Property Services Generalist Graduate Scheme

A fantastic opportunity to join our pioneering and successful public service organisation

After four very successful years of the Generalist Graduate programme in Property Services, we are reviewing the placements and redesigning the programme to fit our growing and ever changing business. We currently have a full capacity of graduates going through the existing two year programme and will look to relaunch the new scheme in the autumn of 2018. To ensure that you get to hear about the new scheme please register on our newjob.org website and add key words including graduate and property as your search words and you will then be notified by email when the vacancy is opened for applications.

The two-year scheme lets you explore different roles in Property Services. You can develop your skill set, with a guaranteed position upon completion of the scheme.

We accept graduates from all subject areas

You do not need to have a property-related degree to join our Generalist Graduate Scheme.
