A picture of Joe's story

Joe studied Philosophy and Politics at the University of Manchester and completed a Masters in Political Theory at the University of Sheffield.

I have completed placements in Development, Housing, Asset Management and Commercial. The scheme has been exactly what I wanted it to be and the roles I have undertaken have given me extensive experience of customer service, data analysis and business planning.

At the end of my time on the scheme, I accepted a role in the Commercial team which involved assessing new business opportunities including individual care home development projects, joint venture housing developments and larger commercial acquisitions.

On the scheme, I have been given the opportunity to study the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants Certificate in Business Accounting and following the scheme, I plan to become a Chartered Management Accountant to assist me in my role as a member of the Commercial team.

I thoroughly enjoy my work and I do not believe that I would be in the same place if it were not for my experiences on the Graduate Development Programme.
