Polegate-based Parker Building Supplies is celebrating the university success of six employees.
Tim Briance has passed a Builders Merchants Federation Foundation Degree with distinction and Jake Feek, Laura Pierce, Lee Church, Jamie Pierce and Dave Clark have received post-graduate diplomas in Independent Merchant Leadership and Strategy with merits. Jamie and Lee also achieved a Multi-Unit Leadership & Strategy Master’s Degree with merits.
The degrees are part of Parker Building Supplies’ Professional and Personal Development Programme which ensures that each employee fulfils their potential.
The firm’s Training & Development Manager, Shelly Hodges, said, “We’re very proud of all the members of our team who have been awarded their degrees. It’s not easy to juggle a full time job while studying but these employees have managed to do this to an excellent standard and we congratulate them all.”
The degrees will be awarded by the Vice Chancellor of Birmingham City University at Symphony Hall, Birmingham, at the official graduation ceremony in July.
Parker Building Supplies is one of the largest builders’ merchants in the region and has branches throughout Sussex and Kent. The firm has recently moved its head office from Uckfield to Polegate.
