A place to grow


Your career journey with us will be like no other.  Whatever stage you're at, you'll be supported to strengthen your existing skills or to develop entirely new ones. You'll also be encouraged to grow within your role, and take your career to the next level. It can be a steep learning curve, but we'll be there every step of the way.

I was encouraged to take the next step in my career. I was worried but I was supported

As you would expect from an accredited Investor in People, our learning and development offer is exceptional. We pride ourselves on the variety of opportunities we offer: from skills workshops, management development and accredited leadership programmes, to online learning. We'll have something to suit your needs. Professional and vocational qualifications are also supported if your career choice requires it.

Your starting point will always be to agree a personal development plan with your manager, tailored to your individual needs. But training isn't the only way in which you'll be able to grow. Show initiative, ability and drive, and you'll find opportunities to move up, or across into another role or area.

What's most important is that you're supported to fulfil your potential, achieve your goals and deliver the highest of standards in all that you do. Grow your capabilities with us, and be inspired to deliver the exceptional.

The only thing that stops people moving on or growing is their own imagination

Internships and Work Placements

We offer a rich variety of roles, including some involving specialist professions and industry leading expertise.  Our internship and work placement programmes play a key role in allowing us to share our knowledge and skills, and bring new ideas into the organisation.

Opportunities include placements in Building Surveying, Hospitality and Catering, Curatorial and Arts Conversation. All opportunities are paid and are offered either as sandwich placements for current students, or internships to those who have recently qualified. Whatever the discipline, you will undertake a real role and have responsibility from the very beginning, learning key skills and capabilities from the colleagues around you.
