Following his graduation from University, Toby was soon accepted on a graduate training scheme for a top-ten property developer. This afforded Toby valuable experience in each of the key managerial functions necessary for the construction of a project, from inception to completion.
In the land and planning department, Toby was part of a team responsible for the initial feasibility studies of proposed new developments and the preparation of bids to the vendors. He quickly gained experience in S106 agreements and right to light easements which form critical parts of large scale development bids.
