Graduate surveyors receive a timely boost

Published: Wednesday, 18 April 2012   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

British graduate surveyors received a significant boost this week with the news that property consultancy Knight Frank LLP will once again be running their graduate recruitment scheme.

The company regularly recruits into graduate surveying roles in both their commercial and residential divisions.

The group are currently celebrating a pre-tax profit of £101.9 million and a group turnover of 308.4 million for the year ending 31st March 2011.

Nick Thomlinson, Senior Partner and Chairman of the Knight Frank Group, explained the recent success of the company.

“In the UK, our residential business once again out-performed the market and our commercial division exploited the improved transactional activity.” Thomlinson also renewed the company’s commitment to their graduate scheme.

“Our graduate scheme continues to thrive – this year we have taken on 26 new graduates,” he said.
Specifically, graduates who are looking to work abroad may be particularly interested in taking up a position with the property consultants.

Thomlinson went on to say that the company’s global strategy “remains focused on organic growth in key markets with the best people.

“This year we have opened offices in Dubai, South Africa, Australia and Switzerland and expanded our network in China, Australia, India and the UK.”

The graduate jobs market in the UK is at a real low right now. Because of this, several graduates are considering looking abroad to find attractive positions. It could be the ideal way to spread your wings and learn a range of new skills, while also earning as a result of a graduate position.

Have you ever considered working within the property consultancy sector? Have you struggled to find a graduate position within the UK? Would you consider relocating abroad if the position and wages met your expectations?
