Property agent Savills has bolstered its Reading office with the appointment of ten new team members in 2021 including four graduates.

The firm says the new joiners will enable the real estate firm to grow its business by unlocking additional resource and evolving its professional capabilities.

Ragan Jain has joined Reading’s busy planning division as a graduate planner. Ragan has a first class degree in economics from the University of Bath and a masters in spatial planning and development from the University of Reading.

The development team has brought in two new graduates, Ailsa Howells and Sam Robinson. Ailsa has degrees in architecture & planning and also property development & planning, both from the University of the West of England.

Sam has a degree in real estate management from the University College of Real Estate Management.

Josh Tarrant has been appointed to Reading’s worldwide occupier services division. He joins with a degree in real estate from Oxford Brookes University.

Phil Brown, head of Savills Reading, said: “As our business continues to grow we are always keen to use the opportunity to bring in new talent through our award-winning graduate programme.

“I am particularly pleased to welcome Ragan, Ailsa, Sam and Josh, who have hit the ground running and are already proving great assets to our Reading team.”

The new graduates are four of ten new joiners to the Savills Reading business since April 2021. The firm’s planning, development, worldwide occupier services, residential development sales and lettings teams have all welcomed new faces this year, including: Gemma Malaperiman, director, corporate account management; Sarah Smith, associate director, planning; James Walker, associate, planning; Megan Holman, senior surveyor, development; Steph Duff, sales negotiator, residential development sales; and Luke Richardson, lettings negotiator.

Phil Brown added: “We are proud to be a market leader in Reading, offering a comprehensive breadth of service and unrivalled sector knowledge across six service lines including planning, development, valuations, new homes, lettings and occupier services.

“To maintain this, it is clearly important that we continue to recruit the best people in the business, and we expect to expand the office team further across the latter part of 2021 and into 2022.”
