Chester-based lettings agent The Big Let Company has taken on its first apprentice through a new work-based learning scheme.
Rebecca Brockhurst is studying an NVQ in Business Administration while working at the company, and hopes to be given a full-time position once she completes her training. Being an apprentice lets Rebecca work towards achieving a nationally recognised qualification while The Big Let Company receive a government grant towards her income while she’s employed there.
Mike Barley and Bernadette Pedder, directors of The Big Let Company, said from their office in Chester "Having Rebecca working here as an apprentice is a first for us. It gives us the opportunity to help a young person get some much-needed qualifications in a genuine work-based environment. Doing it this way means Rebecca can see how to apply the skills she’s learning in a real business situation, and see how the world of employment works on a day to day basis. She is proving to be a real asset to the company so far, and we hope to be able to offer her something more permanent once she’s finished her apprenticeship."
The apprenticeship programme Rebecca is following was organised by Chester and north Wales based training company The Agile Group. Its apprenticeship schemes offer employers in the area the opportunity to take on apprentices who are able to combine on-the-job training with classroom-based learning so they develop both the practical skills and the theoretical knowledge the modern workplace demands.
Mike continued, "The Agile Group was instrumental in helping us employ Rebecca. They found us the right candidate to fit our needs and were extremely knowledgeable about the whole apprenticeship initiative and how it works, both practically and financially. Rebecca is our first ever apprentice, and, hopefully, she won’t be our last."
Leading Chester letting agency The Big Let Company has teamed up with storage agents Big Storage and local marketing agents thebestofchester in a unique partnership that will showcase all three brands in one place.
The Big Let Company's new To Let boards will now display both Big Storage's and thebestofchester's logos as well its own, increasing awareness of the three businesses across Chester. In a further show of solidarity, The Big Let Company has also moved its offices from the city centre to Big Storage's site on Sealand Road.
Mike Barley, owner of The Big Let Company, believes the association will strengthen each business’s place in the local community, and help members of the public see them as some of the best businesses in Chester.
He said "Our joint branding initiative with Big Storage and thebestofchester was done to show people in Chester we are the best letting agent in town, and Big Storage as the best at what they do too. Having thebestofchester logo on our To Let boards adds a credibility no other letting agent will get. We’re passionate about local people using local businesses, and this is just one of the ways we can do that."
The Big Let Company was set up almost twenty years ago by Mike and his business partner Bernadette Pedder, and offers a rental service for landlords needing tenants and tenants looking for rental property. It covers Chester and North Wales, and also deals with commercial clients and students.
Mike's relocation to his new premises also made perfect sense, as it means he has an office next door to Big Storage, so new tenants can find a home for their spare belongings as well as themselves.
"Having Big Storage next door to us means we can forge even closer ties with them, and help each other out. Our tenants often need somewhere to store possessions when they move, so having that facility on our doorstep is a great extra service we can offer them."
Andrew Donaldson, owner of Big Storage said "Big Storage is delighted to formalise our partnership with the Big Let Company, and together with thebestofchester, we look forward to continuing to build our brands and reputation across Chester and the region."
Paul Daniels, who owns thebestofchester, said "We are proud to have The Big Let Company and Big Storage as members of thebestofchester. They are credible brands that have demonstrated exceptionally high quality customer service over a sustained period of time. We are ambassadors for their expertise and are delighted to engage with this strategic collaborative marketing initiative which we believe will increase the visibility and independent reputation of our brands."

We have used the The Big Let Company to manage a number of properties in our portfolio and have found them to be both professional and efficient. Unlike a number of local agents we have used in the past they have proved to be reliable and committed to providing a good service. Would not hesitate to recommend them.Andrew Smith - t-500 Rentals Ltd, Chester
