What you will do in your working day

The role of a Professional Quantity Surveyor is wide ranging. It includes monitoring finances, managing teams, administering contracts and finding solutions. Chartered Surveyors are in demand around the world so often find themselves in senior management roles and gaining experience across different industries throughout their careers.


Within the first couple of years of this apprenticeship, the role and duties will include some of the following:


·       Visiting live construction projects to review progress of the works

·       Assisting with preparing cost plans and financial reports

·       Measuring CAD drawings and 3D models to input into cost estimates

·       Attending site meetings and design team meetings

·       Creating project programmes and monitoring progress

The training you will be getting

As part of your apprenticeship you will attend Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford from September 2024 for a total duration of 4 years to obtain your level 6 BSc in Quantity Surveying.

Each academic year includes 2 semesters of 12 weeks. In your first year, you will attend university 2 days per week during term time. This reduces to 1 day per week for the remaining 3 years. 

Once you have graduated, you will have one more year of your apprenticeship preparing for the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) and sit your final assessment.

These courses will be fully funded by Hainstone including travel and expenses. You will be required to undertake regular private study alongside your full time role in order to successfully complete these courses.

Your learning will be supported by on-the-job experience gained in the workplace, where you will work alongside Chartered Surveyors delivering live construction and infrastructure projects. This will develop the required skills and knowledge to support your studies. Our internal training programme will ensure you gain appropriate experience at each stage of your career and enable you to take responsibility for the management of your own projects as soon as you are able. In addition to this, we will offer you the opportunity to gain work experience with other organisations within the construction industry and study additional external courses where these are required to support your development and progression.

What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship

The successful candidate will receive all the necessary training to become a Chartered Surveyor. There will be many opportunities to progress to more senior positions within the business based on experience and competence, including managing teams and more complex projects.
