Where can you apply

RICS cannot offer surveying apprenticeships, but you can use the websites below to help find your dream job:  

Or why not take things into your own hands and research a surveying organisation to see if they have vacancies or would be interested in taking you on as an apprentice.

Note: please be aware that some employers list apprenticeships under surveyor when they do not link to AssocRICS of MRICS. To be sure you are on an apprenticeship leading to RICS make sure they follow one of the above approved programmes.
