Chartered surveyor status achieved after passing the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ APC examination.

Three graduates at the Manchester office of Colliers International have gained chartered surveyor status following success in the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Assessment of Professional Competence (APC).

Folu Aladelusi, Nathan Khanverdi and Cameron Reekie were among eleven Colliers International graduates who were successful in the Spring APC.

Folu, a surveyor in the Valuation and Advisory Services team, joined the global real estate advisor in September 2017 as part of the graduate intake after gaining a BA Hons in Town and Country Planning at the University of Manchester. He also combined working with studying to gain an MSc in Real Estate from the University College of Estate Management (UCEM) in 2019.

Nathan is a surveyor in the Industrial & Logistics team. He has an undergraduate degree in International Business, Finance and Economics from the University of Manchester and a Masters degree in Real Estate from the University College of Estate Management, for which he studied while working.

Cameron, who joined the Manchester office of Colliers International in September 2017, is a surveyor in the Project & Building Consultancy team. He has a BSc Hons in Building Surveying from Northumbria University.

Peter Gallagher, head of the Manchester office of Colliers International, said: “The APC is an extremely demanding test of the skills required to be a chartered surveyor, and I am delighted three graduates in the Manchester office have been successful in the Spring APC.

“This very much underlines the quality of training that they have received at Colliers, and their success is a well-deserved outcome for the dedication they have shown in working towards their APC examinations.”

Tony Horrell, the Chief Executive Officer of Colliers International for UK and Ireland, has praised the way in which the eleven Colliers International graduates achieved APC success during the challenging circumstances of the COVID-19 crisis.

“This is a huge achievement and a testament to their hard work – even more so given the different circumstances under which they took their assessment,” he said.

“At Colliers, we encourage our people to do their best work every day, and as part of this we place great importance upon professional standards.

“The success of our graduates reflects the way in which they have embraced this ethos, and have made the most of the opportunities available to them through our APC training programme. It also highlights the support that they have received from their colleagues during their APC journeys.”
