Training pays off
Lawrence Pinder has become a full member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) by passing the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) training.
Lawrence works within the highly successful valuation department, based in the Manchester office. He joined us in 2013 after completing his degree in real estate at Sheffield Hallam University. He has gained experience in both the valuation and rating of commercial property within the region during his time with the firm.
Congratulating the successful candidate, Roy Tubman, head of the Manchester office, said: “Everyone at the firm is very pleased that Lawrence has successfully qualified as a chartered surveyor. He has proved himself throughout his training to be extremely capable and his performance has been outstanding. We look forward to seeing him further develop his career with us.
“Our latest APC candidates have all passed their RICS Assessment of Professional Competence on their first attempt which is also fantastic news and a further testament to the quality of work, training and experience they receive, which is something the entire firm is very proud of.”
The APC consists of a written submission and a professional interview. These take place after acquiring at least two years’ relevant experience and completing a structured training programme, which provides a broad range of experience across different disciplines and departments.
Here at Sanderson Weatherall, candidates prepare for the assessment by taking part in mock interviews and receiving advice from external consultants on presentation and interview skills.
Lawrence added: “I am so pleased to have passed my APC. It’s a weight off my shoulders for sure and I’m proud to become a member of the RICS. As an employer, Sanderson Weatherall has provided excellent support and training throughout the entire process. I’m looking forward to contributing further to the future success of the firm.”
