Graduate Rural Surveyor
What do you enjoy most about working for Bidwells?
I enjoy working at Bidwells firstly because of the great people I work alongside. Everyone is so friendly and supportive, answering any questions I have - no matter how stupid! Working in our new open plan offices means I can walk over and chat to specific teams within the business to ask any tricky questions, also the café and Xbox are welcome additions. There is a great social scene at Bidwells, so far this summer I’ve played cricket, football, hockey, netball, cycled 100 miles and competed in the Chariots of Fire relay race – everyone is encouraged to get involved!
What’s your biggest career achievement to date?
I have worked on all sorts of projects whilst at Bidwells which has seen me travel down to Kent and up to Cheshire working for large Institutional Investors, Charities and Colleges to smaller Private Clients. As soon as I started I was thrown in at the deep end, managing a farm with commercial, storage and agricultural tenants and all the issues that come with them! I am currently in the process of managing three cottage refurbishments which although is a big learning curve will be very rewarding once complete and let.
