Spicerhaart says some 600 hopefuls turned up for a series of recruitment days in three parts of the country.
Around a third were offered positions and 70 invited to undertake a day of employability and self-development activities.
The company has also offered a number of full-time positions to recruits just completing the government's six-month Kickstart scheme.
Spicerhaart - which has recently announced many new home-based agent roles - says it’s gearing up for substantial lettings and sales expansion.
Emma Barber, the agency’s head of training and development, says: “Our various schemes are attracting both experienced professionals and career switchers, who are keen to embark on our highly advanced career and development programme throughout Estate Agency, Lettings and Financial Services.
“Our Academy recruitment days were fun packed and included talks about the journey of the Spicerhaart group and the career path and opportunities available.
“Throughout the day, the participants enjoyed exercises designed to bring out the best in them, build their confidence and demonstrate the behaviours that we are looking for. We saw people really come out of their shells and bond with the other participants.”
Candidates offered full time positions will be enrolled on the Spicerhaart Vocational Development Programme and will undertake relevant qualifications.
The Kickstart programme began in 2020 and offers six-month jobs for young people aged 16 to 24 years old who are currently claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment.
