Staff Spotlight: Darrell Parkinson
How long have you been working for ideal?
It will be around a year now since I started working here.
How has your experience been since you started working here?
My experience has been great, learning many new skills, and also being able to share my previous experience with others with the same interests.
Working alongside Martin and the team, how is the environment?
I enjoy working with Patrick and Martin, learning new things every day between the 3 of us.
What is the biggest task you have had to take on so far?
Out of all the varied tasks for our houseshares and crashpads, it has to be getting the ‘Strathblane’ property refurbished for Airbnb. It was a big but great task, with all aspects of the process in order for this to be completed. This also gave me a chance to pick my skills in plastering and putting up partitioned walls, (stud walls).
How do you see yourself progressing in the near future?
I see myself buying houses, doing all the work myself, and selling them/renting. I’m also hoping to learn loads of new things from the company and the CEO Kris to improve my business knowledge in property.
What do you enjoy? (hobbies, interests, etc)
I enjoy football, music, plumbing😇 and socialising with friends and loved ones.
