Doncaster based iHus scores a recruitment hattrick

2021 was the busiest year to date for iHus – the country’s leading granny annexe suppliers – with a 600 per cent increase in demand.

This demand has led to a number of key hires which have culminated in three recent design and marketing appointments.

Tom Gregory, Kirsten Nicole Scott and Lydia Kilner have all joined the growing business with ambitious plans for 2022.

Tom, 22, from Retford has joined as a Designer. Having recently graduated with a first in product design he was keen to start his career in design in a company with vision and opportunity.


Tom said: “I chose IHus as it gives me the chance to work in a small and super friendly team that has lots of personality and energy within it. I also really enjoy the fact my designs will be built giving the client a home that is designed just for them.

“My designs will also have such a meaningful impact on the quality of life of our customers. I also really enjoy the variety of the projects and unique specifications.”

Kirsten Nicole Scott, 27 from Doncaster has been appointed Marketing Manager. Kirsten has worked with brands including Laterooms and Coca Cola. She joins iHus from Route 1 Print in Rotherham and has hit the ground running as it’s such a busy time for the expanding business, but, as she explains, it’s also a great place to be.

“I love the family feel to the iHus team. Everybody plays their own important part in ensuring the customer has a seamless journey from planning to sign off. The team work together brilliantly, and Trev is very open minded to new ideas when they’re brought to the table – iHus is a forward thinking, open-minded and positive place to work.” Kirsten said.

Lydia is new to the construction industry but highly skilled in customer service having worked for over 13 years in the hospitality industry.

Now 30, Lydia is also based in Doncaster and was looking for a new challenge when she applied to be a part of the iHus team.

Lydia said: “iHus has got personality and you can see that everyone here has a genuine desire to make great homes for our clients and improve their quality of life. There is a lot of feel-good factor here! However, there’s also really clear processes and organisation which appeals to the neat freak in me!”

Trevor Smeaton, founder and MD of iHus added: “It’s always great to be able to offer young people an opportunity to develop their careers and with Lydia, Kirsten and Tom we have some real talent that we know will benefit the business as we look forward to expanding further.”
