24% of our Partners started off on our graduate programme. Are you next?

The Workman Graduate Scheme is one of the best in the industry. We are known for nurturing and supporting our graduates whilst providing the right experience for career development.

We know the best way to learn is by doing and as a new graduate you will be immediately assigned to a portfolio of properties. You will be making a valuable difference to our clients, on real projects with close supervision and support from our friendly and approachable senior staff.

Two distinct programmes

We offer a two-year structured training programme with well-respected tutors. We support you to become a RICS Chartered Surveyor through the highly regarded APC programme.

As recognised specialists within both service sectors, our graduate scheme is non-rotational. Instead, we have two different pathways in Property Management and Building Surveying so that experienced professionals support you in your preferred discipline.

Both graduate programmes have specific qualifying requirements. Please select the appropriate discipline to find out what they are.

Who are we looking for?

A successful Graduate candidate will be;

  • Hard working and resilient
  • Thrive from working as part of a team
  • Committed to delivering high levels of service whilst being results driven
  • Passionate about developing within your chosen career
  • Enjoy becoming part of the Workman life and getting involved with social events outside of usual 9-5.

Why choose Workman?

Our programme is constantly evolving. Each year we evaluate our success and identify any improvements that are necessary to ensure our program remains current and relevant to market conditions. This is why we continue to have such an impressive APC pass rate.

We offer a large range of fantastic benefits from the very beginning and these are reviewed once you reach each milestone throughout the programme.

Workman is proud to be part of the industry ‘Offers Charter’.

 

What will it be like

As a new graduate, you will receive on-the-job, practical experience alongside training and guidance from our experienced staff and respected industry training providers.

You will be assigned a Partner, Senior Associate or Associate who will work closely with you, coaching and developing you into a budding Property Manager or Building Surveyor of the future.

In the first two years you will have six-monthly reviews with senior staff to ensure you are building up the experience and confidence to succeed in the role and develop far beyond it.

During your training you will also need to study to pass your professional exams.

If you have obtained an RICS accredited property related degree you will enrol straight away on the APC programme in order to become a Chartered Surveyor.

If you have a good degree in any other discipline (2:1 or above), we will guide you to convert your undergraduate degree before commencing on the APC programme.

With us, whatever discipline you chose to study at university, you will get financial support and extensive coaching to ensure you succeed in reaching this highly regarded career milestone.
