Ben Cottingham
Graduate 2016

“Hightown’s graduate scheme caught my eye by offering such a varied and comprehensive range of work within a growing association, in an ever-challenging sector. I’ve been given real responsibility from day one, being offered the opportunity to actively work as a part of enthusiastic and supportive teams who have pushed me to step out of my comfort zone and push myself to work through challenges within different areas of the housing sector.

"Working in different departments within Hightown has granted me a greater understanding of how all sorts of different roles interact, and ultimately, how this helps our clients. This has also led to greater personal effectiveness in each placement, as I’m able to share what I’ve learned with those around me.


"The graduate scheme has allowed me to interact with colleagues and clients alike in a number of rewarding ways, allowing me both to grow as an individual and to gain a true insight into Hightown’s positive ethos, and drive to provide affordable homes and support for people in housing need.”
