An award-winning chartered surveyors and estate agents is developing future talent in the property industry, appointing six new members across its services as part of its strategic growth drive.

Bradley Hall, which has seven offices across the North, has appointed Northumbria University Students Matthew Redfern, Matt Jackson and Oliver Bartles-Smith. The placement students have joined following two years of the Real Estate Management degree, which encourages a placement year to gain real working experience whilst also earning.

Appointments also include Lesley Parry and Rebecca Scott to its mortgages team and graduate building surveyor Liam Grist.

Neil Hart, group managing director said: “We are delighted to have added to the team and to be investing in the future of the property industry. Within the last few weeks we have welcomed a range of new additions to our company, including those with experience but also those who are new to the sector.

“We have created a safe environment in order to introduce our entire team back to office working, which ensures that we are delivering the best possible service to our clients. The property industry is a sector which forms the foundations of local economy, feeding into and supporting a variety of businesses which ultimately provide opportunities and jobs for our communities.

“It is important that local businesses, like ours, do all we can to return to a productive working environment during this unprecedented time. Failure to do so will negatively impact bars, restaurants, retail and public transport. We all need to take responsibility, be innovative and step up to protect the future of our economy.”

The firm is also set to expand its property management and its marketing team, with recruitment underway to welcome further members to the business.

Bradley Hall’s Leeds operation will welcome a new chartered surveyor to the team in October following a successful launch phase for the firm.

“It is essential that new recruits to the industry gain the right support and guidance, and we are dedicated to ensuring that our new team members receive the best advice while benefiting from an environment in which they can learn and grow.

“There are many senior members of our team who started as placement students and worked their way up within the company, including myself. As the company grows, so do the opportunities, and I look forward to seeing each of our new members progress.

“We are passionate about spending time in introducing new talent to the industry, retaining dedicated and brilliant people within the North whilst also providing exciting opportunities whilst training and supporting them throughout their career progression.

“The residential market is booming and our activity in mortgages grows week on week thanks to the quality of our team. The knowledge, expertise and support of our longstanding members will provide outstanding foundations for our new recruits to learn from.”
