That’s what you are guaranteed with the CBRE Graduate Programme.

The CBRE Apprenticeship Scheme was launched in September 2013, and has continued to grow in success each year, with 45 talented surveying apprentices working across the business on iconic client projects.

Ciaran Bird - UK Managing Director, wanted to create the CBRE Apprenticeship Scheme as an investment in the next generation and as a way of championing diversity within our sector. He has a personal belief in the Scheme, having started in the property industry himself aged sixteen.

The CBRE Apprentice Scheme is a four to five-year programme depending on what entry level you come in at, which will combine learning on the job, formal training and optimum support to gain a professional Chartered Surveyor qualification.

What does Cognate and Non-Cognate mean?

There are two common pathways to joining the Next Generation programme as a graduate.  You can join our programme as a ‘cognate’ degree holder.  This means that you hold an undergraduate degree that is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). 

You can still get a position on our Next Generation programme if your undergraduate degree isn’t property-related though. You can also join our programme as a ‘non-cognate’ degree holder.  This means that you hold a degree that isn’t in real estate, but we will sponsor and support you through a qualification that is accredited by the RICS – enabling you to sit your exams to become a Chartered Surveyor.
