What made you decide on a career in property?

Growing up around development sites, I was always fascinated seeing the site progress and how that one site ties in all aspects of the business to produce the final product. I knew I wanted to be part of that process; I just wasn’t sure which area. I therefore decided to go for an apprenticeship in property and find out.

Apprentice Surveyor – Commercial Practice

I have always been a practical learner, and after finishing my A-levels I wanted to learn on the job rather than from a textbook. My apprenticeship has given me the skills, knowledge and confidence to succeed in the property industry.
