Graduates land success at leading property consultancy

A collaboration between leading property consultancy FHP and BCU has enabled two real estate graduates to secure their first professional roles.

Ben Clinton and Dan Mooney have joined FHP as graduate surveyors in the firm’s Birmingham and Derby offices respectively.

The two appointments come as FHP and Birmingham City University forge a closer working relationship to provide a pathway for emerging local talent in the property sector.

Ben Clinton has recently completed a Real Estate degree and will work with Director, Head of Birmingham Office, Doug Tweedie, to widen FHP’s presence across multiple sectors in the West Midlands.

Dan Mooney is completing the final stages of a Master’s degree in Real Estate Management at Birmingham City University. He joins FHP’s Derby team where he will work on office, industrial and retail instructions throughout Derbyshire and the wider East Midlands.

Doug Tweedie said: “We’re really pleased to welcome Ben and Dan to FHP. Both are talented graduate surveyors who have a lot to offer our business and we look forward to helping them to progress their career with us.

“FHP has developed successful relationships with universities in Sheffield and Nottingham to identify graduate recruits in the past and we’re delighted to have expanded our network by forging closer links with Birmingham City University.”

Dr David Higgins, Professor of Real Estate at BCU, said: “This is excellent news, I’m really pleased for the students in joining FHP. I know they will receive hands-on commercial training in their new roles which will build on the university experience and is a win for all parties.

“I look forward to seeing Ben and Dan's real estate career evolve in FHP’s capable hands. BCU and FHP are building a close working relationship, both in the classroom and in offering graduate positions.”

FHP is a Midlands based commercial property consultancy with offices in Birmingham, Nottingham and Derby. Its 90 strong team offers a range of professional and commercial property solutions for clients in the retail, leisure, office, industrial, residential, land and investment markets.
