“We’ve had lots of good news in the past year with several of our employees achieving Chartered Surveyors status with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and other professional qualifications, and we are very proud of our staff for all their achievements.

“Our commitment to developing our employees is one of the main reasons for us winning Employer of the Year at the recent St Neots Awards, and it’s fantastic to see this recognised.

“We wish James the very best of luck with the next stage of his academic journey.”
