A Day in the Life of our Dorset Manager, Anne-Marie

Published: Monday 5th Aug 2019

Have you ever wondered what our team get up to? Anne-Marie, our Dorset Manager has shared with us her typical day in the life.

A typical day starts with either a 5-minute walk to the office, or a hop in the Wyke Dorset Cottages company car and out into Dorset countryside!

My role is so varied, I can be checking e-mails one minute, or talking to prospective homeowners the next.

My role is based all around Dorset so much of my time is in the car visiting areas that are new to Wyke Dorset Cottages. I’m generally at shows that we sponsor attracting new owners and guests with our local-based knowledge and offices.

I also get involved in the day to day as a support to the wonderful office staff and property managers, so this can be anything to dealing with problems or offering advice and guidance to everyone. I speak to the marketing team to ensure our portfolio is marketed to attract guests to the area and liaise with our team at Reepham in Norfolk to make sure that we doing everything to make Dorset the place to visit!

I also do our quality assessments which is a perfect opportunity to see our homeowners and their properties, as well as advising on ideas to make sure their property really stands out to guests.

At the end of a day, I get home and unwind with a run along the beach or a cheeky glass of wine! Lucky me living in Dorset,  I have a brilliant job, helping people come to stay with us or rent with us in the best county!
