This Apprenticeship opportunity sits within the Estates Directorate of HMRC in the Transformation Property team. You'll be working with property professionals within commercial property management as HMRC transform themselves from over 100 offices down to 13 large Regional Centres as part of one of the largest estate modernisation programmes.

The Chartered Surveyor Apprenticeship will typically take 4 years to complete. It includes a BSc (Hons) degree in Real Estate and qualification as a full chartered member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS). As an apprentice with HM Revenue & Customs, you will undertake a variety of roles to ensure that you have the experience required to be successful in your Apprenticeship.

On joining our Apprenticeship Programme you will work in a team of property professionals, primarily in the area of Commercial Property Management. Once you have undertaken relevant training and developed your confidence you will be given responsibility for your own caseload.

During the course of your Apprenticeship you will be working with your Supervisor and other team members, undertaking all aspects of Commercial Property Management (acquisitions, disposals, rent reviews, lease breaks) and valuations of different properties for a wide variety of purposes. Additionally, you will have support of the Learning and Development team who will provide you with advice and guidance throughout the Programme.

Because we take APC requirements seriously, an individual training programme will be put in place for you and we will do everything we can to make sure that you get the right mix of work and breadth of experience required to complete your Assessment of Professional Competence to become a Chartered Surveyor.The successful candidate/s will:

  • Be provided with training to gain a BSc (Hons) degree and undertake relevant work experience leading to full membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS)
  • Undertake on-site inspections of various properties like offices, and industrial properties.
  • Draw up plans on site.
  • Assist in the management of Business Rates (Check/Challenge Process)
  • Identify and respond to customer enquiries on the telephone, on site and in writing.
