The majority of our graduate positions are based in London although opportunities do arise in our regional offices. You need to let us know in your application if you’d prefer a non-London location. You’ll be based at your main office during most of your training period, although you will also be travelling around the country to see clients and their properties.

When will I start work?

If Gerald Eve works out as the place for you, you will join us around mid-September. Details will be confirmed with successful applicants.

Are any work placements available?

Different offices and departments offer holiday work and industrial placements from time to time. Formal work placement opportunities are usually advertised between December-January of each year and summer work experience opportunities are usually advertised between February-March each year.  These will be advertised on Gerald Eve’s careers website.  During times we’re not formally advertising, you may also send us your CV and covering letter, indicating what you’re looking for, when, where and for how long, and we will see what is available and try and match you to it where possible.

Do I have to have a property-related degree to join as a graduate trainee?

No, we accept applications from candidates without an RICS or RTPI accredited degree, but who are interested in becoming a qualified surveyor or planner. You will need to specify that you hold a non-cognate degree as part of the application process.

Further details of courses can be found on the RICS website (www.rics.org.uk ) or RTPI website (www.rtpi.org.uk).

How long does the application process take?

We’ll acknowledge your application within seven days of receiving it. We’ll then review it in detail and let you know after the closing date whether you have been successful in getting to the assessment day. Our assessment days will be held during January/February.
