Start Date
The apprenticeship will involve supporting the entire Cambridge Development Team in a wide range of interesting projects enabling the role to be varied or more specialist should the apprentice prefer. Innovative and proactive thinking would be required alongside a strong initiative and motivation to contribute to the team's success.

Day to day work would include collecting market data, preparing valuation reports, assisting on agency pitches and client presentations, preparing marketing material both for agency instructions and social media - e.g. blogs, research, PR etc, assisting with preparation of client reports and identifying new business opportunities. There will also be opportunity to be involved with graduate activities such as charity events, networking and sports.

The long term potential for the apprentice will be to undertake their APC and become an MRICS development surveyor themselves, having developed their skills working within a successful team. The individual would be client facing over time and therefore communication and interpersonal skills are very important. An enthusiastic, sociable and presentable individual is required.
