Leading Property Consultancy Creating 25 New Jobs In Birmingham City Centre

09 October 2023

A leading property consultancy is creating 25 new jobs in Birmingham city centre as its new office is due to open next month.

Fisher German, who will open a new 7,300 sq ft office at Fifteen Colmore Row on Monday, November 13, is looking to hire 25 new colleagues in the next two years to help grow the firm’s influence in the city’s commercial market.

Four senior vacancies are immediately available in sectors identified by the firm to help expand its footprint in the Birmingham market.

The firm is seeking an office lead for the provision of Capital Markets & Investment advice across the Midlands, a local head for the Lease Advisory offering, an experienced Commercial Valuer and a high-level Industrial & Logistics Agent to complement the 70 staff moving from its existing Birmingham office to the new city centre office.

Mike Price, Head of Commercial Agency at Fisher German, said: “The commercial market in Birmingham is proving to be buoyant, and our new location in the heart of the CBD allows us to expand our influence across both the city and wider Midlands.

“We already have a great client base of landlords, funds and occupiers. We can better leverage this client base from a high-quality, city centre office and attract the best possible talent. 

“The need for Midlands-focused capital markets advice is a clear growth area for us and would be supported through our national coverage already provided via our London, Manchester and Yorkshire offices. 

“Our established client base needs additional best-in-class Lease Advisory support. The rental growth in the industrial and logistics market has been well documented whilst the shifting operational needs of office occupiers are inducing changes in those markets, necessitating the need for expert advice.

“It’s a great time for talented surveyors to join us at Fifteen Colmore Row – right in the centre of the city – and become integral to our partner-owned business with a people-focused culture.”

And Jason Clines, Commercial Valuation Lead for the Midlands at Fisher German, added: “Fisher German is very much focused on city markets with our current city centre offices in London, Liverpool and Manchester, and now Birmingham, alongside its other regional multi-service line and cross-sector offices.

“Valuation professionals are pivotal across the property landscape and play a key role in getting commercial deals done. We would encourage those with experience in the sector to join Fisher German at what is a really exciting time for the firm.

“Fifteen Colmore Row will be a perfect location to base our Birmingham operations from, and we are looking forward to welcoming new staff at the office over the next couple of years as we grow.”

Rupert Collis, Head of Commercial Lease Advisory at Fisher German, added: “Following the recent announcement that we are moving our Birmingham team to 15 Colmore Row in the city centre, we are also very excited to advise that we are expanding our National Commercial Lease Advisory team. 

“There is the opportunity for an experienced lease advisory specialist to join Fisher German with the remit of leading the team in the Midlands with the responsibility of growing the service line and team in the region. 

“This key role forms part of Fisher German’s wider strategy to provide an integrated Lease Advisory service across all regions of the UK.”

Fisher German’s key services such as commercial agency, commercial property management, investment, valuation, business rates, town planning, sustainable energy, telecoms and building consultancy services will all operate out of the new office, with the firm looking to quickly integrate with the many businesses in the area.
