Our Purpose:

To help people move on with their lives

Our Core Values:

  • We do the right thing
  • We practise open and real communication
  • We deliver on our commitments
  • We are the best we can be
  • We embrace new and innovative solutions to constantly improve what we do

Our philosophy to hard work is simple. While it may not lead to success on its own, it remains one of the prerequisites of success within Jones Robinson Estate Agents Ltd. The ideal employee is someone who is looking long term to pursue a career rather than a job and is determined to succeed.

 

This is not a “hire and fire” company. We do not easily employ someone and once we make a commitment we do our utmost to keep our part of the bargain. We have a certain standard and work ethos which we endeavour to equip you to meet. However, it is important for you to recognise that in this company your success is in your hands.

 

There are three essential criteria that we seek in the individuals we employ:

  • Communication– the ability to communicate effectively with your colleagues and your customers is essential. You will need to be confident and professional.
  • Attitude– You will need to be positive, enthusiastic, resilient and determined.
  • Organisation– we deal with huge volumes of people in busy and hectic environments. The ability to be highly organised and methodical in your approach to your daily tasks is essential.

 

We are an equal opportunities employer and do not discriminate on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race; religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation.

Our Recruitment Process:

To ensure we recruit only the highest calibre of individuals, all applicants must complete quite a rigorous recruitment process. We will only offer positions to successful applicants.

  • The first step is our application form. If this is completed to our standards, we will then arrange a telephone interview with applicants.
  • If we like what we hear in the telephone interview, you will then be invited in for a face-to-face interview.
  • Candidates that pass the face-to-face interview will be invited to spend an appropriate amount of time (at least three hours) with their peers to witness first hand the job that they are applying for.
  • Should you pass these assessment stages, the final stage will be an interview with senior management.

Anna Lyons Head of Property Management

My career arc at Jones Robinson started in 2007, when I began as a Trainee Administrative Assistant on the lettings side of the business. Soon after this I became a Negotiator, then in 2014 moved into the property management department, where I have been working as head of department since 2015.

Working as part of a team at Jones Robinson has to be the top highlight for me, plus I really enjoy liaising with landlords and the fact that every day is different and presents new challenges. I love the family feel that working for Jones Robinson offers.

One of my best achievements to date was being given the opportunity to head up the Property Management department and overseeing such a fantastic, dedicated team.

Michael Simpson Valuer

My role as valuer at Jones Robinson began in 2013 following 13 years with a previous company. The reason I left was quite simple – they didn’t care! About their people or their clients, both of which are fundamental to the success of any company but very few get right.  At Jones Robinson I feel that my well-being, development, my future, and my family are all genuinely cared about, and our customer service is paramount in everything we do!

 

I really enjoy meeting new people and doing the valuations. I enjoy negotiating sales between vendor and prospective purchaser, which I believe to be one of my best skills, and I love taking photographs and showing their homes in their best light!

 

Last year was my best year with Jones Robinson so far, which I was very proud of, but my proudest career moment would probably be when I got my first branch managers role 14 years ago.

Sian Cockerell Head of Lettings, Devizes

I started in July 2014 as a Trainee Lettings Negotiator and over time progressed to Senior Lettings Negotiator. I recently took on the position as Lettings Manager at Martin Walker, our office in Devizes, which has been a really exciting change for me.

 

One of the things I enjoy most about my role is giving great customer service and helping people to move on with their lives!

 

I enjoy working for Jones Robinson as they are such a lovely team; they really make you feel at home and encourage your progression.

Laura Davenport Senior Lettings Consultant

I left a job in education to work as a lettings consultant at Jones Robinson in 2013; a year later I was promoted to valuer. Since then my role has steadily expanded as I’ve built my valuation experience and knowledge and learned all the different legislation for the lettings industry. At the same time I’ve gained all-round insight into all the job roles in our lettings team, and currently take on the most instructions for the team.

One of the best things about working for such a good company is the people I work with. I have true friends here, not just colleagues, and the environment is lovely. I enjoy the challenges at work as well. I like to be kept stimulated and my role provides that because no day is the same!

I love helping people find the right home for them. A proud moment is knowing that you have done a good job for people, have helped them ‘move on’ with their lives. Sometimes you can do something that to you might seem really small, but could mean a great deal to other people.

Beth Sharpe Graduate Trainee

A relative newcomer, I am on the virtual graduate scheme – I started in property management for 2 months, then lettings for 3 months and am now in sales for 3 months. After this I’ll decide which department I will go into on a permanent basis.

It’s been a real privilege to work in every department of the business and has given me a great insight into the whole company; I have seen the ways in which each department work in order to be successful and how each department compliments one another. The role has facilitated my love for learning new skills & building relationships with all types of people – I am always kept busy by the variety of different tasks to be done.

I am very proud to work for Jones Robinson – they have meaningful values and always do the right thing. I feel like what I do has a purpose, which is very fulfilling and gives me great job satisfaction. I can’t wait until I have more responsibility…
