Beal rising star recognised in Top 30 Under 30 awards

Press Releases

Our own Harry Fawcett has been named as one of Hull and Humber's best young talents.

A Beal Homes rising star has been hailed as a business high-flyer in an initiative recognising the region’s most talented young employees under the age of 30.

Teen Trainee Quantity Surveyor Harry Fawcett is one of 30 young professionals to be named in the “Hull and Humber Top 30 Under 30” awards after a glowing nomination from his award-winning employer.

Now in its second year, the awards give companies across the Humber region the opportunity to highlight and celebrate their emerging talent by nominating star employees under 30 years of age.

Still only 19 years old, Harry began laying the foundations for a successful career with Beal during a school work placement, followed by a voluntary summer stint a year later.

Recognising his early potential, Beal created a Trainee Quantity Surveyor position for Harry and enrolled him in a Construction and Built Environment course at Hull College.

Lee Carratt, Beal’s Human Resources Manager, said: “It was obvious early on that Harry showed a lot of potential and we knew that if Beal did not snap him up, one of our competitors certainly would!

“The company has experienced rapid growth in the number of new homes we build in the last couple of years resulting in an increased workload which would have challenged the most experienced of Quantity Surveyors, yet since Harry joined us he’s taken this in his stride, which for someone aged just 19 is an incredible achievement.”

An integral part of the Beal technical team, Harry is now responsible for managing and monitoring costs in excess of £35million as lead Quantity Surveyor at Beal’s flagship West Hill development in Willerby, East Yorkshire. All this while at the same time studying for a Surveying degree.

Harry said: “I’m incredibly proud to be named as one of the ‘Hull and Humber Top 30 Under 30’ best young employees.

“Since joining Beal Homes I’ve learned so much about the housebuilding industry and I’m putting that knowledge to good use while studying for my degree.

“I’m so grateful to Beal for all their support of my development and progression and I look forward to a long and happy career with them.”

Lee added: “These awards send out a clear message that there are exciting career prospects for emerging talent in the housebuilding industry and especially with Beal. We’re focusing strongly on developing a pipeline of skills and talent, right across the business.

“We have absolute faith in Harry’s abilities and look forward to continuing to support and develop his career with us at Beal Homes.”

The awards celebration event will be held on Friday, April 12, at the KCOM Stadium.
