May 2016 - Felicity Paddick, surveyor at St Neots surveying and planning firm Barford + Co, is celebrating achieving Chartered status with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Felicity, who has successfully passed the organisation’s Assessment of Professional Competence (APC), is now a fully-fledged Chartered Surveyor, becoming Felicity Paddick BSc (Hons) MRICS.

The APC is a rigorous process which assesses candidates throughout a lengthy training period, followed by a written submission and professional interview, to ensure they are operating to the highest industry standards. Felicity’s achievement comes hot on the heels of fellow Chartered Surveyor Mike Duncan’s APC qualification in 2015 and further increases the number of qualified Chartered Surveyors at Barford + Co.

As an organisation working under RICS guidelines, Barford + Co is fully committed to training and supporting its staff and the company has a 100% success rate over the past 25 years in progressing trainee and graduate surveyors to Chartered Surveyors.

Felicity joined Barford + Co in 2008 on work experience. Commenting on her achievement, she said: “I’m delighted to have achieved the APC; it’s something I’ve been working towards since completing my degree and Chartered status is a real mark of professional competence. Barford + Co have been really supportive in helping me qualify and I am grateful for them giving me the opportunity to progress my career”.

Phil Halmshaw, Director of Agency at Barford + Co, said: “On behalf of everyone at Barford + Co I’d like to offer my sincere congratulations to Felicity. Passing the APC is no easy task and Felicity has worked hard to achieve her Chartered status. We’re very proud to have maintained our 100% record in APC successes and as members of the RICS this success serves to demonstrate our professional competence as a company”.
