FORMER hairdresser Esme Griffin has been appointed lettings manager at the Keighley office of Dacre, Son & Hartley.

She joined the estate agent, in its customer services division, at the start of this year after opting for a career change.

As part of her latest role, she will manage the company’s extensive rental portfolio.

She is also completing a level-three diploma in residential property letting and management.

“Joining Dacres has been a fantastic opportunity and it’s certainly lived up to my expectations,” said Esme, who lives at Denholme.

“I’ve really enjoyed working in the customer services department, where no two days have ever been the same, but I’m delighted to now be joining the lettings division in Keighley and looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.

“Attracting new landlords, who want to maximise their returns, will be one of my main priorities over the coming months.”
