Elgin Intern shines in critical competence test – and fundraising

Graham Laird – critical test

THE MORAY BRANCH of one of Scotland’s leading independent chartered surveyors has been fostering the talents of young professionals in its graduate development program.

That has resulted in three newly qualified chartered surveyors – all having completed the critical Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) test.

Graham Laird, based at the Elgin Office of DM Hall has joined colleagues from Paisley and Ayr in successfully completing the test, something Graham admits his employers were very supportive as he progressed through the accreditation process.

He said: “The firm’s training program is second to none. I am looking forward to developing as a surveyor with the support that I have been receiving.”

In June, Graham also took part in the DM Hall fundraising bungee jump. As a member of a team of six, he helped raise over £1000 for Alzheimer Scotland and Macmillan Cancer Support Scotland.

Eric Curran, Managing Partner at DM Hall, said: “DM Hall brings in the best and brightest, and provides an atmosphere of professional dedication.

“All have worked hard, learned craft and diligence from those around them, and have earned their professional qualification. We look forward to working with them, developing their skills and watching them grow professionally.”
