Graduate scheme

South West +3


We are looking for ambitious Graduate Surveyors to join our growing Infrastructure teams in Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds and London. Infrastructure is the backbone of our economy and how we live, it encompasses power, water, telecoms, trains, roads, housing and even town centres delivering the services and facilities we need to live, work and play in the 21st century.

Operating in both rural and urban environments, our Infrastructure graduates combine the best from the Environment, Commercial, Geomatics, Minerals and Waste Management, Planning and Development and Rural Professional Groups to produce a well-rounded ‘land’ professional Chartered Surveyor.

Main tasks

This is an exciting opportunity for an effective individual to become part of our team that delivers real change to people’s lives. As a Graduate Infrastructure Surveyor, you will deal with a wide range of property clients from local Councils and London Boroughs, Network Rail, DfT, TfL, Water companies, and Telecoms providers to home owners, farmers, equestrian and agri businesses and small and multinational commercial businesses. You will take an active part in assisting with the negotiation of compensation claims for a range of property types including farming businesses, commercial businesses and residential property, supporting the consenting of major infrastructure projects as well as valuation and cost estimates.

Your work each day will vary, you could be supporting with gaining consent for access across third party land, negotiating lease events, land assembly, asset acquisition and disposal, valuations and contributing to strategic land acquisition reports. You will take an active role in the development and implementation of efficient, ‘best practice’ internal systems and processes, optimising IT and other resources. You will gain experience in some specialised and sought-after skills including land assembly negotiations and compulsory purchase which are in short supply in the market.

Clients are at the heart of what we do, so ensuring you develop and maintain strong relationships with our clients is essential, this includes attending client meetings and prepare communications and reports.

What will it take to be successful?

Candidates applying to Infrastructures will be from land management, environmental, infrastructure, planning & development, land administration, geography, real estate and extractive educational backgrounds and will develop a broad understanding of their role in the entire property/real estate lifecycle from land registration/mapping to management to development to remediation and re use.

You will also ideally have experience within a real estate or civil engineering organisation across the rural, commercial or energy sectors gained through work experience or placements.
