  • Inspection and measurement
  • Service of notices
  • Valuations
  • Negotiation
  • Viewings
  • Lease renewals and rent reviews
  • Land use planning
  • Project management
  • Health and safety

In the second year of the scheme you will work in the development and operational property teams applying your skills to development scenarios and Compulsory Acquisition or Business rates areas.

Training & development

You will be supported in gaining professional membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). There might also be an opportunity to study for further academic or professional qualifications.
