Thanks to Jones Lang LaSalle for hosting another successful APC Surgery!

Wednesday 8th May 2013

Martin Thomas, European Director and Head of the Central London team led the evening, providing candidates with an insight on what to expect from the day itself, right through to submission preparation. Martin has been an Assessor for 20 years and is a qualified Arbitrator. He has been part of the internal support team for all JLL APC candidates for a number of years and continues to help graduates through the process today. Martin was joined by Dan Walsgrove, a surveyor at JLL who passed his APC a week prior to the event and was on hand to answer any questions which arose.

The evening looked all all aspects of the APC with Martin highlighting a number of key issues;

  • The interview itself - Where it is, what it includes, timetable
  • The roles of the panel - Chairman, Assessors and Auditors
  • Critical Analysis and Submissions - What to include
  • Code of Conduct and Ethics - Examples of questions
  • Questions and Answers

Martin discussed the above giving clear examples and anecdotes of his experience of an Assessor. The evening provided a useful mix of real scenarios, coupled with questions and answers from the candidates to explain what to expect and prepare them as best possible.

The key outcomes were preparation, professionalism and practice (practice, practice!).
