Graduate Testimonial

Matt Watermouth

“The graduate scheme at NHS Property Services has been a brilliant way to prepare for my APC and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with every team I have rotated into. I have had the chance to rotate into four different departments of the business where I have been given fantastic opportunities to gain experience and knowledge on several aspects of commercial property, while being given real responsibility to tackle challenges on my own. The company also offers an excellent support network. Chartered Surveyors from across the business are always happy to assist and advise on every aspect of the APC process, which has been hugely helpful when preparing for my final assessment.”

Adam Dyer

“The best thing about the job is the level of responsibility you will be given in such a short space of time. You’ll be trusted to lead on parts of projects working directly with consultants and our customers. Getting this level of responsibility across four fantastic teams as you rotate across Asset Management, will give you the breadth of experience you need to pass your APC. I’ve really enjoyed my first year at NHS Property Services and think it’s one of the best and most supportive environments to develop into a qualified surveyor.”
