About GVA UK

Who are we? We’re a trusted advisor to the real estate industry. As one of the UK’s leading companies in this industry, we pride ourselves on providing our clients with a range of services to support a project from start to finish. Our rich heritage gives us the edge when it comes to understanding this ever-changing market.  

We know that going straight into the working world after college is a big decision. That’s why we promise to support you through a two-year apprenticeship programme where you will study towards becoming a fully qualified surveying or planning technician. This is an opportunity to take on real responsibility for day one. All that we ask is that you have a genuine interest in property. If you have that, we can teach you the technical stuff.

Birmingham Schools Work Experience

Could you see yourself as a dynamic property consultant?

At GVA, we're responsible for providing our clients with advice that can help them thrive.

Our Birmingham office are looking for real estate experts of the future and, for you, that could all start here.

Starting on 9th July 2018, you could begin your journey into the property industry with two weeks of work experience with us.

It's a chance for you to get a taste of what working for a property firm is really like, from day-to-day life to the range of services we offer to a client to get them from inception to delivery of a project.


This is your chance to get first-hand experience of dealing with clients across a variety of sectors.

From day one until day ten, you'll be working as part of our team, taking on real responsibility and working on real clients.

At the end of it, if you show the right enthusiasm and drive, you'll be guaranteed a place on our School Leaver programme beginning in Autumn 2019.

What we're looking for

We're looking for students who see themselves as a property adviser of the future. You must also be able to commute to and from our Birmingham office at 3 Brindley Place (Birmingham, B1 2HL).

You need to be passionate about property and helping our clients to grow in an ever-changing market. We don't ask for any experience, but you must have a keen interest in business as a whole.

The details

To be eligible for this programme, you must be in year 12 at a college or sixth form within commutable distance of our Birmingham office. You must also be available from Monday 9th July until Friday 27th July.
You’ll also be rewarded for your hard-work. The programme pays £500 for the two weeks you’re with us – we don’t go in for unpaid work experience.
