The move follows a period of rapid growth fuelled by the recovering property market, increased mortgage lending and new clients according to Connells.
This investment represents the latest phase of Connells multi-million pound business development programme and underlines the company’s ongoing commitment to deliver sustainable service excellence.
Commenting on this news, Ross Bowen, managing director at Connells, said: “We have already increased our surveying capacity by 30% over the last 12 months and the timing of this expansion could not have been better given the housing market upturn.”
Bowen added, “Our new investment will fund taking on 100 additional surveyors throughout 2014 which, combined with specialist professional development training and other initiatives we are delivering, will mean Connells’ people will remain at the forefront of their industry.
“We have been delighted with the response from experienced, trainee and graduate surveyors wanting to join the Connells Survey & Valuation team. It is evident that there are many professionals across the mortgage valuation, residential surveying and property markets that share our passion for delivering excellent customer outcomes and are keen to pursue their careers with us.”
