Firm takes on 19 new graduate surveyors and planning consultants


Following a year of significant growth, which saw the acquisition of new transactional teams from Deloitte Real Estate and an increase in headcount to 460, Gerald Eve is planning for further growth with an intake of 19 people to its 2016 graduate training scheme, this year including two apprentices.

The new graduates will be based in a number of the firm’s network of offices including London, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds.

Simon Rees, managing partner at Gerald Eve, said: “Although we have grown our headcount significantly during the past year, we remain well aware of the continued need to invest in emerging talent. As such, our well-respected graduate training scheme remains central to our growth plans.”

Graduates at Gerald Eve benefit from an industry-leading package of mentoring, support and professional development designed to help them achieve their potential, with four six-month rotations allowing individuals to find the roles that suit them best. Former members of the graduate training scheme are represented throughout all levels of the firm.

Sarah Draper, HR director at Gerald Eve, added: “As with previous years, we have invested significant time and resources in to our industry-leading graduate training programme. Continuing to invest in this area is essential to the quality and diversity of our people-focused business.”
