Petty’s Nurture the Property Talent of the Future!

We’ve has been doing our bit to nurture the property professionals of tomorrow by hosting 15 year old, Fraser Parker-Knapper, a year 10 pupil at St Christopher’s C of E High School.

Fraser joined the team for two weeks as part of the school’s work experience programme and the time spent with us has offered Fraser the chance to gain an insight into the diverse range of areas we cover including lettings and residential sales as well as time spent with the commercial team, covering everything from accounting to valuations.

Fraser said: “I’ve always liked the idea of a career in the property industry and was keen to find out more about what it might involve. Being familiar with the Petty’s brand in our local area, when our work experience placements came up, I knew straightaway that I wanted to do mine with them! I’ve learnt loads from spending time with each of the different teams and it’s definitely got me thinking about the area I’d like to work in when I finish school.”

Our Burnley Practice Manager, John Phillips added “At Petty’s, we pride ourselves on getting the best out of our team and know the value of investing in it, so when the opportunity to help support young interest in our industry came up we jumped at it. Experience is key to getting on the career ladder, and our aim was to give Fraser a broad introduction to this varied industry and we hope he has gained some new skills to take away with him.”
