Luxury holiday specialists – Cornish Gems are rapidly expanding whilst celebrating a prestigious national award.

The company, which launched in Lelant in 2007, opened its Hayle Head Office shortly after, followed by a relocation to larger premises in Threemilestone, Truro in 2010. They are now opening two regional offices before Easter - one in St Ives and one in Carbis Bay.

The new offices include the former Boots Pharmacy in Carbis Bay and a prime location at the bottom of Tregenna Hill in St Ives.

Founder and Managing Co-Director Julianne Shelton said:

 

"New office acquisition forms part of our continued growth strategy to further develop our brand and property portfolio. As we offer owners a full management package which encompasses everything from marketing through to managing the housekeeping, these offices will result in significant recruitment in the area."

"Our Carbis Bay office opens mid February and the St Ives office will open in March, prior to Easter."

The company are also celebrating having been awarded the Investors in People (IIP) Silver accreditation just before Christmas for the way it has transformed its business performance through the support and motivation of its team.

Julianne said: "IIP Silver accreditation comes after 15 months of enhancing the way we manage our staff and run our business. Cornish Gems is currently the only holiday cottage agency with IIP Silver accreditation in Cornwall."

The Silver award has been awarded to fewer than 600 organisations in the country, which is just 2.82 per cent of all organisations awarded the Investors in People Standard.

John Telfer, Managing Director of Inspiring Business Performance Ltd (IBP), the organisation that delivers Investors in People for London and the South, said: "This is a fantastic achievement for Cornish Gems, and clearly shows that continual improvement and development is a top priority."

Investors In People is a framework of best practice, awarded to well-run organisations that meet set criteria such as learning and development, leadership skills and recognition and reward of staff amongst others.  

Julianne said: "This is an incredible achievement for our company as we enter our sixth year of trading, we are proud to employ such a happy and motivated workforce, that share one common goal - to be the best at what they do."

Cornish Gems is Cornwall's leading one-stop holiday letting solution, providing a fully managed service for property owners - encompassing everything from marketing through to maintenance and housekeeping.
