Visiting properties and sites to establish painting, maintenance, repair and refurbishment needs, you’ll learn to price work and estimate costs. You’ll liaise with our trade teams,  specialist contractors and suppliers to manage projects to maximise customer satisfaction and service excellence. 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 Academy team and, depending on your experience, could also achieve further professional qualifications externally.

The Trainee Surveyor role will be challenging, but you’ll receive all the support you need to be successful. As a minimum, you will need to be educated to at least A-level standard (or equivalent). You will have achieved a Maths GCSE (or equivalent) at grade 4/C or above. You’ll enjoy working with numbers and possess strong IT skills, as well as a keen sense of commercial awareness. You will be a confident communicator able to build relationships with both colleagues and customers, and you’ll relish managing the financial aspects of complex contracts.

On completion of your training, you’ll be appointed as a fully-fledged Surveyor. As a company focussed on developing our teams, we are proud to say that many of our trainees have progressed to management roles during their careers
