Graduate Retail Surveyor

A National Property, Surveying and Planning Consultancy with an established client base including some blue chip customers.


Your New Role

A National Property, Surveying and Planning Consultancy with an established client base including some blue chip customers. With specialist teams of MRICS Chartered Surveyors, this consultancy prides themselves on always delivering on projects no matter the complexity, always to a high standard. This great company is looking for you to join their established Birmingham office.

Due to continued growth and a strong pipeline of established clients, they are now seeking a Surveyor with a General Practice/Estates degree background, ideally with Retail and Leisure experience or transferring from Commercial Agency. You will be working with Chartered Surveyors who will also act as mentors, assisting you with your APC competencies through to Chartership as MRICS.

Their pass rate for Graduates is very good and their retention of staff even after becoming chartered is a testament to how well they treat their employees and the work environment they nurture.

Your main duties will include (but not be limited to) acquisitions, disposals and new developments for both retail and leisure clients. This could involve a new gym or restaurant in the town centre all the way through to a large new supermarket on a retail park. The breadth of work available is impressive and will help you with the criteria for your ACP/RICS.

So what do you need to secure this great opportunity? You need a RICS accredited Degree in a relevant subject such as e.g. Estates Management. You will ideally already have at least 18 months experience working in a retail, commercial or similar environment as a Agency Surveyor.

Characteristics and a passion for your work is very important, as they have a great work environment where everyone chips in and helps each other, bouncing ideas around and making sure that the client’s needs are always looked after. It would be great if you’ve already started your APC and just need some extra support to cover certain criteria, but the most important thing is that you can become a professional chartered Surveyor and have some knowledge with you on the core principals.

If you are already Chartered then fantastic; because we also have a role for you! Please contact us to discuss this other great opportunity with the company that rewards.

In return for your work, you will receive a competitive remuneration package dependent on your experience to date. My client don’t wish to rule anyone out at this point so please also include the salary you are looking for when applying.

Other benefits include a company car or car allowance, performance based bonus and business generation bonus (although you’re not expected to generate business at this point), subsidised gym membership (you can hit that New Year’s resolution!) and the support of an experienced team to become Chartered and progress your knowledge as a professional and competent surveyor.
