She will be based in the Bristol office and will be involved in work on behalf of commercial landlords and tenants on matters including dilapidations, due diligence, and strategic advice, covering a geographical area extending from Cornwall to Gloucestershire.
Tim Davies, head of South West and Wales for Colliers International, said: “Our Building Surveying and Project Management division is involved in a diverse range of work across the region, and Jessica’s appointment to the team demonstrates our continuing drive to enhance the depth of our offering to clients.”
Jessica, a trainee surveyor, studied for an MSc in Building Surveying through the University College of Estate Management, having decided to embark upon a new career as a surveyor after previously undertaking a degree in Criminology and working in property management.
She said: “It was a challenge to study for an MSc while also working full-time, and I’m delighted that Colliers International has given me the opportunity to become a surveyor.”
Keith Godsmark, head of the Building Surveying and Project Management team covering the South West and Wales, said: “Following another successful year, we needed someone who would be able to work across a broad spectrum of client requirements, and Jessica’s experience in business made her ideal for this role.
“Over the next 12 months, the aim is to expand further the Building Surveying and Project Management team with another appointment that will enable the team to continue with already high levels of activity while expanding our market presence.”
