More than 200 staff celebrate 4,000 years of collective service to Hull based holiday home specialist

Holiday homes specialist Willerby is celebrating the “incredible loyalty” of its workforce as more than 200 staff have clocked up 10 years’ service or more.

Almost a fifth of Hull-based Willerby’s 1,100-strong workforce have received recognition for their “loyalty and commitment” to the business, ranging from 10 years to more than four decades of service.

The employees’ combined milestones add up to a total of more than 4,000 years of collective dedication to Willerby. During a series of long-serving awards ceremonies, Willerby CEO Peter Munk congratulated and thanked the long servers for their admirable dedication.

He said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to have so many staff with such a wealth of experience in the business. However, it’s equally wonderful to have great new talent coming through and seeing our experienced colleagues passing on their skills and knowledge to the younger generation.”

The longest-serving staff member, prototype joiner Ian Wilson, has clocked up almost 44 years’ service after starting his Willerby career as a 16-year-old apprentice.

Ian, 59, said: “Willerby is a great company to work for and I love the diversity of the job. I work with good people and it’s nice to be recognised for long service alongside so many other colleagues.”
