The GBI Graduate Programme

In Grosvenor Britain & Ireland (GBI), we run a Graduate Programme that gives you the chance to start your career in property by working on a variety of high-profile projects with a high degree of responsibility. We support you through your professional training, which provides you with the skills and experience you need to achieve the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyor's Assessment of Professional Competence (APC).

Our Graduate Programme is open to both graduate and undergraduate applicants, from all backgrounds and with degrees from all disciplines. 

If you haven’t previously studied a property-related degree, we support you (financially and with study leave) through a part-time RICS accredited Masters (MSc) course with the Henley Business School, University of Reading.  This enables you to complete your APC within the same two-year period as others who join us with a property-related degree.

Receiving a competitive starting compensation package, graduates join the GBI business at our central London office.

Once you have completed the Graduate Programme and achieved your APC, we encourage you to take up a permanent role within the business. Our graduates go on to gain experience working in different teams and potentially with the other regional Operating Companies within the Grosvenor Group, enabling them to take on more senior positions as their career develops.

Programme structure

The GBI Graduate Programme comprises two 12-month placements within the business. Placements could include working within a location team supporting on asset management or working with our development teams on projects either within or outside London (such as Oxford or Cambridge).

As part of the Graduate Programme, we support you with:

  • APC technical training: you will receive both in-house and external training to ensure you are fully prepared for your APC.
  • Core skills: we have a broad and varied Learning and Development Programme with courses focussed on both personal and management development.
  • Dedicated supervisor and counsellor:  All graduates are matched with a dedicated supervisor to support and guide you.


Who we’re looking for

At Grosvenor, we are looking for people who are motivated by our collective purpose of improving properties and places in a way which is successful commercially and of lasting benefit to society. We look for people who can help us deliver this in line with our values of integrity, respect and trust.

If you’re good at building relationships with a variety of stakeholders and have the ability to think about things from different perspectives, we want to hear from you.

Our Graduate Programme is a steep learning curve. We expect you to be able to learn quickly, take ownership of projects and see them through to completion. You need to be a natural communicator, who can adapt to different situations and take on board the opinions of your colleagues when working collaboratively. The ability to analyse a range of data and information and be able to make sound recommendations is a must. 

People at Grosvenor represent a rich variety of backgrounds and experiences. When selecting new graduates, we aren’t just looking for people with strong academic credentials; we value many other qualities and strengths.
