A note from our CEO
A note from our CEO
No other commercial property business is quite like us.
We look further then your qualifications and who you may, or may not, know. We are constantly evolving, starring into the future, and developing new areas of our business all the time. After all, buildings may be static but the industry never stands still.
Technology is the heartbeat of such change. From blockchain to bitcoin and all proptech in between we continue to stride forward with great professionals in situ to solve the biggest property challenges of our time.
This is why we seek a new breed of property professional. Those individuals with creativity, wit, a spark or two of ingenuity and, of course, drive. There really is no ideal background or profile – it’s all about relationship skills, communication and a thirst for new experiences.
Welcome on board!
Applications for the 2019 Placement Year Scheme are NOW CLOSED.
2020 applications will reopen on 1st October 2019.
We offer a placement year programme for university students who are looking to complete a year in industry as part of their degree course.
Our placement year students are treated exactly the same as the rest of our staff. Under close supervision you will contribute to the business from day 1 getting knee-deep in real instructions and project work.
Our placement students do not rotate but are positioned with teams who understand their needs, and support them in kind.
At LSH your placement year can count towards your APC. This means it’s possible to sit your APC and qualify after just 12-18 months on a graduate scheme. We hope you agree, the potential is pretty neat!
We accept applications from students pursuing the following APC Pathway:
- Commercial property practice
- Building surveying
Each year the following LSH offices typically host placement students:
As a placement year student you can expect:
- 12 months practical, on-the-job experience which can count towards your APC
- Involvement with real instructions for a wide range of clients and properties
- A dedicated APC counsellor
- 1-1 support from your manager
- Access to both our elective and 1st Year APC training courses to help develop your business skills
- A lively sports and social scene
You will receive all this in an inclusive, supportive and fun environment and to top it all off you will be rewarded with a competitive salary!
Can I get involved?
Our typical applicants are 2nd year students studying a RICS accredited undergraduate or postgraduate degree in Real Estate (or similar) or Building Surveying with a placement year option.
