e.surv boosts numbers with new graduates
The first group of 23 graduates were presented with new Mini Coopers to be used in their roles supporting the surveying workforce, at the BMW training centre in Reading.
Richard Sexton, business development director at e.surv, said: “e.surv manages more valuation work in the UK than any other surveyors and we’ve seen a huge pick-up in activity this year.
“Bringing more graduates on board is part of our response to ensuring our clients’ needs are met.”
The graduates will now undertake a year-long development programme with a subsequent placement as a qualified valuer for successful candidates as part of e.surv’s response to sustained higher activity levels.
Recruits will be mentored and gain experience across all areas of the surveying business including working along the core workforce as well as in administrative functions and a further 30 graduates join the business in October.
Peter Bolton King, global residential director at RICS, said: “e.surv are fostering the next generation of surveying talent and there is a real atmosphere of excitement in the industry.
“Activity is picking up and the market is beginning to return to good health. The industry has been squeezed in recent years but this goes to show that the energy to expand is still there.”
