Yorkshire Post - Business - - COMMERCIAL PROPERTY -

FORTY-SEVEN GRAD­U­ATES and 14 ap­pren­tices have taken the first steps of their real es­tate ca­reers with prop­erty firm Cush­man & Wake­field.

Four of the new grad­u­ates Cather­ine Kopec, Harry Fin­ney, Jenna Hull and Tom Erxleben – joined the firm’s Leeds of­fice, based in St Paul’s House, Park Square.

The grad­u­ates will work to­wards their Assess­ment of Pro­fes­sional Com­pe­tence (APC) qual­i­fi­ca­tions with RICS as part of a struc­tured five-year pro­gramme, in­clud­ing study­ing part-time for a BSc Real Es­tate qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

The new join­ers, se­lected from around 1,000 ap­pli­cants, spent their in­duc­tion week em­bark­ing on a sched­ule of talks, work­shops and ac­tiv­i­ties.

Keith Hard­man, head of Cush­man & Wake­field’s Leeds of­fice, said: “We’re de­lighted to wel­come Cather­ine, Harry, Jenna and Tom to the Leeds of­fice.

“They join as part of an­other sub­stan­tial in­take of tal­ented and en­thu­si­as­tic new grad­u­ates and ap­pren­tices this year.

“The progress made by our pre­vi­ous in­take bodes well for them, as does the very high APC suc­cess rate we’ve con­sis­tently achieved.”

Kirsty Ban­ner­man, early ca­reer de­vel­op­ment man­ager at Cush­man & Wake­field, added: “Our pro­grammes en­sure each in­di­vid­ual takes on re­spon­si­bil­ity for their own work, with ap­pro­pri­ate sup­port, and is given the chance to make an ac­tive con­tri­bu­tion right from the start.”
