My journey to property: Pardip Kaur, Business Data Manager
Lastly, we speak to Pardip Kaur, Business Data Manager, to learn a bit about her journey to TFT and why she encourages more women to continue pushing boundaries and add something unique to the property industry!
How did you get into the industry and your role?
I started working in the property industry 20 years ago at RICS within their events department. I was at the RICS for 6.5 years. When I joined RICS, the events were heavily attended by male surveyors, but by the time I left, I was working with females who were on the professional working groups for building surveying and building control.
My profession means I can work within a variety of industries, but it’s because of the wonderful people I have met through the years that I have remained in property circle (some of these are now my close friends!).
Have you come across any particular challenges within it?
I’ve not really found any challenges within the industry. This might be due to the type of roles I have had and my strong personality.
Do you have any advice to give people who don’t know too much about it or who are considering going into the industry?
My experience within the industry has always been a positive one. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it had not have been for the people I met throughout my career. The industry is very open and approachable.
