Ellis Pearson, Office Manager at Pye Homes, Shares her Experiences
Each month, we hear from someone who works for our company to explain more about their role, the ins and outs of their daily job, achievements they’re proud of, and what they like about working for Pye. This month we spoke to Ellis Pearson, who expertly juggles various roles here at Pye.
What are your main duties as Office Manager?
I carry out three separate roles at Pye Homes starting with assisting our technical team with administrative tasks such as uploading all of our technical drawings to hosting platforms, making it easier and more efficient for people to view the plans and relevant updates. Managing our head office to maintain a comfortable, safe, and practical work environment, ensuring that all departments have the necessary equipment to carry out their daily tasks and lastly supporting our Pye apprentices in their professional development. I love being part of so many areas of the business and a conduit for all of our departments.
How long have you been working for Pye? What do you like about the company?
I started my career at Pye when I was 19 years old as an office receptionist. The family atmosphere immediately stood out for me and made it a great place to work. I really admire that everyone tries to help each other to the best of their ability & pull together at every opportunity.
We spend almost a third of the time in our lives working, so it’s important to feel a sense of purpose and belonging at work. That is definitely the case for my dad, Nigel Pearson, our Head of Customer Care, whose dedication to the job and the company for 30 years, inspired me to follow in his footsteps and join Pye Homes almost 10 years ago!
Is there anything that you’ve worked on that you’re particularly proud of?
I take a lot of pride in supporting our young apprentices and seeing them working through their National Vocational Qualifications for their future careers. When they complete their Apprenticeships with a budding career ahead of them, I feel a deep sense of achievement knowing that I offered guidance and support in their progression.
