Emma Snoddy - Head of Lettings Marlborough
Shortlisted - Returner of the Year

Emma, a cancer survivor and mother of five is a true and was deservingly shortlisted for Returner of the Year – surpassing targets and earning accolades all the while facing personal challenges, she's pursued her ARLA qualification and advocated for flexible working options. Emma has had a huge impact at Hamptons and is hugely respected by her peers and senior figures within our business.  

Emma was diagnosed with cancer in August 2021 and subsequently battled two rounds of chemotherapy. She was given the all-clear in January ’22 then some months later fell pregnant with her 5th child, who arrived 6 weeks premature. Despite all the challenges thrown at her, in 2022 Emma and her team achieved a record income for the branch which was also 19% ahead of the target, the highest overperformance within the region. Equally impressive was the new business income which was 69% ahead of target. Emma has been back at work following maternity leave since March 2023.

Emma is highly regarded by her team, the Executive Team, and Senior Management, and like many women, she struggled when coming back and also suffered with her mental health after the birth of her daughter. She looked to the business for support and was able to negotiate flexible working hours, both from home and from the branch, that worked well for both parties. By communicating openly with her Regional Director about her mental health, she was assisted through the practicalities involved with her return, and open communication and regular check-ins remained a constant. Emma was able to benefit from the caring, inclusive, and nurturing culture she had created as leader.

Insecurity, self-doubt, and maternal guilt together with a genuine desire to thrive at work play a huge part in most women’s journey back to work after having a baby. Looking to the future Emma would like to use her own experiences to help other parents returning to work after maternity/parental leave. Teaming up with Hamptons Head of Lettings their vision is to create a coaching programme and pair returning employees with mentors who understand the unique challenges faced when navigating the tricky and overwhelming transition back to work. The overall aim is to offer guidance, support and to restore any lost confidence.

Emma is also keen to grow the income for her branch by a further 15% on their best-ever year so far in 2022 by driving her team’s performance. Emma is known at Hamptons for creating a very inclusive and nurturing environment for her team, they’re incredibly close, caring, and compassionate and work together celebrating successes and driving each other forward.

Emma is a remarkable individual and truly inspirational, having progressed her career whilst having 5 children. Her last child, and battling cancer all within the last year. Emma is a  true role model and an exceptional individual who is deserving of recognition.
