Matt joined Burlington’s Graduate Programme after completing his degree in Architectural Technology at The University of Westminster. Matt explains that his reason for choosing to join Burlington “After completing my degree, I knew that a graduate scheme would be a great opportunity as it allows me the chance to progress through a company whilst completing training and learning on the job. Burlington in particular stood out to me as it was obvious during the interview process that they cared about every individual employee and progressing them through the business.”
The programme works on ensure that graduates are fully immersed within the day to day running and understand the different aspects of the business. Matt explains: “No day is the same. I get to understand how leases work within leasehold property as well as being directly involved in some complex management projects.”
Formal training is held regularly by the Head of Property, part of the programme includes preparing the Graduates to achieve their IRPM qualification. Matt has recently taken his IRPM exam ‘Working collaboratively as part of a team has enabled me to gain a broad understanding from all of the property team who all working of different projects .’
Matt will receive his results in the summer and hopes to be a qualified property manager on completion of the programme. Matt explained “I am really looking forward to completing this programme and building my career within the sector and Burlington’s, hopefully managing my own buildings and eventually my own team. I would highly recommend this programme to other graduates, it has been really enjoyable and I look forward to the future.”
