Graduate Programme

Graduate Programme At Shepherd Chartered Surveyors, we recognise Graduates and Apprentices joining us as the future of our business. To that end we have developed a bespoke training programme to enable Graduates and Apprentices to excel.

Whether you have an RICS accredited degree or a non-cognate degree, Shepherd Chartered Surveyors is seeking to attract good quality, rounded, enthusiastic and driven candidates to join our Graduate Programme.

We have a bespoke training programme which enables graduates to quickly stand on their own two feet while at the same time being fully supported both day to day and in their training to ensure graduates gain knowledge and experience across sectors to pass the APC and to become quality surveyors. Taking on graduates is an investment in the future and we aim to retain as many of our graduates as we can long term – indeed many of the current Partners and senior staff have risen through the company having started as graduates.

“From the very start, I was working with experienced surveyors gaining practical knowledge, while at the same time being supported by my supervisor to ensure I was gaining the relevant experience. This enabled me to grow in confidence and to pass the APC first time. The firm has lots of opportunities to progress and am looking forward to continuing my career with Shepherds”
