Former Purplebricks territory manager in Oz reveals why he quit

He has told The Negotiator that tried to communicate with management but felt he was ignored, and decided to pilot a new agency with a similar model instead.Details of his time at the hybrid agency include 80-hour weeks and struggling to sell the sales instructions he received while at the company.Straalen, who now operates his own agency JVS Real Estate also in Perth, claims Purplebricks threatened to withdraw postcodes from his territory when he asked to hire a second sales assistant. He and his initial assistant were looking after nearly 50 properties for sale at one point.But shockingly, he also claims that unsuccessful sales people at the hybrid agency were referred to by some colleagues as ‘cancer’ within internal communications.“Purplebricks will have to change the formula dramatically if they want to grow the business here,” he told the The Financial Review.LPE earningsFigures detailing how much LPEs earn in Oz have also been revealed by a local newspaper. This includes how agents are paid £560 for each customer they get on board and that they are expected to sell eight properties a month, a target that only a few of the Oz team hit, it is claimed.It has also emerged that LPEs in Australia are paid share options but only when they reach a sales rate of 40%. The Negotiator approached Purplebricks for comment but so far has not received a response.Read more about Purplebricks in Australia.Jason van Straalen perth Purplebricks Australia August 23, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

‘Gay’ comment rouses Pembroke anger

first_imgA STUDENT standing for election as Pembroke’s Sports Rep was accused of making homophobic comments as part of his manifesto during JCR hustings last Sunday.In the concluding part of his manifesto, first-year biologist Ashley Grossmann said, “Vote for Ash ‘cos Shezz is gay.” His comments caused anger among JCR members who demanded that nominations be re-opened.Lizz Paley, a Pembroke first-year, criticised Grossmann’s comment as tactless. “It was just immature, insensitive and stupid. I don’t know how he thinks he can represent the whole college when he says stuff like that,” she said.Another first-year said he felt Grossmann’s comments implied wider intolerance of homosexuality in the College. “It showed the underlying attitudes which permeate the College. If something like that had happened at Wadham it would’ve been looked at quite abhorrently and wouldn’t have been tolerated,” he said. Grossmann has apologised to the JCR and said that his comment was not intended to be taken seriously. “I am mortified to think that anyone may have been offended by what I wrote on my manifesto. It was supposed to be a childish, light-hearted joke, which in hindsight was perhaps rather ill thought out. I hope that anyone who has been affected by this will accept my apology. I would hate to think that anyone would consider me or Pembroke prejudiced or bigoted in any way,” he said. One first year who wished to remain anonymous accused members of the JCR of exaggerating the incident. “Some people need to lighten up a bit and take themselves less seriously,” he said. “Ashley was just having a laugh. There are a few people in college looking to pick a fight against what’s perceived as public-school bias at Pembroke.”In a response to Grossmann’s comment, messages were chalked on the wall of Pembroke’s bar without either candidate’s knowledge, saying, “Vote for Ash ‘cos Shezz is Gay”, with the additional slogan, “Vote for Shezza ‘cos Ash is a Lezza.”last_img read more

Statement to parliament: Modernising Defence Programme – Update

first_imgIn July, I made a statement setting out headline conclusions from six months of work on the Modernising Defence Programme (MDP). Since then, work has continued apace. Firstly, I would like to welcome the extra £1.8-billion of funding for Defence, including the additional £1-billion that was in last month’s Budget.Today, I want to provide an update on the MDP, and set out the work that will be ongoing. I have placed a full report on the MDP in the library of the House.First, I should put the MDP into context.The 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review was the right plan for Defence at that time. The Government put the Defence budget on a firmer footing, increasing throughout the life of the Parliament. Defence is much stronger as a result of that. NATO is growing in strength and the UK is a leader. More allies are meeting the 2 per cent spending guideline, or have developed plans to do so. We are the second largest defence spender in NATO, one of only a small number of allies to spend 2 per cent of our GDP on defence, and invest 20 per cent of that in upgrading equipment.We can be proud of what we have achieved since 2015. But we have to also be vigilant. National security challenges have become more complex, intertwined and dangerous since 2015 and these threats are moving much faster than anticipated.Persistent, aggressive state competition now characterises the international security context. In response to the growing threats the MDP was launched in January.And, in the last year, our Armed Forces have demonstrated their growing capability, engaged globally, and supported the prosperity of the UK. The Royal Navy has increased its mass and points of presence around the world. We have taken steps to forward base the Army, enhancing our global posture. The Royal Air Force has continued to innovate, and has celebrated a proud past its RAF100 years since its creation. Progress has also made in cyber and space, as the changing character of warfare makes both domains increasingly important. We have reinforced the UK’s position as a leading voice in NATO and on European security. And, our Armed Forces have led the way for Global Britain, tackling our adversaries abroad to protect our security at home and nurturing enduring relationships with our allies and partners.Through the work over the past year the MDP has identified three broad priorities, supported by the additional £1.8-billion invested in Defence.Firstly, we will mobilise, making more of what we already have to make our current force more lethal and better able to protect our security.The UK already has a world-leading array of capabilities. We will make the most effective use of them.We will improve the readiness and availability of a range of key Defence platforms: major warships, attack submarines, helicopters and a range of ISTAR platforms. We are adjusting our overseas training and deployments to increase our global points of presence, better to support allies and influence adversaries.To improve the combat effectiveness of our Force, we will re-prioritise the current Defence programme to increase weapon stockpiles. And we are accelerating work to assure the resilience of our Defence systems and capabilities.We can mobilise a full spectrum of military, economic and soft power capabilities. And, where necessary and appropriate we will make sure we are able to act independently.We will also enhance efforts with our allies and partners, aligning our plans more closely with them, acting as part of combined formations, developing combined capabilities, and burden-sharing. And we continue to invest in, and grow, our global network of Defence personnel and the education and training we offer in the UK and overseas.Secondly, we will modernise, embracing new technologies to assure our competitive edgeOur adversaries and competitors are accelerating the development of new capabilities and strategies. We must keep pace, and conceive of our joint force as consisting of five domains, air, land, sea, cyber and space, rather than the traditional three.We must modernise, targeting priority areas. A major new step will involve improved Joint Forces Command that will be in a better position so that defence can play a major role in preventing conflict in the future and improve our cyber operations and capabilities across the armed forces but also across government as well.This year Defence’s Innovation Fund put £20-million towards projects in areas including unmanned air systems, virtual reality training, and enhanced digital communications for the Future Commando Force. The fund will grow to £50-million next financial year, increasing the scope, ambition and value of the projects it can support.We will launch new ‘Spearhead’ innovation programmes that will apply cutting-edge technologies to areas including sub-surface threats to our submarines, our intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capability, and command and control in the Land Environment as well.And to drive innovation and change through the Department I am launching a Transformation Fund. Next year, I will ring-fence £160-million of MOD’s budget to create this fund available for innovative new military capabilities. I will look to make a further £340-million available as part of the Spending Review. This fund will be available for new innovative military capabilities which allows us to stay one step ahead of our adversaries.Together these and other steps will enable the acceleration of our modernisation plans.Thirdly, we will transform, radically changing the way we do business in Defence.We need to improve markedly the way we run Defence. To sustain strategic advantage in a fast-changing world, we must be able and capable of continuous and timely adaptation. We will embrace modern business practices and establish a culture that nurtures transformation and innovation.We also need to create financial headroom for modernisation. Based on our work to date, we expect to achieve over the next decade the very demanding efficiency targets we were set in 2015, including through investment in a programme of digital transformation.We will develop a comprehensive strategy to improve recruitment and retention of talent, better reflecting the expectations of the modern workforce. We will access more effectively the talents of our ‘Whole Force’ across all three Services, Regulars, Reserves, Civil Service and industrial partners.Looking ahead, dealing effectively with persistent conflict and competition will increasingly hinge on smarter, better informed long-range strategy. To help achieve these goals we will establish a permanent Net Assessment Unit, as well as a Defence Policy Board of external experts, to bring challenge to Defence policy and to Defence strategy.Our achievements under the MDP have made Defence stronger. The capability investments and policy approaches set out, with the £1.8-billion worth of Defence funding, will help us keep on track to deliver the right UK Defence for the challenging decade ahead.Without a shadow of a doubt, there is more work to be done as we move towards next year’s Spending Review. We must sustain this momentum if we are to realise our long-term goals of increasing the lethality, reach and mass of our Armed Forces. I will do everything within my power to make sure that the UK remains a Tier-One military power in the decade ahead, and that we continue to deliver the strong defence and security that has been the hallmark of the government.I commend this statement to the House.The Modernising Defence Programme*[GDP] gross domestic productlast_img read more

Budget chain easyCoffee aims to open 200 stores in two years

first_imgEasyCoffee is aiming to disrupt the coffee shop market in the next two years by opening 200 stores selling hot drinks at £1 a cup.Brand director Nick Paterson-Jones described the franchise company as the “new kids on the block” who would “challenge everyone on price”. Greggs and Starbucks will be key rivals of the business, which is backed by easyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.Launched in the UK in January, easyCoffee currently has three sites – two in London and one in Southend – but has been receiving interest from potential franchisees across the UK, particularly in Northern Ireland.“Ideally we want to open sites in big shopping centres and travel hubs, places where there is a lot of footfall,” Paterson-Jones told British Baker. “The ideal store size would be 500 to 1,000sq ft, with limited seating.”EasyCoffee aims to undercut rivals by selling cups of Lavazza coffee or tea for £1, with a 16oz cup at £1.60.Its food range is priced more in line with competitors, with a bacon, egg and cheese bap at £2.40; porridge at £1.95; smoothies at £2.80; and a cheese and ham toastie at £3.20.The company is expected to grow organically from its London base in the next year but may offer regional master franchises across the UK, covering areas such as Bristol or Manchester, Paterson-Jones said.New easyCoffee sites in locations including in Croydon, Uxbridge, Wembley, High Wycombe, Slough and Brighton are to open in the next six months.Plans are also in hand to launch vending machines for offices, shops, stations and airports.Paterson-Jones said the business had looked at acquiring existing chains to fuel its expansion.It would possibly go down the acquisition route in the future, but was not proactively doing anything on that front at the moment, he said.Currently the company is supplied by wholesalers including Brakes and JJ Food Service, he added.The easyCoffee chain is a partnership between Sir Stelios’ easyGroup and businessman Nathan Lowry, who has licensed the global ‘easy’ brand.last_img read more

Private investment fleeing coal in India, backing renewables instead

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:If India is such a bright hope for global coal demand, why can’t investors see it?The country will experience the largest increase in coal burning through 2023, according to the International Energy Agency, with a 3.9% annual pace of growth that should be enough to offset falling consumption in developed countries. BloombergNEF, whose forecasts tend to be less bullish than the IEA’s on fossil fuel demand, is not far behind: Coal-fired generation will increase about 48% by 2030 to hit 1,512 terawatt-hours, more than all of Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America.The curious thing is that when you look at the Indian power sector, there are few signs it’s on the brink of a boom. Quite the opposite: As many as 65 gigawatts of the 90GW of private-sector generators connected in India are under financial stress, according to a parliamentary report last year. As my colleague Andy Mukherjee has written, the resulting 1.8 trillion rupees ($26 billion) in bad loans is contributing to a nonperforming asset crisis that risks undermining the Indian financial system. Furthermore, activity to increase coal-fired generation is overwhelmingly dependent on state support. Out of 48GW of coal generators planned to be built by 2027 under the country’s current electricity plan, just 14% is being developed by the private sector; a matching 48GW of generation is already slated for retirement by the same date.Even that modest level of private investment appears to be retreating now, according to a report published Friday by the Centre for Financial Accountability, a Delhi-based group pushing for better standards of development finance. Lending to coal-fired power fell 90% in 2018, to 60 billion rupees from 608 billion rupees the previous year, the CFA said. The vast majority of that total was refinancing of existing plants: Just 12 billion rupees was dedicated to new generation, all of it to just one state-backed plant in Uttar Pradesh.If you still think wind and solar are the energy sectors most dependent on state support, you’ve not been paying attention to how the landscape has changed. In India, 65% of funding to coal-fired projects in 2018 came from government-controlled institutions, whereas three-quarters of loans to renewables came from the private sector, according to the CFA. Even a six-fold increase in renewables subsidies to 150 billion rupees in 2018 left that sector shy of the 160 billion rupees directly supporting the coal mining and generation sector, according to a separate report last year.In truth, there’s not enough investment in either form of generation at the moment to make a sure-fire bet. Still, as we’ve argued, the collapse of financing for fossil fuels should give pause to anyone making bullish predictions for the future of carbon-intensive electricity, including the governments that are increasingly its main backers. Coal-fired power has long failed in terms of human health and climate impacts, but its raw economics are now collapsing, too. Even the might of the state can’t keep flogging this dead horse much longer.More: A burning question for coal’s brightest star Private investment fleeing coal in India, backing renewables insteadlast_img read more
