The move is in keeping with the current trend of high-profile workforce investment.

The comments follow an article published in online magazine the Swindon Business News detailing property management company DTZ’s decision to invest in a team of new surveyors. The company aim to streamline the way project management is approached within the business.

DTZ have placed an emphasis on the benefits gained from collaboration across a variety of industries. Their investment has seen a range of candidates from diverse backgrounds be considered to forge a new project management team within their workforce.

DTZ felt they needed someone to be drafted in to take care of appeals and mitigations regarding business rates, guaranteeing they were carried out at the highest of standards at all times. As a result, Andrew Flower has been appointed, with much owed to his previous experience within the national market. Ben Johnson, on the other hand, was selected by the company to assist in the overall monitoring of the company’s existing projects, with technical diligence and dilapidations advice also part of his remit.

Sarah James-Nock was drafted in from another strand of the property sector, following a lengthy period of time working in banking. DTZ have placed her in charge of managing some of the company’s flagship projects, ranging from three leisure parks for one client to two shopping centres for another.

The move is in keeping with the current trend of high-profile workforce investment. Companies are increasingly pressured to increase the standards of their internal management, and as a result are forming collaborative management teams such as this. As per the PRINCE2® project management methodology, they are emphasising their commitment to expansion through well-informed decisions to improve the company’s output.

As long-term advocates of PRINCE2®, Kevin Tewis, Global Head of Marketing for ILX, has released a statement following the report. ‘DTZ have spoken publicly of their determination to expand over the next few years and, with that in mind, the decision to invest heavily in project management is a sensible and indeed unsurprising one.

‘The range of backgrounds from which they have selected their new members of staff highlights an appreciation for the various levels of expertise that are required from project managers in the modern day. The need for a specific skill sets to be applied appropriately cannot be underestimated for projects such as theirs to succeed.’
