Graduates and Trainees

We actively look for the best and brightest graduates and trainees to join our training scheme. It is tailor made to give those new or recent to the industry the necessary experience and skills to become the successful future leaders of Core Five.

Launched in 2014, Core Foundations is our RICS accredited Graduate training scheme committed to ensuring effective and successful graduate and trainee development. The Scheme is carefully designed, providing graduates and trainees with strategies to progress to Chartered designation.

Core Foundations is chaired by Howard Spurgin FRICS who is actively involved with RICS including, amongst other commitments, as an Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) Assessor and an Auditor of the APC Final Assessment process. This up to date and hands-on knowledge gives our graduates and trainees first class support in being successful in the APC practical training and experience that leads to RICS membership.

“Having been involved in surveyor training for over 25 years nothing gives me more satisfaction than helping the next generation embark on their own careers. We continue to strive to create a successful training environment at Core Five so that we can be considered a Structured Trainer of choice amongst graduates and other trainees.”

Howard Spurgin BSc FRICS, Core Foundations Chairman

We pride ourselves on offering the infrastructure and support of a bigger firm with the individual attention and team atmosphere of an independent Partnership, to ultimately give you the best possible start in the industry.

Since joining Core Five I have received exposure on a range of fantastic schemes pertinent to my training requirements which has given me the breadth of experience vital to fulfil the requirements of my APC structured training period.”
