Graduate Building Surveyors

Currie & Brown is looking for building surveying graduates to join the company as trainee surveyors in our London and Bristol offices. Candidates should meet the following requirements:

  • Strong numeracy skills
  • Excellent written and spoken communication
  • Able to foster relationships with professionals of all levels
  • Analytical approach to problem-solving
  • Willing to travel (graduates will be expected to work on projects across various UK locations in order to gain breadth of experience, although the base location will remain constant)
  • Commitment to the company's rigorous training programme
  • Well-organised with the ability to prioritise tasks and manage their time

Responsibilities include:

  • Having full involvement in projects from the start: the role is varied and no two projects are the same
  • Managing relationships with clients, contractors and colleagues
  • Conducting individual study in your own time towards achieving chartered surveyor status

Training and progression (APC programme):

We will provide training through our industry-leading structured RICS APC programme. With your commitment and our support, you'll become a chartered surveyor in a minimum of two years (longer if a conversion course is required).

Attaining RICS accreditation is a standard requirement for Currie & Brown's professional employees. The company seeks to produce high-calibre practitioners through its rigorous programme. Candidates will commit to ongoing studying and document preparation, while regular assessment ensures progress and identifies where further study or support is required. The programme includes:

  • Self-study outside business hours (typically around two hours a day)
  • Mentorship from an experienced colleague
  • Training sessions with an external APC coach
  • Quarterly assessments
  • Coaching in soft skills
  • Individual face-to-face and telephone support in the six months leading up to the final assessment

Employment benefits:

As an APC candidate, you can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Salary reviews twice a year
  • 25 days' annual leave, increasing to 27 after five years with the company
  • Option to 'buy' more leave
  • Pension scheme membership, with a matched employer contribution of up to 5%
  • Company car allowance upon achieving chartership
  • Private healthcare scheme membership
  • Life insurance at twice your salary
  • Healthy living subsidy in the form of a taxable annual payment of £400 towards the cost of a sports club or gym
  • Professional membership subscription
  • An interest-free season ticket loan
  • Bike to work scheme
  • Opportunities to get involved with CSR activities
  • Social fund and social committee to support activities for all employees
  • 'Congratulations' payments when employees get married or enter into a civil partnership
  • Dress-down and early finish on Fridays
