You’ve seen them on our streets in our homes and on the worried faces of our friends and family.”She said the movement was formed by a “group of concerned community members that came together” with a common goal of supporting those affected by the housing crisis and to “take collective action to demand change”.“I don’t think I’m being too dramatic when I say that probably everyone here is affected by this, the housing crisis or at least know someone who’s affected.”“By coming out today, you have shown that the people in Limerick aren’t going to take it any longer. Underneath it all, we know that there are only two types of people in the housing struggle – the people that profit from it,  and the people who suffer from it.“We also know that there is ultimately more of us than there is of them,” the spokeswoman explained.

Exclusive: What Purplebricks’ US recruitment boss did when she returned to the UK

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Exclusive: What Purplebricks’ US recruitment boss did when she returned to the UK previous nextAgencies & PeopleExclusive: What Purplebricks’ US recruitment boss did when she returned to the UKStephanie Walker worked for four and a half years at Purplebricks including two years spent in California. So what next?Nigel Lewis16th October 201903,860 Views Many readers may not realise it but Purplebricks’ big push to recruit the management team and local experts for its US business across seven states was spearheaded by an estate agent from the North West of England.Stephanie Walker recently returned from the US following the demise of Purplebricks over the pond, and has set up a recruitment agency, Grace & Candour, based in Liverpool.She says the business is unique because it offers a traditional candidate search service for agents but also a free careers advice consultancy to candidates. Walker was based in California for two years with Purplebricks but before that was boss of its UK customer support operation and, prior to that, launched its first territory in Liverpool.The 31-year-old says she worked closely with the Bruce brothers during the initial years and misses the excitement of the early start-up period.“I remember Kenny Bruce telling me that Purplebricks was going to become the largest estate agent in the UK, and it’s made massive strides towards that,” she says.LiverpoolBetween 2003 and 2015, the year she joined Purplebricks, Walker worked for several estate agents in Liverpool including a three-year spell as a branch manager for Countrywide, and also as an area manager for another firm.“Back in the early 2010s I was wondering what to do next and it was a chance encounter on LinkedIn that led to my change of direction career-wise into Purplebricks”, she says.“It’s like that for agents out there now, many of whom are probably wondering what the future holds, and so my idea behind Grace & Candour is that I can be that go between talking to agents – whether  they are high street or hybrid – and give them advice on where their next step might be wherever they are in their career, rather than waiting for that chance message to come through.”Walker believes the UK industry is changing fast and that the days of agents sitting behind their desks waiting for business to come their way are disappearing fast – and that it could increasingly become like the US where it’s much more about the agent and their local knowledge.Stephanie Walker Purplebricks Kenny Bruce Countrywide October 16, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
