Galbraith has provided me with a wide range of training, which was essential in being able to successfully navigate my way through the APC process. My training ranged from property management to transactional work, with all members of the team providing a high level of support throughout. I am delighted to have become a member of RICS and look forward to this next step in my career.
I am delighted to have become a member of RICS following the culmination of the APC and my academic studies. The support from the Galbraith rural team and the extensive array of professional work I have undertaken to date was key to my success. I look forward to continuing to develop my expertise and offer exceptional service to our clients.
