About NB Real Estate


What is it like to work for NB Real Estate

Leadership
Leadership
The senior management team have all "grown up" within the organisation from a graduate or just qualified level. They also get involved in corporate responsibility activities and they are high profile at our staff parties. They communicate with employees at company briefings and town hall meetings, which ensure that everyone understands the company’s future strategy. There are also bi-monthly divisional director/associate breakfast briefings which are co-ordinated and hosted by peer group and allow another way to communicate.
My Team
My Team
There are various social events held to encourage employees to socialise and have fun outside of the work environment. There are employee parties held twice a year which are an important part of the social calendar and a chance to get together and let their hair down. There are also many sports teams including football, netball and hockey and every year, NB take part in the Surveyors Rugby 7's tournament which is a great day out for staff and their families. There are also charitable events, for example, Comic Relief, Give & Gain, Across Wales Walk and client team events which are joint social events with clients and staff, for example, bowling, cocktail mixing and the summer golf league. Formal team building also occurs. For example the NB Challenge involves two ocean-going yachts where ten members of staff compete against each other to gain points through navigation and sailing skills. Most have never sailed before, but there is a trained skipper on board.
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
NB is very supportive of charities. They offer to match employee fundraising which means that funds go to charities that mean something to them personally. They give all staff two days leave for charitable work which has helped local scouts, dog walking and school governorship. They also donated lockers from their basement showers to Broadway homelessness charity for one of their homeless shelters. They have an Environmental Committee, headed up by the EMS Manager, which is supported by representatives from across the company. This committee meets quarterly to review environmental performance of the organisation, and to identify potential improvement opportunities. The company operates a waste recycling system. All employees are educated to put recyclable waste into recycling bins, so as to minimise the amount of waste sent to landfill. Twice a year they run a 'Green Week' on the intranet, to raise awareness of climate change issues and provide advice on how they can reduce their impacts on the environment.
