With our help, Bothams Mitchell Slaney Estate Agents in Chesterfield have expanded their workforce through hiring an apprentice, Shani Thompson. Bothams now has a very valued member of staff and Shani is well on her way to a continued career within the property sector.
After completing her GCSEs, Shani explored apprenticeship options, attracted by the opportunity to gain paid employment while continuing her studies. She successfully completed a year's apprenticeship and attained an NVQ2 in Retail and Customer Services. This role did not develop into a permanent position. Undeterred, Shani followed her interest in property and gained a further apprenticeship with Bothams Mitchell Slaney Estate Agents as a receptionist in the residential sales department.
Shani has embraced the many challenges that the world of property sales has presented to her: improving her communication, IT and team working skills whilst learning the sometimes complex and often time-pressured process of buying and selling a home.
Shani has now secured a permanent post as sales adviser with Botham's Residential Sales Team and is looking to continue her studies with the National Association of Estate Agents. Her next goal is to achieve this industry recognised professional qualification.
Shani says: "The amazing support I have had throughout the apprenticeship from both my DACES tutor and work colleagues has been invaluable in my achieving this qualification."
