Job overview

Commercial Real Estate is at the heart of solving some of our City's biggest challenges:

  • housing pressures
  • TfL's financial sustainability
  • and the need to keep London moving, working and growing

We have an ambitious housing programme which will provide more than 20,000 homes, with 50% affordable housing across all sites brought to the market since May 2016.

Construction has already started on some 1,500 and we have thousands of more homes coming forward. All profits from development are reinvested back into the transport network.

What you'll be doing

As an apprentice, your five year development programme will be made up of up to eight placement rotations.

Our aim is to equip you with the range of skills and experience you need for a successful career in the property sector.

Your first placement in Property Management will be fixed, and your following placements will be agreed to ensure you gain experience on the widest possible range of technologies, tools and teams.

Where this career can take you

Property provides a fantastic opportunity to make a difference using your own skill set.

There are many avenues to pursue and a myriad of options depending on the choices you take and the work you choose to get involved with.

At TfL, we provide the opportunity to gain qualifications and develop a career in the property world through our diverse teams.

Upon successful completion of this scheme, you'll roll-off into one of the teams in Commercial Development, either as a Property Surveyor or Assistant Development Manager.
