Charlie Newton

Placement Surveyor Leeds

I am currently studying BSc (Hons) Real Estate at Sheffield Hallam University and have just finished my 12- month placement at James A Baker working in the Leeds office. Working at James A Baker has hugely benefitted me by shaping my interests for my future career path, the independent work load I was given while working under the guidance of several chartered surveyors and associate directors allowed me to gain a wide range of experience and develop several crucial skills, which I can apply to what I have learnt at university to date.

I was also given thorough mentoring with regards to my APC, with the company arranging for me to attend an ‘Understanding the APC’ training course, along with having regular meetings with a number of qualified colleagues to discuss and work through my final submission.

Additionally, James A Baker was great at getting me involved with client development and networking, allowing me to broaden my contacts whilst growing my experience as a working surveyor. Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the team and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to undertake a placement year.

Agency Surveyor Bath - UCEM Pathway

I am currently working in the Bath office as a trainee surveyor and I chose to study with The College of Estate Management due to its flexible mode of study and the fact the courses are RICS-accredited. I am currently studying BCs (Hons) Real Estate Management, which allowed me to carry on working whilst earning a full time wage and gain relevant experience on the job to support my course yet still continue to study to achieve a degree. The online learning offers support from tutors and webinars as well as arranging the course into manageable size chunks to assist with your learning. The company has supported me whilst working and studying and I feel that I am  putting the theory to practical use.
