Award winning commercial agents recruits trainee surveyor

Calling in to see his grandmother at work on the way home from school has led to a first job for trainee surveyor James Haynes.

He has joined Redditch-based chartered surveyors and valuers John Truslove where his grandmother Barbara Coleman worked for many years.

He said: “I have always known John Truslove as a business and the property market fascinates me. It was an easy decision to look for a job in my home town, and I was delighted when Ian Parker and Ben Truslove offered me a job.”

He will be working part-time while studying and plans to enrol at Birmingham City University in September where he will work towards a Real Estate degree.

Joint managing director Ben Truslove said: “James attended RSA Academy Arrow Vale High School and has always lived in Redditch, so he knows our core market very well.”

“We have been so used to seeing him in the office that it wasn’t a hard decision to offer him a place with John Truslove while he studies for his degree over the next few years.”

James said: “I feel like John Truslove is a company where I could really grow while being surrounded by a great team, and it will be great to be trained towards becoming a chartered surveyor by two mentors such as Ian and Ben.”

Established 40 years ago, John Truslove has grown over the years to become the market leading independent agent for commercial property in Worcestershire and North Warwickshire as well as the wider West Midlands.
