We’re pleased to announce that Olivia Griffin has joined Hyas Associates a Graduate Planner.

Hyas recently set up an office base in the STEAMhouse Business Incubator support hub – which is based at Birmingham City University (BCU).

As part of looking for a new Graduate Planner, Hyas worked with BCU and were delighted that a recent graduate from the BCU’s Property Development and Planning course successfully applied for the role.

The successful graduate is Olivia Griffin, who is looking forward to pursuing one of her favourite areas of study in a work setting.

“When I read the job description, I knew straight away that this would be my dream role.”

“I knew from the outset that Hyas Associates were my dream company. They are heavily focused on placemaking, one of my favourite modules on my degree.”

“I can tell that this will be the perfect place to start and progress my career. I will be working as a graduate planner, working with the team to help and support new housing schemes in the country. I’ll be involved in a broad range of strategic planning.”

Buoyed by the positive relationships Hyas Associates have formed since joining STEAMhouse, Hyas will continue to explore further positive links with the University, such as through professional networking/guest speaker events that will be held at STEAMhouse later in 2022 and into 2023. Hyas also intend to offer opportunities for students to become involved, to develop their understanding of the profession and benefit from networking opportunities.
