Graduats line up at D&R

Welcome to the  2022 Graduate Team!

Many congratulations to our six new Graduate Surveyors who began their career journey with us at the start of September. After a two-day induction at Head office, all of our Graduate Surveyors are settling into their new roles. They are located throughout our offices and are all eager to learn more.

Everyone at D&R is delighted to welcome them aboard and we look forward to watching their careers at D&R grow and develop.

2023 Graduate Scheme

The application process for the 2023 Graduate Scheme is now open.

At Davidson and Robertson, we offer a tailored Graduate Scheme, providing extensive training and support to all Graduate Surveyors throughout their APC journey, on their way to becoming a Chartered Surveyor.

As a Graduate Surveyor at Davidson and Robertson, you will:

·         Be rotated around all three departments within the company on an 8 month rotation basis, ensuring that you are exposed to all specialisms

·         Be given a dedicated supervisor and counsellor who will provide you with support and guidance throughout your APC journey

·         Have all your training costs, professional subscriptions and training course costs covered by Davidson and Robertson

·         Attend in house training days specific to your APC journey, including presentation training and mock interviews

·         Have 5 days study leave to help you to prepare for your final assessment.

At Davidson and Robertson, as well as learning and working, there are fun and exciting opportunities for Graduate Surveyors to participate in – which include companywide sports days, BBQs, black tie dinner events and team-building exercises, including trips to Go Ape.

We have many long-serving employees with the company. It reflects our culture which strives to ensure that all employees feel accepted, valued and have a sense of belonging.

Martin Hall joined the company 31 years ago beginning his journey as a Graduate Surveyor and working his way up to Senior Director. Niall Milner joined the company 21 years ago as a Graduate Surveyor, and now Heads up our Property and Forestry Team, and Chris Edmunds joined the company 11 years ago as a Graduate Surveyor – he is now a D&R Director.

Martin, Niall and Chris are a testament to the success of our Graduate Scheme, and we hope that our Graduate Surveyors applying for 2023 will be our next generation of leaders.
