Knight Frank values latest recruitment
29th July 2015
The Sheffield office of Knight Frank has strengthened its team after appointing its latest associate.
Edwin Shaw has joined the valuations team after working for a Leeds-based commercial property agency and will work across a broad portfolio of commercial valuations throughout South Yorkshire. The appointment also coincides with the Sheffield office's appointment of 21-year-old Harry Elliot, a BSc (Hons) Planning Real Estate and Development student on a 12 month internship from The University of Northumbria, and hot on the heels of Knight Frank being voted in the top 15 UK companies for graduate recruitment. Edwin said: -I am delighted to gain a position with the region's premier property consultancy and renewing my ties with Sheffield and South Yorkshire. -Knight Frank is the leading practice within South Yorkshire, with a very forward thinking team which has handled some of the most significant deals throughout the region and I'm very much enjoying working with highly experienced practitioners and being a part of that process through commercial valuation work. -The commercial property market is moving quickly and it's good to see so much activity, particularly in South Yorkshire which offers some real potential for investment at the moment. Knight Frank has recently been listed in 'The JobCrowd Top Companies To Work For 2015' survey, coming in the top 15 out of 100 companies, based on graduate feedback. Stephen Hodgson, regional commercial head at Knight Frank, said: -We are pleased to welcome Edwin onto the valuations team and also to welcome our intern, Harry, at a very busy time for the region. -We are also extremely pleased to be recognised by The JobCrowd for the company's commitment to graduate employees and the efforts we all put in to help those individuals build rewarding careers. Knight Frank was listed alongside companies including Microsoft and Procter & Gamble for its dedication to training and developing its staff.
