JLL adds young talent to Scottish business

Graduates to boost property giant's Glasgow and Edinburgh teams

SCOTLAND, 26 September 2016 - JLL has appointed two new graduate surveyors to its Edinburgh and Glasgow offices as part of its annual graduate recruitment programme, underlining its commitment to developing the next generation of property professionals.

Rhys Davies, an International Business graduate from Loughborough University joins JLL's Agency team in Edinburgh, while University of Aberdeen graduate Michael Brown continues his JLL career with Glasgow's Residential: Development Land team after spending last summer on JLL's work experience programme.

The two new starts bring the total number of staff based in Scotland to over 120.

JLL's popular graduate scheme offers a number of different opportunities for graduates and undergraduates, including sandwich placements for students undertaking a RICS accredited degree and JLL First, a two day workshop for first year students interested in a career in Real Estate and Building Surveying. The firm has worked hard in recent years to raise the profile of the property sector to those who wouldn't necessarily have had the industry on their career radar.

Alasdair Humphery, Lead Director at JLL in Scotland, said: "We're thrilled to welcome two extremely bright and promising graduates to join our offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh, where they'll be working across a range of specialisms and developing their own career paths. Each year we place a great deal of value on recruiting graduates in the knowledge that they bring real strengths to our business across Scotland. In Michael and Rhys we've secured two enthusiastic and ambitious graduates and I look forward to seeing their careers develop within JLL."
