Edward Tyler tells us about his placement year at Berrys

Published November 24th, 2016

Berrys has long been committed to offering placement students and graduates the opportunities, experience and training they need to progress as far as possible in their chosen field.

Edward Tyler who has been on a placement year with Berrys since July 2016 this year tells us about his experience so far:

“Upon beginning my placement year at Berrys I soon became very conscious that we were a growing business, learning of the new Shrewsbury office currently under construction and the vast amount of diverse work I was exposed to. It was a streamlined transcendence into professional work which has offered a wealth of knowledge surrounding Rural Chartered Surveying.

Working within the Planning Department has enabled me to do something more diverse than many of my fellow peers at Harper Adams University.

In essence, all sustainable businesses grow. That growth could merit the type of Planning and Development Consultancy that Berrys offers. Through this, I have been given the chance to represent a vast range of businesses within rural and urban locations around the West Midlands, something I thoroughly enjoy.

Pairing the unique type of work offered within the Planning and Development Department at Berrys, with my two years of studies at Harper Adams, I have been successfully able to navigate toward my preferred Assessment of Professional Competencies (APC) pathway going forward.

In regards to future employability, the nature of the work I do offers potential employers a candidate who has worked around many different development projects and will adopt Berrys continuous work ethic as my career develops.”
