Lambert Smith Hampton has recruited 10 graduates to its Manchester office from the latest academic year, taking the total number of graduates on its two-year rotation programme to 16.
According to LSH, 16 is the largest number of graduates that it has ever supported in Manchester.
The surge in graduate recruitment comes during a period of expansion for the consultancy, which earlier this year acquired ES Group and Manchester-based retail specialist Tushingham Moore.
The amalgamation of the three businesses has seen LSH’s Manchester team grow to more than 130.
Abid Jaffry, head of office at LSH, said: “The North West is a region of significant prospects and to fully capitalise on the opportunity it is important that we are leading the way in developing the next generation of property stars.
“We have an enviable pool of very talented graduates and we take their career development very seriously. We want them to be the best of the best as it underpins our sustained growth in the region.”
