Long-standing Beresfords Employee Transitions into Surveying Role

By Mel Cindil - 28 February 2023

An employee at our award-winning property group has progressed through the ranks after starting as an apprentice and has now take a new position as trainee surveyor.

Shaun Bull has become an integral part of the business after 12 years of service as an assistant manager – and following his ambition to explore the world of surveying – he was offered the opportunity to train as a chartered surveyor with one of our acquired businesses, Cheke & Co.

Celebrating 150 years in business this year, Cheke & Co is one of the most established surveying practices in the South East of England, working for private clients as well as many of the UK’s major lenders.

Following the successful transition, we are launching a fast-track management programme to upskill managers and leaders who are seeking a career within the property sector.

The programme has been designed for experienced people managers and those in leadership roles who have previously worked within a target-driven sales environment and are looking for a change. As well as receiving expert training, the initiative provides excellent earning potential alongside other benefits such as a company car, a profit share scheme and a relocation allowance.

Shaun Bull, trainee surveyor at Cheke & Co, said: “I’ve always had an interest in the surveying side of property, it goes hand in hand with my previous role, so I was delighted when I was offered a trainee position.

“Changing career paths has been really seamless as I had a long-standing relationship with the business. It was reassuring to know the people I would be working for and that the values would remain the same.

“I’d like to say thank you to the directors for providing me with this fantastic opportunity, for their continued support, and how accommodating they have been throughout. I look forward to my future at Cheke & Co and qualifying as a RICS associate chartered surveyor.”

Paul Beresford, our CEO, said: “I am thrilled we are able to give Shaun the opportunity to further his career ambitions, while remaining an employee under the Beresfords group umbrella. I look forward to seeing him thrive in his new role.

“We pride ourselves on retaining and developing our team members, from apprentices right through to branch assistant managers, which is why we have decided to launch our new and exciting fast-track programme. This will offer individuals the chance to join one of the most progressive property groups in the South East and will provide the development and training to enable them to move into enjoyable and financially rewarding roles.”
