Graduate Schemes

We pride ourselves on being an independent multi-disciplinary construction and property consultancy with a reputation for professional dedication and technical expertise.

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. Each of our divisions take great pride in passing on the culture, knowledge and technical expertise that transforms our graduates into well rounded and respected industry professionals.

When you join us, you will be enrolled on our extensive Graduate Scheme which is both challenging and rewarding. It provides you with an unrivalled combination of career opportunities, study support and hands-on training, which enables you to move quickly into management or specialist positions.

This scheme is an excellent opportunity for you to obtain a solid foundation on which to develop your career with us, and also complements the different routes available to becoming chartered, where relevant.

The scheme will take the form of a two-year programme, commencing in September 2019, and will provide you with a wide range of experience, support and guidance to develop essential business skills and industry knowledge.

What we do
  • 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).

    Our clients know and trust our high levels of professionalism, intellectual abilities and attention to detail, so we look for the following qualities in our graduates:

    • 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.
