Lauren relocates to Portixol

Bondholder Portixol Relocations — which specialises in home-finding and relocation services to companies and individuals across the country — has appointed Lauren Docksey as its new Business Relationship Manager.

We’ve known Lauren for a while and I have always been impressed with her professional, calm and personable manner.
— Carl Bridge, owner of Portixol Relocations

In recent months, the firm has attracted new clients in Cheshire, Wiltshire, East Anglia and the East and West Midlands — as well as from Derby itself. The growth has been overseen by Managing Director Mark Averill, who himself joined the business in May 2015. Mark said: "We have received glowing recommendations from companies including Derby-based Ford and Stanley and this has given other businesses the confidence to work with us. By finding new employees a home and helping them quickly settle into the area, they hit the ground running in their new job straight away. Employers have found a winning formula when we work closely with their recruitment teams and Lauren's remit will be to enhance this benefit for employers."

Lauren was previously the wedding and events co-ordinator at a local employer and Carl Bridge — owner of Portixol Relocations — is ebullient about the new recruit: "We've known Lauren for a while and I have always been impressed with her professional, calm and personable manner. Lauren is tailor-made for this role and I've been hugely impressed during the two relocations that we worked together on in Milton Keynes last week. Our sister company The Birchover Residences will also benefit from Lauren's experience when we open our apartment-hotel at the Bridgford Hall wedding venue next Spring."
