Platinum Properties are an independent award winning lettings and property management specialists. Find out how they have been quick to leverage apprentices to help develop their team and grow the business.


Background:

Platinum Properties are independent award winning lettings and property management specialists located in the heart of the historic City of Ely. Maria Morgan started Platinum 5 years ago, bringing her extensive local knowledge and industry experience gained over the prior 20 years to the fore, truly believing that Platinum would set the benchmark for service in their field.

Platinum Properties have been quick to leverage apprentices to help develop their team and grow the business and have already employed two apprentices in their five years of business. Alycia joined Platinum Properties as an apprentice 4 years ago and, following the success of the training and benefits to the business, the company is looking to take on more apprentices in the future.

Training and Qualifications:

Platinum Properties has used local training providers, Cambridge Regional College and 3aaa, to support their NVQ Business Administration apprenticeships.

Why employ an apprentice? 

“Apprenticeships have proven to be of benefit for number of reasons. It has given the apprentice the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in a busy office environment, allowed them to grow their communication skills and confidence, achieve a qualification and build effective working relationships with others.
 

From the perspective of the business this has provided us a review mechanism for our business training as they learn our policies and procedures and given us a fresh set of youthful eyes. This contributes to ways we can change business practices and has provided us with a long serving committed member of the team.”

 

Maria Morgan, Managing Director, Platinum Properties.
