April was a busy month at Nick Tart’s, a previous employee Ann Widdowson, rejoining us at our newly opened Much Wenlock branch, Bridgnorth office having a work experience student; Billy Parker, and Telford Office announcing they are hiring an apprentice…it has been all go! So, let’s talk about all that has been happening!
We love to take on work experience students from local schools during their dedicated week of working in their GCSE years at school or in their school holidays. Most recently we have had a student from Oldbury Wells School working in our Bridgnorth branch. He approached us one Saturday morning with his CV in hand requesting some work experience as he felt it was a route he would want to pursue upon leaving school. How can you say no to enthusiasm like that! We invited him in during his Easter holiday break to work with Nick and the team for a few days.
Billy went out and accompanied the team on a viewing, a property ‘take on’ to get it ready for the open market, and valuation. The office also introduced Billy to some of the administration tasks involved with estate agency and spent time talking about the process from a seller and buyers point of view. When Billy left, he said that he had ‘really enjoyed the experience and the opportunity with Nick Tart’.
The day after Billy had finished his work experience, we received an email from him requesting more! We were more than delighted to take him up on his offer and show him more.
If you like the sound of the experience Billy had and would also like to apply for work experience, contact your local branch (Contact Us) with your CV and a bit about the sort of experience you would like and we will be sure to do our best to accommodate.
