Having joined FHP Property Consultants approximately two months ago, I can truly say that I have loved every minute. After leaving Ratcliffe College, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in commercial property, and I am now starting my degree apprenticeship course in Real Estate at Nottingham Trent University. This gives me the opportunity to learn and study whilst gaining valuable hands-on experience in the workplace. I will be working 4 days per week at FHP with 1 day spent at university.
At first, I didn’t know what to expect, but the support and kindness of everyone here has helped me settle in very easily. Within my first two months, I have been working alongside Darran Severn and Corbin Archer based in our Derby office learning the ins and outs of the commercial property world. I will be working with the Office and industrial team but also assist the Retail team to greater my knowledge. I will be able to take the skills and information learned from FHP Property Consultants into lectures and vice versa.
No two days are the same. I can be out taking photos, carrying out viewings, inspecting properties, ordering marketing boards or writing press releases. I’ve already learnt how to measure units on both a GIA and NIA basis which is essential in this job.
The first property I visited was 4 Riverside Court, on Pride Park, where I met potential tenants who had an interest in renting the property. I thoroughly enjoy ringing potential occupiers as I can discuss their needs, offer suggestions on potential units we have to let and meeting them there for a viewing. So far, I have pleasingly managed to agree a set of heads of terms and place two industrial/warehouse units at Amber Business Centre under offer.
