"I’ve spent my first year of the Grad scheme in the Office Agency team in the Glasgow office which I have really enjoyed. A main part of the job is building your network and getting to know other agents in the market meaning that it is very sociable. I have been involved in all aspects of Office Agency including designing marketing material for buildings, conducting viewings, issuing terms, negotiating terms and conducting searches for occupiers looking for space. My favourite part of the job is how varied it is, no two days are the same and this keeps it exciting and fun!
"I joined CBRE after completing my Masters in Real Estate at The University of Glasgow. Before this I did an undergraduate degree in Genetics and then worked for a year in Finance. I now feel that I have found a career that I am genuinely passionate about.
"Whilst studying for my Masters I joined the RICS Matrics committee which was great for getting to know people at a junior level in the profession. I have continued with this during my first year of work and is something that I would recommend to those starting out in the industry as it is great to have on your CV and is a way to get yourself known in the market. It is also really sociable and fun organising social and CPD events for Grads and newly qualified Surveyors. I have loved my first year at CBRE and I am excited for what the future holds."
