Training & development

Regular training

Our people are our greatest asset so we put significant emphasis on our training and development programmes, investing and supporting employees’ growth to achieve the industry-recognised qualifications.


We are keen for as many of our staff as possible to gain an industry-recognised qualification once they have an appropriate level of experience. We require all staff who wish to progress to Senior Consultant level to hold the ARLA or NAEA Level 3 Technical Award. Once you have been with the company around 9 months, we will support you in achieving this, by supplying the study material you will need and paying for you to sit your exams. We also arrange for an ARLA trainer to come in to deliver a companion training session on a regular basis.

Development and Progression

With strong performance against target, evaluated during regular appraisals, and completion of the ARLA or NAEA qualification, employees can expect to achieve promotion to Senior Sales or Lettings Consultant, with an enhanced basic and commission package. For those progressing to become Sales or Lettings Managers, a team management training follows. We are proud of our track record in developing staff up from junior to management level –  just look at how some of our team have progressed.
