JLL on recruitment drive

The Manchester office of JLL has recruited two new consultants, increasing the size of its specialist teams in the North West.

Martin McGowan joins the building consultancy team as a surveyor. McGowan has five years' experience and joins from Dunlop Heywood where he acted as a project manager for clients including Speedy Hire.

There are now 14 people in valuations and 17 in building consultancy. Peter Lees, head of building consultancy, said: "We are actively looking to recruit even more of the best talent in the market as part of an ambitious growth strategy, leveraging off our ongoing successes in the office, residential and out of town retail markets."

In addition, the valuation advisory team has appointed graduate Robert Kos to support the JLL's valuation work for investors, developers and banks across the North West. Kos graduated from Sheffield Hallam in 2013 and has spent the past year in an asset management role at Smith Young, where his clients included British Land.

Tim Luckman, head of valuation advisory, said: "Robert joins us during a key period for the team. JLL's Manchester valuation team has advised on the majority of large transactions in the North West over the last 12 months. Given the increased activity in Manchester shows no sign of plateauing in the foreseeable future, we're continuing to search for new talent."

Do graduates not wear ties anymore?

Like in any job, you have to work your way up to a tie

…and an iron too.

I’m sure these are lovely lads and best of luck to them in their careers… But why do the press focus so much on appointments at commercial property agents? Why are surveyors deemed to be so much more important and interesting than any other built environment professional?

Maybe surveyors are just the best at promoting themselves…

Miffed. The focus on young property professionals could possibly be because this is a property themed website for professionals?
