Sam Tebbs, Avonside Management Trainee

We really do like to grow our own here at Avonside! We’d like to wish Sam Tebbs, our new Management Trainee, a warm welcome to the ever-growing and thriving Avonside team.

Sam successfully secured his position at Avonside following an intensive qualifying process. As a Management Trainee for the Group, he will gain valuable exposure to all the different and varied areas of the business throughout his training programme. This will allow him to support the business as is appropriate and ultimately fast track him to fulfil a rewarding management role within the Avonside Group.

We’re thrilled to have made further investments to improve and strengthen our management capabilities within our ranks.

Speaking about the positive move to hire Sam, Avonside Group Services Managing Director, Tony Burke said: “We are delighted that Sam has elected to take up this opportunity. It is important to us that we develop more of our management talent from within and we are all very excited about this initiative. We think it highlights a planned and progressive approach for the business.”
