What's the impact of Brexit on graduate property jobs?
Recruiters tell us that they are still determined to invest in graduates, despite the environment of political and economic uncertainty surrounding the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union. Many are hiring the same number as last year. 'We have no intention of reducing the number of graduate positions and internships available because of Brexit or any other political influence,' says Sally Chacatte, group head of HR at Knight Frank.
Some employers might cut back their initial numbers and then 'top up' later when things become clearer. Ad hoc property vacancies can be found on TARGETjobs' graduate property jobs page.
If you are concerned about any possible effects of Brexit or other political uncertainties, do ask recruiters your questions. 'We try to reassure candidates and answer any questions they have about how Brexit may affect them or the property market,' says Serena Tulloch, graduate programme adviser at GVA. 'Remember that each company will have its own business strategy within the context of the wider economy and will respond to events accordingly. At GVA, we are in a period of growth and continue to invest in our future leaders.'
