Andy Bushell – Franchise Director

Andy Bushell has vast experience of the estate agency industry after starting his career as a trainee back in 1993. Before joining Hunters he held a variety of roles at regional management level for large corporations.

Andy moved into the franchise market over 15 years ago when the concept was relatively new to the UK; particularly within the estate agency industry. His extensive experience in franchising has given him a deep understanding of the benefits for independent businesses to join the Hunters™ franchise model; one that he describes as having a strong feel with a modern twist and able to successfully operate across all demographics within the UK housing market- he is passionate about his work and hopes to see our franchise brand represented in all areas across the country.

When Andy has some free time, he enjoys socialising with his family and friends, getting away from it all on a relaxing holiday; he is also a keen (and talented) guitarist.

Jayne Twiddle – Head of Franchise Support

Jayne Twiddle is the Head of Franchise Support and is based in our York HQ. Jayne began her career in the estate agency industry back in 2002 as a negotiator and accompanied viewer. Since she started, Jayne has progressed through a variety of roles such as sales progression, valuer, branch manager, lettings, software support, and audits, so she really does have a great insight into the Hunters brand and how it works.

As Head of Franchise Support, Jayne is responsible for helping to build the franchise network to cover the whole of the UK and providing support for the people at the heart of our business, our franchisees. Her motivation and enthusiasm for working with people is what makes her so strong as part of the franchise team; her ability to trouble shoot problems and get things done is evident in all she achieves.

When Jayne finds some time out of the office, she likes to spend time with her children and grandchildren, and she also loves yoga, running, and just generally being outdoors.

Adam’s work focuses heavily on the digital side of our business and includes lead generation through our website and social media, content creation, and ongoing management of third-party suppliers that help keep the Hunters brand strong in the property marketplace.
Adam moved to Hunters after completing his master’s degree in Business and subsequently spending a year as the Marketing Manager for Oxfam (Oxfam’s Music Branch). His keen interest in data and writing, and his flair for marketing has proved to be a real asset to Hunters.

Adam is an avid blogger in his free time, covering topics such as music, theatre, coffee and beer, he also loves music and tries to attend several live events a week; although, if there is a Leeds United match on – that is where you will most likely find him.

Gemma Allen – National Training Manager

Gemma Allen joined the Hunters family at the tender age of 21 and has been with us ever since. Gemma has worked hard to tackle and master several roles during her time with us; before moving to our York HQ to take up her role as Training Manager, she was the Branch Manager of our Central Manchester office.

Gemma is very motivated in her role; her ‘can do’ attitude is infectious, and she is dedicated to working hard as part of a great team to achieve big things for Hunters.

Gemma expertly guides all franchisees and Hunters staff through the HNQ qualification and ensures all future training needs are met through a constantly updated portfolio of provision- she has some grand plans to expand and increase the training solutions currently on offer- so watch this space.

When Gemma is not engaging with franchisees, pulling together training resources, and delivering nationally accredited training programmes, she likes to unwind with her family and friends, searching for the perfect Espresso Martini, or simply getting lost in a good book.
