Countrywide, is thrilled to be the first lettings agency to partner with Heroes4Hire Handymen, via its Bridgfords lettings businesses in Manchester and Cheshire.
Heroes4Hire Handymen helps former armed forces veterans get back into work and makes the most of the work ethic, skills and attention to detail of ex-servicemen and women. The ex-servicemen and women will carry out a broad range of services for Countrywide, from daily repair jobs to end of tenancy property health checks and preparing a property to let.
Over the last six months Countrywide has been working with Heroes4Hire to create a maintenance concept that is easy and straightforward for landlords and tenants. Each handyman undergoes a five week residential training course covering decorating, joinery, plumbing, building, plastering and more.
The roll out programme began this month with local handymen based in Greater Manchester, South Manchester and Cheshire. This will be followed by a 12 month national roll-out meaning the business will support more ex-service personnel into more jobs, and more of Countrywide’s customers will benefit from the maintenance service.
Ex-serviceman Nigel Blanchard founded Heroes4Hire Handymen in which ex-servicemen and women are professionally trained as handymen by their charity partner Building Heroes, and are able to carry out a range of property maintenance jobs to high standards.
