Meet Sarah James

Published on: 19th March 2018 Sarah James joined our Newcastle property management team almost two years ago in July 2016. Following International Womans Day earlier this month we sat down with her to find out a little bit about how she got into surveying as a profession and what she would change as a female working in the property sector. How did you get into surveying as a profession? I was attracted to the Business Property Management degree at University as it had both a business and property focus and offered a career direction into surveying.  The topics covered on the course were varied and interesting, as well as being accredited by the RICS.  Following a placement year at DTZ in Leeds in 2001, I was eager to complete my degree and return to work to become Chartered.  I qualified at City of York Council before moving to Donaldsons in Leeds, which was then acquired by DTZ and took me in a full circle to where I began. I moved to Newcastle in 2011 which is a great city to live and work. What would you change as a female working in the property sector?

Using space differently – how venues in the North East are setting themselves apart

Published on: 15th March 2018 The North East’s leisure sector is currently thriving, with a number of venues opening over the past 12 months’ competition is reaching unparalleled levels. In recent years, the North East has been spoilt for choice when it comes to alternative venues and this is meaning that now, more than ever, operators are having to set themselves apart from the competition. It is becoming more apparent that when Consumers go out, they don’t just want to go out for a drink they want an alternative offer to keep them coming back. A snapshot of this change in consumer perceptions is evident when looking at Newcastle’s top 10 night life venues on Trip Advisor. Of the 10 venues there are three ‘traditional’ pubs or bars and then a cabaret club, comedy club, brewery, casino, pool hall and two live music venues.

Meet Ceri Hartnell

Published on: 13th March 2018 Ceri works in our Leeds property management team having started at Sanderson Weatherall just over three years ago.  Last week we sat down with Ceri to find out a little bit about what made her choose surveying as a profession and if there is anything she'd change as a female working in the industry. How did you get into surveying as a profession? I undertook work experience in a mixed surveying practice in Berwick upon Tweed. After trying all aspects available I decided rural or building surveying wasn’t going to be my bag but I really enjoyed the commercial side so with the help of a friend already studying surveying at Northumbria I started to apply for estate management degrees, I undertook a placement year in Leeds and enjoyed it so much I knew I was on the right career track and haven’t looked back since.
