NG Offers Chance to More Young Property Talent
20th July 2018
Nottingham-based commercial property specialists NG Chartered Surveyors have expanded their team again with the addition of Charlotte Steggles during her placement year.
Charlotte, who plays football for Leicester City Ladies, is a second-year student studying BSc (Hons) Real Estate at Nottingham Trent University. She has plans to become a chartered surveyor after graduating.
“I chose NG as they specialise in the markets that appeal to me and they have a great reputation within the Midlands area. By having a relatively small team, they offer a personal experience to clients. For me personally, this was a major appeal, as I did not want to go into a big company where I would feel lost and would not be given opportunities to learn and develop.
“After meeting the team, this was something that was made evident to me and it showed that they cared for my development on a personal level and I felt like I was joining part of the team. Other students had recommended NG as a company that creates a learning environment and gives you the opportunity to thrive.”
Charlotte will use her time with NG to put into practice skills she has learned over the past two years at university.
“Hopefully I will be exposed to the different specialisms, offering me the chance to gain experience within different areas, allowing me to find out my strengths and weaknesses and develop in these roles. I also want to gain the skills that cannot be taught in lectures, and being around such experienced people, I know I will be learning a lot.”
Sunny Landa, director at NG, will be mentoring Charlotte over the year. Sunny joined NG straight from university, so he understands the challenges and opportunities facing Charlotte.
“NG has a reputation for nurturing the best talent in the East Midlands, and we want to try and replicate that with Charlotte. We realised immediately that her knowledge and passion for property matched our own, and we’re really looking forward to working with her over the next 12 months. This is a great opportunity for her to learn “on the tools” – one I’m sure she’ll grasp with both hands.”
The team at NG has already made an impression on Charlotte. Saying that they were a “special group”, she said:
“After meeting Sunny, he made it clear to me that NG have high expectations and this is something that I will aim towards and want to make the most out of, during my time with the company.
After finishing her placement year with NG, Charlotte will return to Nottingham Trent University and finish her final year. Once graduated, she will be working towards her APC and then aim to become a chartered surveyor.
