What do you do at QV?

 

I'm relishing the oppourtunity to lead a team of diverse and experienced registered and graduate valuers who complete a range of valuation services.

 

What’s your favourite thing about working at QV?

 

I enjoy that QV is a modern,social workplace.  QV invests in modern technology early, and sees the value of bringing in younger property professionals into the business. The job security and flexibility is a huge bonus, for instance after working here for a few years I wanted to travel, and my manager was open to keeping my job available for me when I returned.

Being part of an experienced and knowledgable team is awesome.  QV is very supportive of me furthering my career, and there is such a variety of valuation work coming through our doors that no two days are the same.

What do you do at QV?

 

As a valuer in Christchurch and given the landscape of the property market here since the earthquakes its very interesting seeing things change and the work I’m doing every day is different. Taking part in the Future Leaders [Link to Future Leaders] programme was an opportunity for me to step out of my day-to- day role and learn different skills as well as receive insights on how to a be a leader within the business. I have been able to apply this in everything I do, particularly championing technological change in our business and industry.

 

What's your favourite thing about working at QV?

 

The people at QV are great to work with, and the variety in my job and the technology that QV utilises which is becoming more and more integrated with today's valuing have all been draw cards.
