What we can offer

Do you want to get paid for gaining a degree apprenticeship qualifications and learning on the job? And would you enjoy solving problems and working with some of the best minds in the business on some of the most critical challenges of our time, from the world’s tallest hotel to London’s Heathrow Airport and the Freedom Tower in New York?  If the answer is ‘yes’, come and join us as an apprentice and get your career off to the best start possible.

We are currently recruiting apprentices for our south-east region:

Epsom office - quantity surveyors
Cambridge office - building surveyors

Please note: There are opportunities to join either our Transportation or Faithful+Gould business and this will be discussed at telephone interview stage.

During your level 6 surveying apprenticeship no two days will ever be the same as you study and work with a variety of teams developing the skills you need to enjoy a great future. The programme involves a day release of web based learning (lectures, presentations, webinars and structured assessments), but you are also expected to spend time on your own. This self-study time is to review lecture notes, prepare course work assignments, work on projects and revise for assessments.


Apprentices will assist other surveyors on several projects. The role will include assisting in the completion of the following tasks:

Quantity Surveyor:

  • Preparing cost plans and cost estimates
  • Conducting value management and value engineering exercises
  • Managing and analysing risk
  • Managing the tendering process
  • Preparing contractual documentation
  • Controlling cost during the construction process.

Building Surveyor:

  • Managing design and construction
  • Undertaking building surveys and measured surveys
  • Analysing design and building defects
  • Project management and development monitoring
  • Miscellaneous services including accessibility and energy audits, specialist surveys (asbestos, damp etc.), conservation advice and sustainability advice.

This degree produces graduates who possess a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of building or quantity surveying - and the skills and experience which will allow you to analyse complex problems appropriate to role. The learning and development will help you to provide cutting-edge advice and drive you to ask ‘why’ making the world a better place – today and tomorrow.  

Who we’re looking for

Enthusiastic, inclusive and committed, you should be curious about the world around you and always want to learn more. To really succeed in the role, you will need to demonstrate that you have:

  • At least 5 GCSEs or equivalent including a minimum of a grade B OR 6 in Mathematics and a C OR 4 in English Language
  • Three A Levels grades C or above (minimum of 230 UCAS points) OR alternatively a BTEC level three with a minimum of two A Levels (C and above) OR equivalent
  • The ability to work in a team, assisting with the planning, design and smooth running of a variety of projects 
  • Creativity and strong communication skills
  • A practical mind, self-motivated and reliable.
