Claire Ryder, Lettings Manager for Joplings has successfully passed the NFoPP Level 3 Technical Award in Residential Letting and Property Management. This well-respected Award is not only a nationally-recognised industry qualification but is also an entry requirement of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) which is the only professional, self-regulating body specialising in raising and maintaining practice standards in the UK private rental sector.
Claire started her career as a Lettings Manager 8 years ago with Joplings. She started studying for this qualification during her Maternity leave and completed the qualification six months later which was quite a challenge with a young family.
Claire said: “I decided to start studying toward this qualification as a result of the increased changes in the legislation for the lettings industry and I am thrilled the hard work has paid off and I have secured the Technical Award. For me, it is not only a personal achievement but evidence of our professionalism as an agency, showing our clients that they are dealing with someone who is knowledgeable and who they can trust to do a good job.”
Michael Stephenson, General Manager who works alongside Claire Ryder at Joplings said: “We could not be more proud of Claire. Her hard work and determination in getting this certification shows her unrivalled commitment to this industry and to providing the best possible service to our clients. All the staff in our Letting’s department are currently working towards this qualification. This will ensure that we continue to improve on our already outstanding service”.
Joplings is amongst the steadily growing number of agents across the UK who are working with ARLA and the NFoPP Awarding Body to become qualified and raise standards within their field.
