Valuations Graduate Programme 2021
Our Valuations scheme is designed to give you everything you need to launch a career in property and is unique in its structure, unifying both residential and commercial rotations within one scheme. You don't need a property-related degree to apply for the Valuations pathway. This two-year graduate scheme is based in Baker Street, London and you'll be given exposure, experience, training and support so that, whatever skills and perspectives you bring, you’ll build on your potential.
You will experience an unparalleled breadth of opportunities and explore a diverse range of projects. You’ll get exposure to an extended portfolio of clients, customers and properties and we will help you discover where your strengths and interests are best placed within the rotation options at Knight Frank.
Alongside your work, we will support you to prepare and take your APC (Assessment of Professional Competence) qualification to become a Chartered Surveyor.
What to expect
If you have, or you are studying for a degree or MSc that is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), you will join us on the traditional two-year graduate scheme. We’ll support you in your journey to completing the prestigious Assessment of Professional Competence (APC). Each rotation with a different team in our business will be measured as a learning experience within your portfolio and by completing your APC, you’ll become a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), a professional body which will expand your network and horizons as you progress through your career.
If you have, or you are studying for a degree that is not property-related and not accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), we welcome your application. Pre-existing knowledge of real estate isn’t essential, because we’ll equip you with all the tools for success.
Training & development
- During your time as a graduate, you will train for your Assessment of Professional Competence (APC). Achieving this qualification enables you to become a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), a professional body for those in the industry.
- Training for your APC will take shape through a combination of seminars, workshops and self-study. You will gain exposure to a wide range of subjects, and have the opportunity to deep dive into several core competencies such as commercial Real Estate, Valuations and Strategic Real Estate.
- As well as learning together with the rest of your graduate cohort, you’ll also receive mentorship from experienced individuals from across the business and receive support from your counsellor, supervisor and early careers manager.
- If you are joining us from a non-property related degree background, we are dedicated to seeing you fulfil your potential at Knight Frank. You’ll undertake your MSc in Real Estate whilst on the scheme to ensure you have all the knowledge and tools to flourish in your career in property. The MSc is undertaken across 24 months and is awarded by University College of Estate Management (UCEM).
There are a number of different teams you can gain experience in through four 6-month rotations. Discover more about each of these areas so that when you join us, you're prepared to work with the early careers team making the choice of where you would like to gain experience.
