Graduate Helen Brydson from Faithful+Gould's London office has received a prize at the RICS London and South East Student Awards 2010.
The award is made for Helen's work on the MSc Project Management course at the University of Greenwich. The university nominates 1 student per course, per year, for an award. Helen was nominated for her coursework, for which she received exceptionally high marks.
Helen joined Faithful+Gould from the University of Durham where she gained an honours degree in Geography. She is in the 2nd year of her postgraduate course, and has completed study of human resource management, sustainability, project management and building rehabilitation.
Speaking about her award Helen said,
"I was surprised to receive the award, but it is great to be recognised. It does make the hard work seem worthwhile at this halfway point in the course.''
Stephen Hateley, Faithful+Gould director, comments,
"Helen is an example of the excellent ‘non-cognate' graduates we are now attracting to the business. We are able to employ the best talent, irrespective of first degree subject. We then provide part time MSc training in their chosen work discipline through our strategic alliance with the University of Greenwich. This strategy helps ensure that we have people with different strengths and diverse backgrounds when delivering services to our clients."
