Benefits of working for Armitstead Barnett

Simon Wells - Partner


I joined Armitstead Barnett in 2016 as a Graduate Surveyor. During that time I was exposed to a large variety of work, within a diverse team of people with a range of specialisms. I also received fantastic support with the APC training scheme, on my journey to becoming chartered. Armitstead Barnett have examiners for both the APC and CAAV within the team, which proved invaluable towards preparing me for my assessment! There’s a brilliant ethos running through all our work and you’ll often hear the term “Team AB” in all our offices. Whilst there will always be the need to “get the job done”, you’ll work in a relaxed atmosphere within a great team.
