Roy Albert Cs

With support from my colleagues and the organisation I’ve worked my way up from rent officer to Chartered Surveyor and completed a degree in Estates Management. I was even helped with phone calls on Saturdays to prepare for my final exams. Everyone was so helpful in supporting my development.
