New hot seat appointments for RICS matrics Greater Manchester


Manchester, 16th August 2013 - Georgina Rose, a surveyor at Jones Lang LaSalle in Manchester has been selected as the new Chair of RICS matrics Greater Manchester, whilst Anna Dooley of Knight Frank in the city has been appointed as Vice Chair.

RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) matrics Greater Manchester is a networking and support group for surveying students, trainees and those with less than ten years surveying experience.

Georgina RosePreviously the Vice Chair of the group for the past year, Georgina - who works within the valuation department at Jones Lang LaSalle - has proved to be a valuable asset, helping to organise many large-scale events and projects. These include the group’s Sumer Ball and the coordination of local low-cost seminars to help surveyors with their ongoing professional development.

Before becoming Vice Chair, Anna - who is currently undertaking her APC (Assessment of Professional Competence) to become a chartered surveyor - excelled as a member of the group’s committee, helping to organise social events and providing her expertise and knowledge with members.

Chair of RICS Greater Manchester, Georgina Rose says: “I’m delighted that I’ve been appointed as Chair and Anna has been selected as Vice Chair. Anna and I will be looking to help engage young people with the profession as a potential career path at both school and further education levels. We are also in the process of finalising our activities for autumn and winter, which will be based around valuable feedback we’ve had, so we are hoping to see even more professionals at our events in the future.”

As part of her new role, Georgina will ensure the committee regularly meets with students at local universities to offer support to those about to make the transition from student to surveyor. She and the committee will also plan a wide range of affordable social and professional development events and activities, as well as new member receptions, which offer vital support and information to recently qualified surveyors.

Starting in early September, the group will host six seminars on a variety of topics at the DWF offices in Manchester. They also have a New Members Reception planned for October to welcome graduates and newly chartered surveyors to the area, as well as an inter-professional quiz night planned to take place in November.
