Charlie Wardroper, managing director of CBRE’s Leeds office, said: “We’re delighted at the success of all three CBRE candidates. The APC is not an easy qualification to undertake, especially as it is completed in conjunction with full-time employment so to pass first time is definitely an acheivement.
