Second Year APC Graduate Testimonials

We asked our graduates in their second year of the graduate scheme about their experience at the NHS Property Services so far.

Hear from our grads

We asked some of our fourth cohort of graduates, now in their second year of the programme, to share their experience of working at NHSPS.

They explain why they applied to NHSPS, their roles and rotations, support on offer, and their advice to anyone applying to the programme. 

Shanice Blakeley, Graduate Surveyor

"Over a year in I can see that the way the programme is structured provides me and others with great skills to become chartered surveyors."

“When starting this graduate scheme I didn't know what to expect. However, now over a year in I can see that the way the programme is structured provides me and others with great skills to become chartered surveyors. The programme allows us to obtain a great understanding of all the different areas of surveying required for the Commercial real estate pathway and see how each department in our rotations interlink with each other.”

William Bronze, Graduate Surveyor

‘’The graduate scheme at NHS Property Services offers a unique experience into the world of commercial real estate."

"The 24-month structured training programme will give you, as a graduate, the opportunity to lead on intricate property transactions and will develop a greater understanding of not only the NHS estate and our partners, but also how a client-side property company functions.  I cannot speak highly enough of the graduate scheme. The constant APC support and guidance gives me confidence towards becoming a knowledgeable Chartered Surveyor.’’
