Cushman and Wakefield

Through a partnership forged by one of our Employability and Partnership Coordinators we were able to offer a Level 3 Built Environment student a 1 week placement with a large property company, Cushman & Wakefield.  The student had the fantastic opportunity to experience work within different departments including; investment, retail, building surveying, offices, industrial and residential. This gave the student a full insight into the industry and supported his own progression planning.  In each of these settings, the student was working alongside professionals within their field and experiencing the industry first hand.

The student told us:

 “The placement was organised very well and it has encouraged me to pursue my chosen career path in architecture. I would highly recommend future students to get work experience at Cushman & Wakefield as there is a good diversity of people who make you feel like you belong there.“

Our employer partner told us:

“In all instances, the student came across in a very professional manner and he explained himself in a confident and articulate manner. This was evident from the enthusiasm to learn from the week experience and ask as many questions as necessary. Cushman & Wakefield will be working with The Manchester College learners to offer work experience in the new year.”
