Ed Hughes Work Experience Blog

ED WORK EXPERIENCE BLOG

Friday, 03 July 2015

My name’s Ed Hughes, I go to Ipswich School where I have just completed by GCSE’s. I applied for work experience at Whybrow as I believed it would help to further my understanding of the property management and agency business. Though unsure of a particular career choice, Chartered Surveying stood out to me as something which could be a possibility for future employment.

Having been introduced to all the friendly staff by Laura, I began Monday sorting files and scanning, whilst the staff helped explain to me their roles. I also visited properties in the local area, in Colchester and Clacton, here I saw the obvious benefits of property management as it allows people to get out of the office, some more often than others. On Wednesday I was introduced to the property management system by Coralie, and a few hours of research later, I had managed to file about 4 files, although this allowed me to understand the work of the agency team. Throughout the week I listened to many phone calls, therefore grasping the social side and the importance of personal and working relationships with clients. On Friday I spent time with Laura at reception, doing jobs for her such as using social media, and managing the office and the staff.

Work experience with Whybrow Chartered Surveyors enabled me to appreciate the work they do, the staff really helped me learn about the business and it was a great experience to work in an office for a week, even if I did want to go to the beach on the hottest day of the year, and it gave me a clearer idea of what career I would ideally like to pursue in the future.
