Where will I be located?

The majority of our graduate positions are based in London although opportunities do arise in our national 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 advertised between mid December and end January of each year. Summer work experience opportunities are advertised in March each year.  These will be advertised on Gerald Eve’s careers website and you will need to apply online.

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?

You’ll receive an automated message to acknowledge your application to ensure you that we’ve received your application.  We will review all applications together after the closing date and endeavour to contact all applicants before Christmas.  Our assessment days are held in January, although we may look to hold the Planning assessment date sooner.
