PREMIER GUARANTEE WELCOMES FOUR NEW GRADUATES
Tuesday, 12 February 2013
Premier Guarantee, the Birkenhead-based warranty provider, has welcomed the first four young people on to its graduate training scheme.
Jade Parry, Laura Cherrington, Tom Shaw and Amar Chavda will now begin a two-year course which has been developed to support opportunities for young people in Merseyside as well as promoting skills and training across the industry.
Designed to strengthen Premier Guarantee's extensive surveyor network, the new scheme trains graduates to Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) standards though a dedicated training plan.
Throughout the two-year development plan, graduates must complete a final submission document, a 3000 word critical analysis document regarding a project they’ve worked on during the scheme and also pass an interview with a panel of Assessment of Professional Competence assessors. Successful graduates will become Chartered and be offered a job at Premier Guarantee.
Richard Smith, Head of Technical Services at Premier Guarantee, commented: “Our Graduate Training Scheme has been developed with the aim of creating an organic structure to ensure we cultivate the best warranty and building control surveyors for the future.
“From our perspective, it is very exciting to be welcoming each of the graduates into the business and we expect them to play a key role in the long-term development of Premier Guarantee.
“Candidates for the scheme have been selected through a rigorous interview and presentation process which we're confident will allow us to uncover the very best talent in the UK.
“We employ over 180 people at the Birkenhead head office in the Shore Lines Building and are looking forward to attracting many more good people into the business in the coming years through a sustainable graduate recruitment scheme.”
Frank Field, MP for Birkenhead, has welcomed the new starts and has also praised Premier Guarantee for introducing its graduate programme.
He said: “This is a wonderful initiative and one which I hope heralds a new trend in graduate opportunities in Birkenhead and then across the country.”
