NAEA Propertymark is to introduce bursaries designed to support novice staff deemed to be showing exceptional potential to attend the association’s annual conference.
The association says this is part of an ongoing commitment to support new entrants to the industry; it wants agents to put themselves forward, or get a colleague to nominate them, for one of the 10 places available.
“We’ve introduced this initiative to give 10 new estate agents in the industry – who have not attended the conference before – an opportunity to be present. The conference is a chance to get up to speed with important industry issues, network with their peers and, receive guidance on developing as a professional” says NAEA chief executive Mark Hayward.
To enter, the individual agent or their colleague needs to submit a short description of the person’s role, how long they’ve been in the industry, and a paragraph about what they’ve done to demonstrate outstanding potential.
Closing date for submissions is a week today, Wednesday February 14; send details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
