Applications for our 2022 Graduate and student placements will open beginning of October and must be completed online via our careers website.
For our graduates, applications will close mid-November (please check our website as graduate schemes can vary). If you are shortlisted, you will be invited to attend an assessment centre at our London HQ office, One Chapel Place. The assessment centre is a two way process allowing you to find out more about Carter Jonas as well as for us to find out about your experience and skillset. You will be asked to interview, present and take part in a case study or group exercise. This process will be subject to any new government guidelines that may come into place in the future.
Assessment centres will typically take place in December and January.
For student placements, lasting 12 months as part of a four year course, applications normally go live in November time with interviews taking place in the New Year. This is typically a one interview round process at the office in which the placement will take place in.
We offer a highly competitive rewards package including group pension, flexible benefits, referral schemes and generous annual leave.
As an equal opportunity employer, with the Investors in People Gold accreditation, we are dedicated to driving diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Learning and development is important to us; we encourage everyone to continue developing to optimise their performance and fulfil their potential. We have an agile flexible working policy; many of our team work flexibly, we would be happy to talk to you about how this could work for you. We enjoy what we do, and we do it well, which is why 80% of our business comes from repeat clients.

Equality and diversity
Diversity and inclusion is a key focus to remain competitive and we are committed to improving cultural balance within our firm. This is underpinned by our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy along with our core values, chosen by our employees: Approachable, Effective and Ambitious.
We recognise that in this competitive employment market, a workplace culture that is inclusive fosters an environment that increases productivity, performance, employee satisfaction and wellbeing. In order to drive true change at Carter Jonas, our business leaders will build upon our EDI policies, sharing and evolving best practice across recruitment, training and development, reward and recognition of all staff. We aim to attract, engage and retain the best partners and employees to achieve our business objectives, and the ambitions of our people.
We actively engage with Changing the Face of Property which draws together industry partners to drive forward diversity initiatives and change from the top. To encourage diversity at entry level, we support apprenticeships and appreciate the benefit in ensuring people from all backgrounds can find a route into our industry. We have a strong Carter Jonas School Ambassador network to raise the profile of a career in surveying to those with less advantageous socio / economic backgrounds, compared to the more traditional talent pipelines into property.
Finally we are proud to have been certified as a Disability Committed Confident Employer which provides our employees and future hires the reassurance that we are not only inclusive but also provide accessibility for all within our processes. In 2021 we also achieved endorsement by Clear Assured, a national external EDI accreditation.
