Trainee Surveyor Programme

You’ll have real responsibility from day one; your time will be split between on the job training and working on live projects. You’ll learn all the skills you’ll need for a bright future in our growing business from our experienced Surveyors and Business Managers.

Visiting properties and sites to establish painting, maintenance, repair and refurbishment needs, you’ll learn to estimate costs. You’ll liaise with our trade teams, subcontractors and suppliers to manage projects to maximise customer satisfaction and profit.  As your training progresses, you will be involved in tendering and winning new work and managing relationships with key clients. You will join our other Trainees in attending our structured modular training programme delivered by our own Academy and depending on your experience, could also achieve further professional qualifications externally.

The role will be challenging but you’ll receive all the support you need to be successful. This includes the opportunity to be seconded in your second year of the programme, giving you the chance to broaden and deepen your experience within Ian Williams.

On completion of your training scheme you’ll be appointed as a fully-fledged Surveyor. In addition, we are proud to say that many of our trainees have progressed to management roles following their training.

To be eligible to apply, you’ll need to be educated to at least A-level standard, or equivalent. Although not essential to your application, a surveying related qualification would be advantageous, such as an HNC or degree.  You should have a logical, analytical approach, good spatial awareness and numerical ability, excellent IT skills, possess the ability to communicate with all types of people, including internal and external stakeholders.

We run our recruitment for trainee surveyors on an annual basis, and the vacancies available on this year’s scheme are now live.
