Graham + Sibbald graduates become RICS members


Graduates based in the Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee offices of Graham + Sibbald have all successfully passed their Assessment of Professional Competencies (APC) to become full members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).


In Edinburgh, Graeme Millar BSc (Hons) MRICS joined Graham + Sibbald straight from school in 2006, qualified from his university course in 2011 and is now a fully qualified chartered surveyor.  Qualifying alongside him is Greg Cranston BSc (Hons) MRICS and Graeme Boyd BSc (Hons) MRICS.  Graeme Boyd qualified through the professional experience route, for candidates that hold a non RICS accredited degree but have five or more years of experience.


In the Dundee office Grant Robertson MA (Hons) MRICS joined the firm in 2011 and is delighted to have passed the APC process first time.  Kyle Porter BSc (Hons) MRICS also works in Dundee and joined Graham + Sibbald as a trainee in 2006, qualifying last month (November 2013).


The sixth graduate is John Docherty BA (Hons) MRICS, who works in the Graham + Sibbald Glasgow office and has been with the firm just over two years.


Iain Leighton Senior Partner, Graham + Sibbald, commented: “We are absolutely delighted that six of our graduates have passed their APC and we congratulate all of them in achieving their MRICS qualification.  Each individual has to work incredibly hard to achieve this and Graham + Sibbald also provides a high level of support through its APC mentoring scheme.  We know how important it is to attract good young people into our business and the chartered surveying profession.  We are delighted that the time and money we have invested in training and mentoring has produced such positive results.


“Our successful graduates this time range across the disciplines, namely commercial, residential and building surveying, showing the breadth of experience we offer as a firm.  We hope our 2014 APC candidates will match the success of this year’s class.”
