In partnership with Premier Sports Network, Knight Frank provide the first ever opportunity for professional athletes to learn, grow and lead in an environment of endless possibility, as Kate Doyle, Graduate and Early Careers Manager at Knight Frank explains.
Knight Frank is a place for people who look at the world differently, who build on their possibilities in an environment that is privately-owned and wholly collaborative with a partnership structure. You don't need to have a degree in property to build your future with Knight Frank, we are looking for curious and driven people to transform our business and industry.
Our Life Skills sessions have been designed to inspire professional sports people and encourage individuals to explore career opportunities in property.
We offer a suite of workshops with different learning outcomes, tailored to meet the specific, individual club needs. Delivered by Kate Doyle, a qualified teacher with many years’ experience in early careers recruitment and development, the sessions are interactive and educational, and written to meet individual, specific objectives.
We believe professional sports equips people with a variety of skills necessary for a career in property: drive, determination and ambition, often coupled with an ability to work alongside a team of diverse individuals.
There’s a human element in the world of property that is too easily overlooked. At Knight Frank, we believe taking a personal approach is crucial when interacting with our clients, as it gives us a detailed understanding of how we can connect them with the perfect property, be it residential or commercial.
Communication skills honed both on and off the field, pitch or court, potentially in front of the media provides a foundation for exceptional customer and client service.
A combination of Q&A facilitated discussion and group activities provide opportunity for individuals to display skills and identify area of strength.
Entry Points and follow up work experience:
During the Life Skills webinars, we review a variety of entry points into real estate and careers at the Firm. Options from apprenticeships through to fully funded degrees, leading to qualification as a Chartered Surveyor. Following the sessions, we have hosted several players in our Head Office for a period of formal work shadowing, providing a first-hand insight to our work.
Our Client Case Study Session concludes with a tour of properties explored in the activity and allows participants to speak firsthand, with Knight Frank surveyors and negotiators.
We have been working with PSN and supporting the Life Skills programme to improve general knowledge of the property industry and broad aspects of real estate. The training explores common industry terminology and highlight key factors to consider to increasing awareness and understanding of the property market to enables individuals to make more informed decisions.
Scheduled around your availability, sessions can be delivered both virtually and face to face.
