Murtala is a Property Development and Management graduate with a passion for innovative residential development and an aspiration to one day direct a major development firm, either through years of service and various promotions or through carving out a path for himself.

He is currently a Graduate Project Manager, within the Contract Management team in L&Q's North Region; as well as an APC candidate, with the RICS, taking the Project Management pathway.

Murtala chose this career path as a result of multiple factors. The most significant of these being his lifelong love of Lego bricks and the endless architectural possibilities that they offer, as well as the influence that his grandfather has had on him while growing up, as he was also a residential developer.
