James Roberts

Congratulations to James Roberts, who recently passed his AssocRICS assessment; a key stage in the journey to becoming a RICS Registered Valuer.

James has worked hard to study for the assessment, and is well on his way to the next stage, which should take a couple of months.

The overall aim is for James to progress towards MRICS – Chartered Valuation Surveyor. This will involve another Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) following a further years’ experience.

Upon joining Lea Hough in early 2019, James had a good breadth and depth of experience in property valuations, having worked at a regional estate agency where he regularly undertook valuation work across the North West. However, James wanted to attain formal qualification in this area – something that Lea Hough were keen to support.

Paul Dignan, Partner, said:

“Having a direction is something that many young people are keen to have in the early stages of their career – and this is something we, as a firm, have recognised and committed to.

“We currently have six members of the team studying for professional qualifications – something that involves not only the experience and knowledge gained whilst ‘on-the-job’, but also study outside of working hours.

“We’re very proud of each and every qualification we see our trainees attain and of the reputation our training programmes are gaining in the sector.”

Lea Hough has an RICS approved Structured Training Plan and we offer full support in training for Graduate Surveyors who are working towards their RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC), to become AssocRICS, MRICS Chartered Surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers.

In addition, Lea Hough are also able to offer mock APC interviews for APC candidates from other firms who are about to sit their RICS Assessment of Professional Competence. This is something that assists younger surveyors in the industry, helping them to achieve their MRCIS qualification.
