Rendall & Rittner has signed five apprentices for its pilot group of the first Government Apprenticeship in Housing and Property Management. The apprentices visited their head office and met directors during National Apprenticeship Week.
Rendall & Rittner championed apprenticeships through the Trailblazer scheme and formed a collaboration group combining Catch 22, the Institute of Residential Property Management (IRPM) and the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH).
Four apprentices have now been employed for the London area and one for their Northern division, based in Manchester.
Apprentice Raima Begum, 19, said, “I have wanted to work in the property industry for some time and to find out that I have been selected to work for Rendall & Rittner is overwhelming. It seems like such a great place to work and I am excited to learn while working.”
Richard Daver, Managing Director added, “The housing and property management industry will benefit hugely from the launch of this Level 3 apprenticeship Pilot Scheme. It’s vital that young people are offered alternative and effective ways of learning industry standard practices, while earning and gaining a qualification. We are very excited to have selected a new wave of young talent.”
