    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • It has widened my scope of though as before I undertook the insight program I thought the pathways were much more limited. It is definitely confusing with all the different pathways and specific requirements necessary for them (e.g. RICS or RTPI) but it was well explained and I feel comfortable to email with any questions that may arise.
