme #EmbraceEquity highlights the importance of gender equity in every part of society’s DNA. The theme aims to get the world talking about why equal opportunities aren’t enough, as equity accounts for individuals who might need different resources to reach an equal outcome.

Today we look to the women at Haslams. Women currently make up 57% of the Haslams Group workforce, a figure well above the industry average of 49% for England and Wales according to the Office for National Statistics (2022).

As part of #IWD 2023, Haslams wanted to highlight some women in our business:

Megan Eighteen, Business Development Manager

“I feel very lucky to have worked with brands in my career that empower women. Many women believe that your career can end or hindered once becoming a mother but mine has done the opposite. I have a greater empathy, patience and compassion which in Estate Agency is vital. I am proud of my achievements including joining the Advisory board for ARLA Propertymark, gaining an array of qualifications and recently speaking at the first ever Women in Estate Agency conference.”

Claire Seymour, Assistant Head of Property Management

Claire’s number one priority is delivering exceptional customer service, which she has achieved every day since joining the Haslams team in 2019. Her friendly nature and passion for property is one of many reasons that Claire was recently promoted to assist in running the Property Management department. Trying to summarise Claire’s career achievements in such a short amount of words is impossible but Haslams are exceptionally lucky to have her.

Amy Bentley, Senior Lettings Negotiator and Valuer in Lettings Sales

Amy has gained superb experience in the property industry during her time with Haslams, consistently proving her dedication to her role, recognised by the recent promotion within the company to a senior position. Amy has an exceptional reputation with our staff and our customers which can be vouched for in our Google Reviews!
