Cailean Property Agents

Cailean Property Agents is an independent firm specialising in property Sales and letting, covering Dunfermline.

Cailean Property also has Mathew who has recently completed his Modern Apprenticeship in Digital Marketing with Sixth Sense Training. Colin Storrie, the Managing Director of Cailean Property also shares his thoughts on why he decided to take on a modern apprentice.

Modern Apprenticeship

Mathew explains how his digital marketing apprenticeship helped him gain a better understanding of his job role. “With Cailean Property, my current role is a letting agent. I do inspections and inventories for that role and because of my modern apprenticeship, I’ve now started to do photography and marketing for the company. My assessor came out every few weeks and when he did, he was really helpful. My assessor was always supportive when I was working through my units. During my working hours or even after work. If I had a problem, my assessor was there for guidance.”

Colin reflects on the decision to recruit a modern apprentice through Sixth Sense Training. “I decided to take on a modern apprentice from Sixth Sense Training as our team identified a gap in the workplace. The team felt we had to get ourselves up to the digital age that’s coming now. We also wanted to get Mathew’s skills involved in the company.”

Developing my Career

Mathew then mentions the skills he has learned and advanced on through his modern apprenticeship, and also how it has helped develop his career. “The skills I’ve learned with Sixth Sense Training helped me develop my career as a letting agent. It’s also allowed me to explore new areas in an estate agency as well.”

Colin goes on to say how he found working alongside Sixth Sense Training. “I found Sixth Sense Training to be very helpful. The quality of the candidates was good. Having dealt with other training companies in the past, I was very impressed with the candidates Sixth Sense Training supplied. Mathew progressed very well with his apprenticeship training. He now uses the skills that he’s learned during his course in everyday tasks in the workplace.”

Mathew then concludes his apprenticeship experience with Sixth Sense Training. “If anyone’s looking to do any courses in IT or marketing and want to develop their career path. I would definitely recommend Sixth Sense Training as they’ve helped me through my progression.”

Colin then states if he would recommend Sixth Sense Training. “Would I recommend Sixth Sense Training? Yes, I would! Hopefully, we can find another good candidate by using them again ourselves.”
