The latest hire for Eddisons in Cambridge is the office’s first recruit through the Government-backed Building Surveying Degree Apprenticeship Scheme.

Alex Benn, who formerly worked in the hospitality sector, enrols on the scheme and begins his programme of combined work and study this September after onboarding through a part time-internship at the Cambridge office in the summer.

Affiliated to Anglia Ruskin University (ARU), Alex will study for just under five years in total, weighted to two days studying per week at ARU’s Chelmsford Campus for the first year, reducing to one in the following years of the degree programme.

On completion of the apprenticeship degree scheme, Alex will be a fully qualified and accredited member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Although mainly based at the Cambridge office, in experiencing the full range of Eddisons’ professional property disciplines Alex will travel across the country to gain the widest possible knowledge of the firm’s expertise.

Welcoming Alex to Eddisons, Ben Green, Director & Head of the Cambridge office, said, “The Building Surveying Degree Apprenticeship Scheme offers a new recruitment pathway for us.

“We see it working in tandem with the more conventional graduate recruitment schemes.

However, with a shrinking demographic from which to recruit bright, new, young talent, it’s incumbent upon the profession to use as many routes as possible to attract, retain and reward the next generation of property professionals.
