Pupils learned about the commercial property sector and the many rewarding career opportunities available in the industry. They were given advice on how to become chartered surveyors and the important part surveyors play in the success of the property sector.
Adam Ramshaw, head of office at LSH in Birmingham, said: “It is a pleasure to be able to support such an important initiative. We are determined to encourage young people from all backgrounds to consider a career in commercial property.
“As a company, we believe it is our responsibility to provide great career opportunities to young, enthusiastic people who are dedicated to building a career in the industry. Young Enterprise enables us to take our message directly into the classroom in the hope that we can demonstrate to pupils that they should consider surveying and other property-related careers when it comes to making important choices in their education.”
Among the business mentors taking part from LSH were Daniel Taylor, Alice Fitton, Richard Jones. Fay Cavey-Wilcox, Amy Haywood, Louise Lokucewicz and Alice Pritchett
The Young Enterprise Employability Masterclasses encourage young people to build an understanding of entrepreneurship and employment and enable students to develop teamwork, communication and presentation skills. By bringing in volunteers from business, pupils get an informed view of the attitudes and skills that need to succeed in the world of work.
Michael Mercieca, Chief Executive, Young Enterprise, said: “We are delighted to be in partnership with Lambert Smith Hampton. Their support means that we can reach young people in Birmingham to offer not only business experience and advice, but positive role models from their own community.”
