Work experience pays off as Isabelle joins John Truslove

Isabelle Ellis is proof positive that work experience can pay off. After working at John Truslove Chartered Surveyors &Valuers THREE times during her studies she has been appointed a graduate surveyor at the Redditch firm. She joins the firm in a full time role after completing a BSc (Hons) in Property Finance and Investment at Nottingham Trent University. A local to Redditch, she attended the nearby Trinity High School, close to John Truslove’s Redditch office, and has always lived locally. Ben Truslove, joint managing director of John Truslove, said: “Isabelle joins John Truslove and comes highly recommended – by us! “We were impressed by her enthusiasm and her interest in all aspects of commercial property. She completed her degree in a very timely fashion, just as we were looking to expand. “As a graduate surveyor, she will be involved in all areas of the business, helping Ian Parker and me on both the agency and professional side of the business and will assisting our commercial property management manager Nina Bott with this growing area of our company.” Joint managing director Ian Parker, who also joined the firm 23 years ago after a period of work experience, said: “It is rare to know so much about a job applicant when you are interviewing for a new post, but we already knew Isabelle’s approach to the business and she had demonstrated her commitment by working with us three times as a teenager.” She said: “While I have grown up involved in commercial property development, Ian and Ben were good enough to give me work experience on the professional side of the industry, which is not always easy to find, and when I qualified I was very pleased they were able to offer me a role. “I look forward to growing into that role as John Truslove continues to expand.” Established in 1981, John Truslove is widely recognised as Worcestershire’s leading independent commercial property agency, instructed by clients ranging from private investors and owner directors to multi-national property investment funds.
