Leading property consultancy welcomes record number of graduates

A leading property consultancy has shown its commitment to the next generation of talent by welcoming a record number of graduates into the business.

Fisher German has hired 34 graduates this year, along with 10 staff on placement, across its 27 offices around the country in a range of disciplines.

The firm is making a concerted effort to find young talent and bring them through the company, which includes hiring graduates from all sorts of backgrounds.

One such graduate is Rachel Cornthwaite, who is working within Fisher German’s agribusiness department after a background working on livestock farms in Cumbria.

After studying at Harper Adams University, Rachel joined Fisher German on an eight-week placement at its office in Market Harborough within the agribusiness team during her studies.

Rachel impressed so much during her placement that she was offered a full-time role after she graduated.

She said:

“I started with Fisher German on placement and from the start I was welcomed as a proper member of the team and was encouraged to get involved.

“The team were so supportive, and I was able to gain great insight into the arable side of agribusiness that I simply hadn’t experienced in Cumbria.

“When I was offered the job, it meant my final year at university did not have as much stress as it might have done.

“Now I’ve started work with Fisher German, it’s just as varied as I remember. I’m working with all sorts of clients across Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, and Rutland.

“I really think I’ve made the right decision to work for Fisher German and I’m looking forward to developing my career with them over the coming years.”

Andrew Bridge, Managing Partner at Fisher German, started as a graduate himself before working his way up to the top of the firm and has always encouraged staff to realise their ambitions at the company.

He said:

“At Fisher German, we are committed to improving our colleagues’ career prospects by offering clear pathways for progression and supporting them with important qualifications.

“I know first-hand that you can go far at Fisher German if you put the work in, and this is still true today.

“If graduates have the drive and the attitude to succeed, they will do so at Fisher German, and our record intake this year underlines our commitment to nurturing the next generation of talent.”
