Applications for our 2019 graduate scheme are NOW OPEN

Can I apply?

Although our typical applicants study RICS accredited undergraduate or postgraduate degrees in Real Estate or Building Surveying, we welcome students from ANY degree discipline who can demonstrate a genuine desire to begin a career as a surveyor.


If you wish to apply to our scheme but do not already have a RICS accredited degree, you will (if successful) be required to undertake a part-time RICS accredited postgraduate conversion degree in Real Estate.

This is usually fully-sponsored and takes 2 years to finish. This must be completed before you can sit your APC so non-cognates typically take 2.5 years to qualify. 

We do not accept non-cognate graduates for Building Surveyor vacancies.

How to apply

Our application process is split into two parts. Both must be completed by midnight on the 30th November 2018. 

Step 1: click the APPLY NOW link below to complete a simple application form and upload your CV.

Step 2: click the VIDEO QUESTIONS link below to complete the task. You will be directed to another site where you must first register. You will then receive log-in details with a unique PIN code and full instructions on how to complete the video questions. You will have to answer 3 video questions and will have 2 minutes to answer each question (so max. 6 minutes in total to complete)

You must complete steps 1 & 2 before the deadline for your application to be considered. You do not have to complete the video questions straight away but we recommend you aim to complete them within a week of completing step 1. 



What  next?

Shortlisting: Once the application window has closed on the 30th November, all applications are reviewed and a shortlist compiled. At this stage all applicants will receive an email to advise if they have been successful or not.

First interviews: Interviews typically take place in early-mid January at the office you have selected. Typically our interviews take 60-75 mins and include competency questions and a short verbal technical assessment. If successful at first interview you will be invited to attend an assessment centre (London only) OR a second interview.

Assessment centres:  Assessment centres are held in our London office usually towards the end of January. They typically last for 2.5 hours and include an individual presentation, group task and individual written exercise. Shortly after, final selections will be made and successful applicants will be notified by phone.
