Colliers has broadened its ‘early careers’ programme this year to bolster the business’s intake of graduates and apprentices for 2021.
In line with its commitment to encourage greater diversity within the real estate sector and align the next generation of real estate professionals with future client needs, Colliers will welcome six non property professionals alongside 13 graduates and five apprentices in September. This 2021 intake is in addition to 23 deferred graduates and apprentices from our 2020 cohort who joined the business earlier this year.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming our next cohort of aspiring real estate professionals to Colliers this September and to broadening the opportunity for a career in real estate to school leavers and graduates from a range of backgrounds,” said Lydia Ings, HR Director for Colliers. “Our enhanced early careers programme complements our traditional graduate intake and widens the pool of talent available to us by focussing on the skills our industry needs both now, and in the future, recognising that you don’t necessarily have to have a degree in Real Estate to become a successful commercial property advisor.”
“These new pathways focuses on analytical and brokerage skills, attracting a more diverse pool of young professionals with experience in sales or professional services, for example. These transferable skills will be nurtured and developed here at Colliers to provide analytical support to our key capital markets and transactional teams, enhancing our overall service offering and adding greater value to our clients.”
