Graduate Development Scheme

Choosing your first role in the profession is an important decision. You need to find the organisation that is best suited to you but which will also challenge and provide the opportunities to develop your career.

At Stace, we continually invest in our people, and this includes enrolment on a two-year graduate development scheme which provides the launchpad platform for the start of your career.

We strive for our people to be the very best in the industry. Right from day one, we will encourage you to become chartered and we will provide you with our commitment to support you through the journey.

As part of the Graduate Development Scheme we provide structured chartership training that is designed to provide you with the support, guidance and professional experience required to achieve your qualification.

We encourage our people to become chartered members of their chosen industry professional bodies. Stace is a RICS-accredited company with an approved structured training scheme. All our graduate members are assigned a supervisor and counsellor to provide the necessary guidance.

It is part of our DNA to develop and grow organically. We are immensely proud that members of our graduate scheme have progressed through to senior positions at Stace.

Our graduates have always been a vital part of what we do and we look for talented and highly motivated individuals to form the next generation of Stace.

Graduate Development Scheme
  • What we’re looking for

    We expect our graduates to obtain chartered status, so we are ideally looking for a RICS-accredited degree at a minimum of 2:1 (although we will consider applications from graduates with degrees outside of property and construction).

    We look for the following qualities and attributes:

    • Self-motivated individuals, with the ambition to progress
    • Quick thinkers, who are prepared to take the initiative
    • Team player, who both share and take responsibility
    • Technically excellent and passionate about their chosen discipline
    • Excellent attention to detail
    • Commercially aware individuals, who will take an interest in the wider property industry
  • Career development

    We’re firmly committed to the learning and development of every member of our team.

    We encourage, provide and support all types of training and qualifications, and many of our team are currently working towards academic degrees as well as RICS, APM, CIOB, IOSH and other qualifications. Regular CPD events and seminars are arranged to allow you to keep CPD records up to date.

    You will be given the chance to work alongside partners and non-technical colleagues in an open plan office, who will support you throughout your two-year programme and beyond.

    As a Stace graduate, you will be a valued member of the team from day one. However, the responsibility for your career and your own learning and development will ultimately be yours.
