Property Graduate Scheme

Job description

Through a series of rotational placements, you’ll be working as a surveyor to secure land and access rights for a whole range of operational projects across the country. From temporary requirements for site compounds, project offices, access points, to more permanent requirements where the land supports new infrastructure. You’ll be working closely with colleagues to review and assess options and deliver results.

You’ll be responsible for securing tenants for major new investment schemes, against challenging financial targets. You’ll have the opportunity to lead on the sale or disposal of surplus land, to help prospective new tenants find suitable accommodation or help us deliver land in line with government housing targets. You may also be required to search for new uses for redundant railway accommodation, such as accommodation for charities. You’ll help to give buildings with no future a new lease of life whilst helping to deliver much needed residential units.

How long is the scheme and where you’ll be based
Three years and London, Scotland and Bristol.

What professional qualifications could you gain?

  • Chartered status
  • Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS)

What opportunities are available at the end of the scheme?
At the end of the scheme you’ll have the option to apply for roles within development, retail, commercial estates or property services as a surveyor, development surveyor, portfolio surveyor, portfolio manager or asset manager.

Why you should choose this scheme
This is the only graduate scheme within Network Rail that is aimed at the professional surveyor. You’ll be exposed to many different areas of property and experience functions you may not have realised existed at Network Rail. From day one we will recognise, develop and promote your talent to enable you to become one of our future senior leaders.

You’ll acquire the depth and breadth of knowledge needed to pass your Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) at the first attempt; our first time pass rate has been 100% for several years. At Network Rail, we want to help you achieve your full potential. As part of that, we will provide the investment you need to follow the professional competency pathway for commercial property (APC).
