"It really depends on what department you want to work in. Niche areas of the business have a lot more promotion opportunities. Transaction business lines tend to be more based on the amount you bill each year."
Graduate, London
"It depends on the business needs upon qualification."
Entry level, Birmingham
"It's difficult to tell. There are many levels. To move from surveyor to senior surveyor is an example of where it simply depends on your experience and how long you've been doing the same job. But to move up to director signifies a position of greater strength and responsibility for a team. Therefore you won't just get a promotion to director based on experience. The opportunity has to be there in the first place (the current director either leaving or being promoted to senior director or above)."
Graduate, London (City)
"I have witnessed some graduates get qualified to become surveyors and then get promoted to senior surveyor in the space of six months. If you work hard and are good at what you do then you will be rewarded. The business offers you the scope to grow as a professional and rewards employees for their hard work."
Graduate, Birmingham
"Graduates usually progress to surveyor quickly after qualifying. This is followed by promotions every couple of years if appropriate and deserved."
Graduate, London

"It feels as though the senior levels of staff are brought in from other firms rather than being promoted from within. Progressing from say graduate to associate director level seems to run fairly smoothly if you can prove yourself."
Graduate, London
"Graduates get an appraisal once a year. If you work hard you can move up the ranks."
Graduate, Birmingham
"There's not much room for movement as a graduate but the process for promotion once qualified seems straightforward."
Graduate, London
"The promotion structure is quite transparent so you know where you stand and where you are likely to be in future."
Graduate, Birmingham
"I can only comment on what I have witnessed in the Birmingham office but from a graduate's perspective it seems that promotion possibilities have been very good for newly qualified surveyors over the past 12-18 months."
Graduate, Birmingham
