Our Academy Trainees
A selection of our successful Hamptons Academy Trainees share their personal experiences of the scheme:
Academy Trainee, Ealing Lettings
“When applying for The Academy I knew I had the ambition needed to make a great career in property, although I never thought I would get through to the interview stage. The Hamptons Academy team have been incredible from first point of contact all the way through to what is now my fifth month with the company. At first what seemed like a torrent of information now makes more and more sense and I have been able to apply this information effectively to contribute to my personal development.
You genuinely get out of this job what you put in and I have been taught by the friendliest, most professional group of people in the business. I have nothing but pure admiration for the people who make Hamptons International the incredible company that it is, and I am honoured to contribute to the rising success of the business. I would seriously recommend the Hamptons Academy to any driven individuals who want to receive the best training from an incredibly well respected and established company.”
Sophie Wellesley Wood
Academy Trainee, Chiswick Sales
“The experience I have gained as an Academy Trainee with Hamptons International has been phenomenal. I was immediately impressed in my first week with the professional standard of training in addition to the welcoming spirit of all the employees! It was clear from the start that Hamptons was determined to create a strong vision for the future through their investment in young willing individuals such as myself.
I am now confident in using my newly acquired sales skills and seeing results both in the office and out on viewings. My office in Putney has been a huge source of support in terms of imparting knowledge and guidance, but the combination of the 1-2-1 coaching from my Academy Manager and my mentor is what has allowed me to progress the fastest. What’s special about the Academy is that it is tailored to the individual and the power is in your hands to start and steer your career in property, within an internationally recognised estate agency.”
Academy Trainee, Fleet Sales
“I joined the Hamptons Academy scheme to become a respected property negotiator working for a market leading brand. Since being welcomed into the company, my experience has exceeded my expectations and the training has been challenging yet fun. I found the group training week to be really enjoyable and a great way to meet other people starting their career with Hamptons.
Furthermore, the ongoing training at my office has been structured very well. The most memorable occasion so far has been the Hamptons Summer Party at Chiswick House which was a fantastic event. I saw all the friends I had made through training and networked with other Hamptons International employees. Overall, I have found The Academy process to be a great learning opportunity and an effective way to start a career in estate agency.”
Academy Trainee, Beaconsfield Sales
“After studying for my BSc (hons) degree in Property, Agency and Management at the Royal Agricultural University it fuelled my ambition to be successful within the property industry. I found out about The Academy at my university’s careers fair, whereby Hamptons International stood out for me due to the friendly, approachable and professional people representing the company.
Since beginning my Academy experience in the very successful Beaconsfield office, I have learnt so much. My team are so professional and supportive, which has enabled me to develop my skills and achieve my first deal! Hamptons is the perfect place to work if you want to work with great people and if you are looking to progress within a company.”
The Academy has been established for those with a real drive and passion to start a career in property. If you have the energy, enthusiasm, a desire to succeed and a passion for property find out more and apply.
