National Careers Week 2018

Date published: 21st March 2018

5th-10th March this year was National Careers Week, and to celebrate some of our staff members shared what they think is great about a career with Tuntum. Here’s what they said:

Chantelle Miller, Senior Housing Officer

“I started working at Tuntum 10 years ago, and I’ve been promoted a number of times. The training and development opportunities at Tuntum are great!”


Debbie Lambert, Customer Services Manager

“I enjoy working at Tuntum because no two days are the same! Answering the phone is like opening a packet of pick ‘n’ mix – you could get a soft-centred caramel, a hard-boiled sweet, a liquorice allsort. There’s so much variety!”

Jo Page, Head of Housing and Sales

“In 17 years at Tuntum, I’ve worked my way up to senior manager. I love my job as there’s enormous capacity to touch people’s lives in different ways. At Tuntum, housing means so much more than just putting a roof over someone’s head!”

Tahir Mahmood, Technical Officer

“I started at Tuntum in 1992 as a trainee, and it’s been a wonderful opportunity to develop my career as a building surveyor. My job is always interesting – I get to visit lots of our properties and meet lots of our diverse customers.”

Stacey Castillo, Housing Assistant

I have recently successfully completed a Level 4 certificate in Housing with CIH, which was funded by Tuntum. This investment in my housing knowledge and skills is helping me shape my dream career, and I’m very thankful for it!”

Cherelle Dyce, Technical Administrator

“The five words I’d use to summarise my 12 years of employment with Tuntum are exciting, rewarding, encouraging, opportunities and valued!”
