The Senior management were poor with bad decision making issues.
They promoted the company to be far better than it really was with serious underlying cost issues on all the sites which is why I left.

The office became very crammed as they brought in more staff and it was not suitable or adequate for the numbers of staff employed

This type of position can be very stressful and demanding, high expectations. Issues with working/controlling sub contractors and getting work completed with poor sub contractors. Price is everything.
Pros
none
Cons
High expectations

I worked at Keepmoat for 2 years. People thought I was mad to go there. There was a culture of fear and bullying but the senior managers were changing just as I arrived so I thought I,d be ok.
First day arrive at head office expecting to attend a sales meeting and meet my colleagues. But the meeting had been cancelled. Instead I was given the keys for a sales office and told to look after the site for my first 2 weeks. That was basically how it went after that day. No training, no support loads of politics and the culture of fear was still prevalent despite new management. The new senior managers brought in new people from their previous companies. Gave them Several thousands of pounds extra pay and title of Seniors. Causing bitter resentment amongst the older staff.

Managers have no man management skills and absolutely no awareness of their own impact on people. These are the worst managers I have ever encountered!,

Good money if your prepared to bite your lip on a daily basis I. But overall this company has no integrity at all either towards staff or buyers.

Beware!
Pros
Decent money
Cons
Dreadful managers no integrity

typical day would consist of order materials, following up with trades with outstanding works. snagging plots before sign off for customers.
I learned a lot about build and how fats paced it can be also what to look for before booking in key stages of build for NHBC inspections.

The staff that I worked with could not have been lovelier helping me settle in and showing me the ropes. Good environment to work, everyone in the office very friendly.

My typical day at work involved undertaking customer care defects in both occupied properties and pre key release. Organising the sub-contractors programme of works, ensuring they were wearing their PPE and following RAMS etc. Calling off kitchens/appliances and various other materials. Organising and co-ordinating the multi utility services and gas meter fits. The hardest part of the job was trying to hit year end figures with under performing sub-contractors which is generally the normal issue within the industry to be fair. Most rewarding is actually handing over a finished home to the customer whether they're a first time buyer or anyone simply fancying a change. Management were supportive when site had done a good job and like all management were critical if it was warranted. The biggest thing I learned was no 2 days are the same.

Keepmoat is a great workplace for a person who wants experience with labor work. I have done Joinery, Plumbing, and Plastering. I had seniors who looked out for me.
